It's the fourth week of making blocks for the Charming Baby Sew Along and I am just loving seeing all of your amazing blocks!!!  This weeks assignment is a great one, but probably the most piecing we have done in a week so far, so don't leave it to the very end.   You will need your copy of Charming Baby Quilts  for the piecing instructions as well as the Week 4 Charming Baby Sew Along Pattern for cutting instructions ;)  This week we will be making blocks from the Ring Around the Rosie quilt and the Shine Bright quilt!!!

First up, Ring Around the Rosie!!   I just love this quilt!!!  And it really isn't as hard as it looks, just some stitch and flip fun ;)    The quilt uses 3 Charm Packs and I used Bramble Cottage Charm Packs by Brenda Riddle for Moda Fabrics and a Bella Solid Admiral Blue Background.  I have had so many people email me for what color blue that is, isn't it just so pretty and it goes so perfectly with all of those soft cottage prints!!!  And if you want to make Ring Around the Rosies with the same fabrics I used, Fat Quarter Shop has a Ring Around the Rosie Quilt Kit and Backing Set all ready to go ;)    Ring Around the Rosie finishes at 54" x 54" so it is a great size for growing into :)

And for our Sew Along, we will be making 4 Ring Around the Rosie blocks and sewing them together with a bit of sashing.    These blocks will become the four corners of the quilt and set it off nicely ;)  Isn't that just so fun!!!  Use the Ring Around the Rosie piecing directions from the book and the Week 4 Pattern  for cutting directions to make your blocks.

And next up, the Shine Bright quilt!!!  You all know how much I love making star quilts, so of course, there had to be some in Charming Baby Quilts ;)  And this is just such a fun scrappy star!!!   The quilt uses 3 Charm Packs and I used Flower Market 5" Stackers by Jen Allyson for Riley Blake Designs and a Confetti Cotton's Off White Background. This quilt really does just shine ;)     Shine Bright  finishes at 56" x 56" so again, it will be perfect for dragging around the house as your wee one grows and uses it as their favorite friend ;) 

And for our Sew Along, we will be making 2 Shine Bright blocks.   Use the Shine Bright piecing directions from the book and the Week 4 Pattern  for cutting directions to make your blocks.  These blocks will be the center of the top and bottom rows and they are a great focal point.   


And just like that, you are done with Week 4 and looking forward to next week of The Charming Baby Sew Along!!  You are all doing so great!!!!   Be sure to pop over to all my Sewing Along Friends and see their Week 4 blocks for lots of inspiration!!

  1. I just received your book Charming Baby Quilts in the mail today. Mail was slow so I missed Pat Sloan's sewalong but I can't wait to dig into this gem! Loved your Irish Chain and this book doesn't disappoint. Love the controlled scrappy looks of your designs. Thank you.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
