Charming Baby Quilts has Arrived!!!!

This has been a very large Work in Progress and it is now finished and arrived!!!!    Charming Baby Quilts has hit the shelves!!!   So exciting!!!!  My boxes of books arrived last night and I just wanted to hug the delivery man ;)

Charming Baby Quilts is published by Its Sew Emma and is a collection of 10 Baby Quilts that all feature one, two, or three Charm Packs!!  You can mix and match collections, use one fabric line, or even use scrap 5" squares!! 

Charming Baby Quilts is available to order directly from It's Sew Emma, or from Fat Quarter Shop  or if you would like to order a signed copy directly from me, that is an option as well ;)   

The book measures 6 1/2" x 9 1/2", is 50 full colored pages, and has a spiral binding.  And I think that all just adds to the Charm of this book :)  It's just so cute!!!!  

Each of the quilts in Charming Baby Quilts are fun and easy to make.   And because they are smaller projects, they go together super fast!!!   The easy to follow step by step instructions and images make the book perfect for beginners and experts alike.

And Fat Quarter Shop even has some of the quilts from the book made up in quilt kits so you can just whip them up in no time.   There is a Ring Around the Rosie Quilt Kit and Backing Kit as well as a To The Moon Quilt Kit and Backing Kit.

And there will also be A Star is Born Quilt Kit and Backing Kit but it won't be available until the fabric comes out in April ;)  But you can sign up for notification of when it is available, and this one is totally worth the wait ;)  

And I am so excited for the Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along!!!  We will be making this sampler that has blocks from each of the 10 quilts in the Charming Baby Quilts book.    You will need a Charming Baby Quilts book to Sew Along so just as a reminder . . . you can order directly from It's Sew Emma, or from Fat Quarter Shop  or order a signed copy directly from me.

The quilt is a twin size, finishing at 66" x 88".  Here are the Fabric Requirements 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 or even use scrap charm squares ;)  The Charming Baby Sew Along will start on April 8th and I can't wait!! 

And of course, I will be sharing each of the quilts in Charming Baby Quilts over the coming weeks before the Sew Along starts.   I am excited to share some of the details and fun tidbits about each quilt.   I just can't believe it is here ;)  

And I wanted to finish today with this adorable video the amazing folks at It's Sew Emma and Fat Quarter Shop made!!!   It is a Trailer for Charming Baby Quilts, how wonderful is that!!!!

I will be back with more Charming Baby Quilts soon ;)  If you have already Pre-Ordered a copy, thank you so much!!! They will be mailed out today ;)    And if you are wanting to order a copy, again, you can order directly from It's Sew Emma, or from Fat Quarter Shop  or order a signed copy directly from me.

Thanks for popping in today and sharing this wonderful finish with me today :)

I hope you all have a very Happy (and maybe even a little Charming day!!!)
