hunky dory quilt (& giveaway)

Hello!  I’m back today to share with you a baby quilt I made from a charm pack of Chez Moi’s fabric line, Hunky Dory.  I bought the charm pack waaaaay back in 2011 (when I started quilting) and decided it had sat in my stash, sad and alone, for too long.

The inspiration for the pattern was from an infant car seat quilt that I saw on Pinterest, so I can’t take any credit for the pattern.  I simply sewed 2 charm squares together to make 2 half square triangles, then laid them out on point, sashed them, and added setting squares.  If I’m not mistaken, this was my first time laying out a quilt on point.  I love how much it adds to this quilt to have the blocks on point, and I think trying new things out on a baby size quilt is a great way to practice new techniques.  If you are curious, the charm squares started at 5”, the half square triangles finished at 4”, and the quilt finished at 34.5” x 41.5”.   

I bought 5 yards of this blue print from the Hunky Dory line when I purchased the charm pack, so I used a yard to back this quilt.  

I sent this quilt out to Abby Latimer of Latimer Lane Quilting and she quilted it with the panto, Lisa’s Lace.  I love the daisies and the little butterfly wings!   

For binding, I used the same polka dot fabric as the sashing.  (I used the same fabric on my daughter’s toddler quilt.)    

***  I'm thinking about selling this quilt. If you are interested in purchasing, please email me at for more details.  ***

Giveaway ::  I have 3 charms (5" squares) left over from making this quilt, as well as one floral fat quarter that I didn't end up using.  Just leave a comment below if you’d like to be in the giveaway drawing.  Make sure there is a way I can contact you!  If you are a no-reply blogger, be sure to leave your email address!  US only please since I will pay shipping.  I will pick a winner on March 17th at 5:00 pm CST.   Giveaway now closed & winner announced in 'giveaway winner' post.
