Charming Plus Baby Quilt Finished

I started two quilt-alongs in October, and I am really happy that it is almost the end of November, and I have one finished: my Charming Plus Baby Quilt. This quilt-along is being hosted by Tisha of When I decided to make finishing this baby quilt my November ’16 OMG goal, I knew it would conflict with making some Christmas presents, but I just pushed back those deadlines a wee bit. And maybe they’ll be New Year’s gifts or if I get really desperate, Chinese New Year’s gifts!


I did the quilting myself on this project. The front looks mostly fine, but the back has to be described as “organic straight lines.” In order to see the back, that will involve an in-person visit, so it ought to narrow down the number of people who will think I was QUI (quilting under the influence, honestly I just had a little bit of wine,  but perhaps it was the coffee!).

I actually really quite like this quilt. It has scraps from many projects I’ve completed the last two years and bee blocks this past year. And those colors quite float my boat. I machine stitched the binding on as I will sharing this “baby” quilt with the kitties who like to lie on my bed (and hopefully it will help protect my huge labor of love, my Terra Australis Quilt), and I suspect it will washed a fair amount.

If you have a moment, check out some other Charming Plus quilts on Instagram #charmingplusquilt and #charmingplusqal. I love all the different color schemes.

As far as my other quilt-along, look for a WIP post sometime soon.

  2. I think it turned out beautifully, Mary. And I giggled at QUI – for me that would definitely be due to caffeine influence. 🙂 How awesome that scrappy quilts tend to come imbued with so many great memories.
