Ever get inspired by a quilt and it sticks with you?
And while you are bothering to cut fabrics, why not just make two quilts, eh?
I will not lie, it took me a load of fabric elimination to come up with the boy one. The girl combo came much easier. My pile of toss out squares grew and are now destine for a scrappy charm quilt all their own at a later date.
I think sometimes I am so anxious to move onto the next new idea in my head that I cast aside the simple love of a square. My Modern Charm Class gave me the perfect excuse.
I needed these both as class samples soon and made a visit to my friend Sandie’s for a date with her and her long-arm. We originally planned on placing them side-by-side so I could quilt both at once, but decided they each needed their own quilted personality.
The boy got a spiraling circle.
The bindings are divine. I love to cut into something waiting patiently in my stash.
The only fabric I was in need of was a few squares of the pink vans, so I called in to one of my peeps. Thanks Amber for the vans, but mostly it was really fun to finally meet you! xo
