Farm Charm Collection: 
For my Charming Baby Sew Along Quilt, I'm using the Farm Charm Collection by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics. I love her illustrations and these farm animals are just too cute! Seriously look at the horses, sheep, and chickens!!!!

Week 1:

Dream Big Quilt Blocks

Dream Big Quilt from Charming Baby Quilts Book

Hugs and Kisses Quilt Blocks

Hugs and Kisses Finished Quilt from Charming Baby Quilts Book

Sewing Tips: 

  • When using directional fabrics,  make sure your fabric pattern is the correct direction before cutting! Did you notice one of my sheep prints  is sideways in my Dream Big block...oops ;)
  • I love using Diagonal Seam Tape by Cluck Cluck Sew. It is such a time saver as you do not need to draw the corner to corner sewing line on the backside of the fabric. 
  • Don't forget to use pins for perfect points! I love the Magic pins!
  • Press, press, press these blocks!

Over the next six weeks we are going to make a cute sampler quilt 66.5"x 88.5"  using blocks from each quilt project in the Charming Baby Quilts book by Melissa Corry. Each Wednesday, Fat Quarter Shop will release a free pattern with (2) blocks from (2) different quilts from the Charming Baby Quilts book. You will need the Charming Baby Quilts book for complete block piecing instructions (here).  

From Fat Quarter Shop and It's Sew Emma, "Charming Baby Quilts brings 10 original baby quilts to life, featuring the classic 5” square Charm Pack precut. Each design uses one, two or three Charm Packs, making this an essential book to have on hand for gifts and celebrations." Charming Baby Quilts book available HERE.
