Amazing ... another week, another finish. I wish I could continue this mini trend. This was a really easy, small quilt.
It was a beautiful sunny day when I took this picture. I decided it was nice to leave a little sky in the picture. (Many thanks to hubby who was holding the quilt.)
This is a free pattern from Elizabeth Hartman. She offers a version using charm packs and a bigger version using layer cakes. You can find the directions here. You can also find other free projects by going to her website and looking under "Projects." (Every time I show this quilt it takes me forever to find the web page as it isn't listed as a free pattern, although it is.)
You can read the back story on the charm squares here. The squares that were cut in half were actually cut from stash. I was able to introduce a little calm into the mix with them. It's a very easy quilt even if you cut your own 5" squares. Below you can see the backing. I was really happy to use that older piece of flannel. The only downside is it's hot in central Virginia in the summer -- who's going to want to use a part flannel quilt? It's going to a NICU in the Richmond area through Country Piecemakers in Powhatan, VA.I'm trying to decide what fabrics should be cut next for one of these quilts. Hum, maybe I should think about cutting 10" squares for a bigger quilt?
Here's Sharon's version that looks completely different from mine.
