Charm Pack Charity Quilt Update

I finally settled on a pattern for my charm pack charity quilt.  
I wanted something I could make relatively quickly.  
I borrowed a book from a friend that had this pattern in it.  
The pattern is called Connect Four.  
It was so quick to make!  
I cut out the backgrounds and did all the sewing in one day!


I had that pale yellow in my stash and the charm pack was from a swap in the A2MQG.  
We were supposed to make a quilt using the charm squares from the swap.  
I ended up with enough blocks to make 2 tops the size we need for donating to Mott.


Sorry for the poor lighting, my hallway is not lit well at night.


It needed to be just a touch larger so I need to put borders on it.


Oh, thank goodness the quilt inspector showed up!  
Don't know how I would get anything done without her supervision!  


There is the first top all put together.
  I realized that I did not have enough of the yellow to do a border for the second one 
so I went digging through my stash and you know what?  
I found more of it!  If you need a super easy baby quilt this one just might be a good one!


I need to find some flannel from the stash and get this ready to quilt!  
I did get the binding on another quilt all sewn down on Sunday too while binge watching Haven 
with my daughter.

Hubby has been feeling ill with a cold all week, so we were kind of low key this weekend.  
I actually had to do some cooking (ew, ick).  
I made some chili and it turned out pretty well.

What is the finished size of the quilt? The squares don't look like they are 5" charm squares. It's a lovely pattern you came up with.

What a great layout for a charm square quilt! Looks fabulous paired with the pale yellow solid. How lucky you found more of it hidden in your stash! Gotta love spending time with your special girl while sewing on that binding.

Nice design for a quick charity quilt! Cute quilt inspector.

Cute quilt, I'll have to go check online for that, I do charity quilts all the time and I have tons of scraps that would work great.

Kat said...

Great idea.

Love this quick quilt. I am a member of the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild and we are marking charity quilts for teenaged moms. I will have to search for this pattern online. Your quilt supervisor looks exactly like mine.

It looks like a great easy pattern for a baby or child-size quilt. How will you quilt it? I love the yellow (that looks creamy in the photos).
