Baby's Quilt: Charm Pack Wonky Stars Finish

Feb 15, 2012
Pin It Hold the phone.  Say what?  Yes, you heard that right folks.  Today I am posting a second quilt finish for the week.  That is insane if you ask me..... but we're getting down to the wire, so I gotta get my sewing time in before the babymoon begins.


Here it is.  Love!  HideAway is the perfect choice in my mind for a gender neutral quilt.  I was short just a couple charms, so I supplemented with 2 prints from my stash.  All on Kona White of course.  It's about 36" x 36".


I used the Wonky Star tutorial found in the Block Library.  It was perfect for using a charm pack.  Oh, and did I mention everything came from my stash?  Boy, does that feel good.


Some DS Picnics and Fairground prints for the backing and binding.  That little green gingham is so sweet.


I can't wait to use it!  Both my other kids used the baby quilts I made them heavily.... tummy time, diaper blowouts, reflux and all.  I expect this quilt will absolutely take a beating.  But that's exactly why  I made it this way.  The wonky stars look eye catching, yet are a snap to whip up, so this quilt came together very quickly.  I'd recommend it if you're looking for a quick gift.

I even (gasp) pre-washed and dried this one.  Those quilty friends who have been to my house notice that the majority of my quilts have not been washed.  I am secretly afraid something really bad will happen, so I avoid it if I can.  But with a baby quilt, there's no denying it's gonna need washed.  A lot.

Finished before the big day.  Mama's happy.  :)  *sigh of relief* Pin It

  1. It's a perfect little baby quilt :)
    I have promised my niece a quilt for her bed (will be my largest to date) & this is one pattern I will show her. If she wants it anytime this year, it will have to be easy!

  3. I love it! Your baby will have lots of pretty pictures to look at during tummy time. :) Congratulations on finishing it before the big day. I remember how good it felt when I accomplished a big project before each of my wee ones was born. :)

  6. I don't like to wash my quilts either! I just like the flat crispness of a new quilt. I've never had anything bad happen when washing a quilt only when prewashing (thank goodness) some cheap batik fabric. Keep buying good fabric from good companies and you should be fine. The playmat is adorable I'm sure you will get a lot of compliments when you are out with it.
