Charming Baby Quilts Remix - Shine Bright!!!

I am so excited!!!  Today is the day :)  I have been sharing bits and pieces of my Charming Baby Quilts Remix ideas, sketches, and progress, and now I get to share the first finished remixed quilt . . . . and here it is the Shine Bright Remix quilt!!!!

Isn't this just so pretty!!!!  I just love how it turned out ;)   I remixed the original design by adding more blocks and making it twin size.  This Shine Bright remix quilt finishes at 74" x 92" so it is perfect for fitting on a bed or having a really nice large lap blanket to snuggle up in.    And It is just as easy to piece as the original, just make more blocks and add more sashing.  (Pattern Adjustment's here ;)  

And speaking of the original, here is my Shine Bright quilt from Charming Baby Quilts.   This is such a great star quilt and I just love how fun it is in whatever size you make it!!!

For this Shine Bright remix, I used Poppie Cotton's new Woodland Songbirds fabric and I just love how beautiful and soft these prints and colors are.   This remix uses 6 Charm packs and 4 yards of background fabric.   And it really goes together fast and makes such a pretty finish!!!

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided I liked the quilting on the original Shine Bright so much that I wanted to make this one match :)  So all over Curly Q's it was.   I just love how all of that swirly goodness adds so much texture and movement to this quilt!!!

I mean, how can you not love that quilty texture!!!  Doesn't it just make you want to curl up in it with a good book ;)    And now I want to make this size again but make the background dark and the patchwork light.  Wouldn't that be fun.   A great way to use up some low volume charms as well ;)  

So do you want to make your own Charming Baby Remix Shine Bright quilt??  Just download this free  PDF Shine Bright Remix Instructions  document.  You will need a copy of my Charming Baby Quilts book to make the Remix as the download just includes the alternations and not the complete instructions.  You use the book and the download together ;)

And that is my Shine Bright Remix quilt!!!  I hope you love it just as much as I do and want to make one of your own, either in the twin or baby size ;)  And if you do,  I would love to see it!!  You can email me a picture at or post it to social media with the hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and/or #charmingbabyquilts ;)  I can't wait to see your Shine Bright Quilts!!!

And for easy reference. . . This Shine Bright Charming Baby Quilt has been added to my Charming Baby Quilts, All the Quilts, All the Details post ;)  It's a great place to bookmark to see everything Charming Baby Quilts all in one place!!
