Charlotte Baby Quilt Finish & WIP List

32"x 32" | Pattern: Charlotte from Three Times the Charm! by Me and My Sister Designs | Using Malka Dubrawsky's Stitch in Color & Kona White

Wow, I haven't posted about this one since the end of February! Time speeds by way too fast! This is my first baby quilt. There are no babies in my life, but I had a Stitch in Color charm pack and I thought it would go well with this pattern. I absolutely love the color! I'll be saving this until either we or one of my siblings have babies!

I quilted on the diagonal with yellow.

I was wishy-washy on selecting the binding for this one. I had actually already bought fabric for the binding (the cheater panel for Stitch in Color), but I changed my mind and ran to the fabric store. See, this is why I try not to plan ahead! ;) I do love the the stripes on the border. I'll admit that I had some pangs of selection regret as I was sewing it down, but in the end I came around!

I think one of my new favorite parts of quilting is posing quilts :D

The binding is perfect - I change my mind by the time I get to that stage all the time. Love the skinny outer border, really a nice pop.
