Quilt in a Day

I woke up one day last week and had to make a quilt and it needed to be finished in a day. My teen was telling me about a friend of hers and I knew I needed to give her a quilt.

I searched my quilt closet first (I have a few finished quilts ready to gift) but none of them said teen girl to me.

I ended up using some of my scrap charm squares. When my scrap bucket gets a little full I spend a bit of time cutting out charm squares, mini charms, and 2.5" strips.

I took out red and navy charms and ended up with a soft sherbert pallet.
I quilted in the ditch and attached the binding by machine.

I ended up liking this quilt and the sewing process I made a similar quilt with low volume charms.

This year I set a New Year's resolution to give away 10 quilts this year and I am up to 6.

  2. Very pretty quilt. Love the colors--and that you were able to make it out of scraps.

    1. Thank you Angela! I am trying to use up my scraps. They have taken over!

  3. How lovely that you were able to make something so pretty so quickly with what you had on hand. I'm sure it was greatly appreciated.

    1. Thank you! I love having a reason to make a quilt! It doesn't usually take much, haha
