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!!!! Total cuteness overload :)

Week 5:

 To the Moon Block


Twinkle Twinkle Block

Twinkle Twinkle Quilt from Charming Baby Quilts Book

Sewing Tips: 
  • When using directional fabrics,  make sure your fabric pattern is the correct direction before cutting! 
  • For perfect half-square triangles - I used my AccuQuilt GO! Qube Half-Square Triangle die (which I love as no trimming is needed).  
  • Other options for half-square triangles: Bloc-loc Ruler and Half-Square Triangle Paper on a Roll
  • 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!
  • The Twinkle Twinkle block will be placed on the back of your quilt - I would choose fabrics that will match your backing fabric.
