Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along!!!!

I am super excited to share more about my soon to be released Charming Baby Quilts book :)  And today's it's all about the Sew Along ;)

This is the design for the Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along!!!  I designed this quilt as a sampler quilt using a block or a portion of a block from each of the 10 quilts in the Charming Baby Quilts book.   It is a twin size quilt finishing at 66" x 88" and I think it is just so fun and I can't wait to sew along with all of you!!!!

The Sew Along stars in April and you can see Fat Quarter Shop's post about it here ;)   Kimberly, from Fat Quarter Shop, is using Bonnie At Home Charm Packs by Bonnie and Camille for her Charming Baby Quilt and she even shared the finished quilt top on her Live Video Stream today ;)   If you want to see if she shares it at 30:40 time on the video ;) It is so great!!!!  I can't wait to see it all quilted up!!!!

And I am going to make mine using Catalina Charm Packs by Joanna Figueroa from Fig Tree & Co.   And I am actually using a few extra Charm Packs as I didn't want to use the Low Volume prints in the design as I was worried it would blend into the background to much ;)   So something to keep in mind when you get your fabrics!!!

And speaking of getting your fabrics . . . The Fabric Requirements are already posted!!!!   So you can start thinking know about what Charm Packs you want to use.   And of course, you can use more than one fabric line, it would be super cute to mix and match Charm Packs in this design ;)  

This is going to be a super fun and super easy Sew Along to participate in.   So if you are anywhere from a beginner to an expert you are going to love sewing along ;)   And this will also double as my annual Sew Along so I hope you will join in and Sew Along with us!!!!   All the fun starts April 8th, and of course, I will share more details as we get closer to April ;)  

Oh, and one last note.  You will need a Charming Baby Quilts book to Sew Along so just as a reminder . . . the Charming Baby Quilts Book will be released in March of 2020 and it is available for pre-order!!!  You can pre-order a copy of Charming Baby Quilts directly from It's Sew Emma, or from Fat Quarter Shop (with a pre-order discount) , or if you would like to pre-order a signed copy directly from me, that is an option as well ;)   All pre-ordered books will ship out in March 2020 

I am so super excited!!!!  Only two more Months to March ;)   

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!!

  1. So exciting Melissa! Looking forward to your new book and watching the sew along unfold. I might whittle mine down to baby size :), but hope to sew along and try out each of the designs as I go.

    1. Would you be cutting down the size of the 5" sq to say 4 or 3"? CAn Melissa give us alternate to make a smaller version?

    2. Hi Tanvisha, It would be difficult to cut the block sizes down as they are all different sizes based on the design. But you could always just make one of each block and then sew them together as a sampler ;)

  2. I am greatly looking forward to this sew along.

  3. Congrats! Your new book looks great.

  4. Melissa, Congrats on your new book's right up my alley. Always need to make baby quilts...the stork is always delivering!
    Considering the sew along...thank you for the opportunity.

  5. Just happened on your site tonight & wondering if I could join your Charming Baby Quilts Sew-Along? I understand you began on April 8th. As today is April 15th, I think I could catch up w/ your guidance. I would appreciate your response.
