a box of charm squares


I have accumulated a box of charm squares over the last few years

I can't resist the mini collection of my favourite fabric lines

I love them so much I find it hard to actually use them 

but all that is set to change 

my first attempt to empty the box is a Granny Charm Square quilt for a baby girl

using up 1 pack of Hunky Dory by Chez Moi & around 4-5 additions to make up the numbers

I saw this cute quilt over on Pinterest 





I have purchased not a dot for this quilt & pieced some batting scraps for the wadding


 

mostly straight line quilting with some outlining of the inner cross



happy stitchy weekend from a very soggy Qld

Divine to say the least. I love the layout and the colours! Just gorgeous Lorraine. (And I love your pinterest collection, I could re-pin the lot!)

Love this, Lorraine, it's so fresh. I never seem to think to make smaller quilts.

Hope the rain stops soon.
