Two Charm Square Quilts

 My Charm Square Quilt is all done and washed. I used three "Terrain" charm packs,  "Snow" Kona Cotton for the sashings and 100% Hobbs batting.
Amy Smart has a great charm square tutorial called "Baby Lattice Quilt" on the Moda Bake Shop over here.
I enjoy this quilt so much and it is hanging in my quilting room. I have a curtain rod on the wall for displaying quilts. I got the rod at Target for under $25, not bad at all.
 Here is my"Summer Breeze" charm pack quilt. I had so many sashing strips leftover from the previous charm square quilt. I used three charm packs in a straight setting.
Below is how the quilt looked before it went in the washing machine.
I used 80/20 Bleached (white) batting.
This is how it crinkled up after I took it out of the dryer.  I  love washed, crinkled quilts.
I went with a light blue solid Kona Cotton (Blue Bell)  for the border and binding.
 The quilting panto is called "Bluebell", so perfect for this quilt.
I was so lucky, I found this navy fabric with light blue and white flowers in my stash for the backing.
After laying the quilt on my bed, I decided I would like to make another charm quilt big enough for my bed.  When that someday will be, I am not sure.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and happy quilting,
