I was feeling a little, I don't know, burned out after the holidays. I wanted to sew something, but I didn't want to do any measuring, or cutting, or thinking. So I came up with this equation that even my addled brain could handle: 1 charm pack + 1 yard of flannel = 1 baby quilt.
I had a Fandango charm pack...
and the yard of flannel that I won in Kate Spain's giveaway. (Like the satellite dish in this picture? Shh...we don't have satellite TV. High class here at the headquarters of Katie's Korner. Our neighbors have their dish mounted on a post in the front yard, so this seems like a minor infraction...)
I quilted in diagonal lines--I wanted the quilt to stay soft, and I wanted to practice the technique. The binding is a dot from Midwest Modern, which ended up being a pretty good match.
Now that this is finished (I don't have a recipient yet...but I'm assuming I'll know someone who has a baby girl at some point!), I'm ready to move onto something that requires a bit more brain power. Maybe Cherie's dresden block for one of my new bees?
