Charm Square Baby Quilt

charm square baby quilt city weekendI’ve been invited to teach a class at Creative Craft Retreat this year. Now I wont just have a weekend all to myself with crafty company and meals laid on, but I’ll get to share my skills with my friends. {I’m a teacher in my heart so I’m looking forward to teaching again.} I’m teaching a super easy quilt especially for people who’ve never made a quilt before. So I’ve been working on the sample and here it is.

I laid the squares out to create a “rainbow” or colour wash effect from corner to corner. The back is aqua on white and the machine quilting is easy lines back and forth all over.

Of course while I was sewing I decided that I needed to make a second slightly bigger quilt for people who wanted  a little more challenge or a larger finished quilt, so expect to see another quilt soon.

UPDATE: You can see the quilts that my class created on retreat in this post

If you like this Oliver & S fabric, I’m sorry to say that it is pretty hard to come by as it came out last year. But their newest range, Modern Workshop, is available at the Fat Quarter Shop.
