Simple is Good!

You might recognize this quilt from my earlier post Quilting with my Furry Children.
Well, I finally finished it last night! It was one of those neglected quilt tops that kept giving me the evil eye for not finishing it right away. I really like the simplicity and modern feel of this quilt. The top is made up of 54 charm squares and 1 yard of white fabric. Though it’s a simple, straight forward quilt, as promised in my earlier post I will post a tutorial.

I’m proud of this one. 🙂 I basted it myself (I usually use my quilting frame which naturally bastes quilts for me). I used my 6″x23″ ruler to help flatten out any bumps.

I also machine quilted this without my quilting frame 🙂 I quilted wavy grid lines using my walking foot. I’m really loving straight-stitching designs, and hope to do more of that.
I binded it last night, followed by blind-stitching the back within an hour. I was in the zone.
I just love the Hullabaloo collection my Moda. I snagged the charm pack as soon as I saw them, and whipped up this quilt in no time. This is a great quilt to show off your latest and greatest charm pack collection, so stay tuned for my upcoming tutorial. 🙂

Oh and I haven’t forgotten…I’ll be posting the fabric giveaway winner on Friday, so stay tuned for that also. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    Wow That's nice. In your tutorial could you show how to do the blind stitch on the binding? Your tutorials are great.
