At the beginning of the year I was contacted by the lovely folks of Fat Quarter Shop asking if I wanted to take part in another one of their awesome Shortcut Quilts. Well of course!!! A few days later I had some beautiful Sphere Charms along with some Bella Solid Navy charms in the mail and since there was no cutting to start with (totally awesome!!!!) I got right to sewing this Charm Pack Cherry Quilt.
This quilt is so fun to put together and so incredibly easy. It really is a shortcut quilt and goes together in a day or two. Don't you just love having a quick "go to" baby sized quilt that you can just whip together when you are in a tight spot for time ;)
And Kimberly of the Fat Quarter Shop has done an excellent video tutorial of how to put the quilt together filled with lots of great tips on pressing, nesting, and just about every little tidbit that will make putting this quilt together a breeze!!
I was super excited to find that my quilt was being used as one of the "backgrounds" for the video. It was so fun to see it pop in and out of the shot every once and a while. And here is the fun shot the Fat Quarter Shop took of the quilt. I must admit, a much nicer shot than the ones I have taken on the poor dying grass :)
You can download the free pattern for Charm Pack Cherry right here at the Fat Quarter Shop. This is such a great little series they are putting on and I am so happy to be a small part of it :)
Oh, and I quilted mine with al all over swirl design on my home machine. This is one of my favorite go to designs and I know, I have not forgotten that I promised I would do a video of this swirl quilting. My tripod is having a few issues at the moment (the duct tape just doesn't seem to be holding it together) so I am trying to rig another solution. I will get this done, I will, I will I will ;)
