As I said, this is a Charm Pack friendly quilt. You just need 2 Charm Packs and a Yard of Background fabric to whip this adorable little quilt up. I used Ruby by Bonnie and Camille for Moda fabrics and I just love how perfectly All Girl it is without being just pink!!! And of course, it is out of print now, but a lot of Bonnie and Camille lines have similar color schemes!! And you can just as easily pick a Charm Pack that reads All Boy and then I would just change out the flower applique to a star ;)
And speaking of that applique, I think that is really what set this All Framed Up quilt apart. I love the framework geometric design of the quilt, and adding a dainty applique in the center just finishes it perfectly. It really does make it pop in the frame of the quilt. And raw edge applique is so fun and fast and a great way to add that pop. If you have never tried it, I recommend checking out my Applique Basics Video Tutorial, as it is a great way to add to your quilts that is really much easier than it looks ;)
And this All Framed Up quilt is still a favorite in our home after 8 years. It snuggled Jocelyn for the first year of her life, and ever since then, its new home has been in her stuffed animal basket. I still will see her occasionally taking them all out of the basket and setting them all on a blanket for a pretend picnic. So sweet!!! This quilt just has a wonderful array of memories of my baby girls tied up in it!!! I just love that about quilts!!!

Oh, and one last picture that I just had to share. Obviously this picture didn't make the "photo shoot" finals list, but how cute is Jocelyn with her hand reaching out and her toes pointed up :) What a cutie pie she was, and still is today. I think she will always be my baby girl, no matter how old she gets!!
