Charming Baby Quilts Remix - To the Moon

 Another Friday and another Charming Baby Remix!!!  This is quilt 6 of my Charming Baby Quilts Remix's and I am so excited to share it.  I am hoping to get all 10 shared by the end of the year!!!!   And here it is . . . the To the Moon Remix quilt!!!!

Isn't this just so fun!!!!  This is probably the most "novelty" design in the book, and I really was going for less of a baby feel with it ;)   I remixed the original design by simply adding more blocks to make it a large lap quilt, perfect for tweens wanting to curl up with their favorite story.   This To the Moon remix quilt finishes at 60" x 84".      And it just the exact same to piece as the original, just more blocks :)  (Pattern Adjustment's here)  




And speaking of the original, here is my To the Moon quilt from Charming Baby Quilts.   This is such a great baby quilt and these little rockets are just so fun blasting off.   It will just be great in whatever size you make it, perfect for the space enthusiast in your life!!!



For this To the Moon remix, I used 4 Golden Hour Charm Packs by Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society.   I just love it and really think this fabric was perfect for giving it that more Tween to Teen feel!!!!   And I love the Speckled Metallic Basic background and binding!!!   I used Soft Blue for the background and Navy for the binding and I just love how all of those metallic speckles just make it look as if these rockets were in outer space.  So great!!! All of these  amazing fabrics arrive this month in shops, so keep an eye out for them :)  


And when it came time to quilt it, I decided I on all over fireworks.  I just kept thinking 3, 2, 1, Lift Off while I was quilting away ;)   I think it was a great pairing for this outer space quilt.   And can I just say, I am still totally loving the new Long Arm!!!  This is a design that I totally would have timed out the old machine and gone beyond the stitch regulator, but the new Infinity had no trouble keeping up :)  I just so love that!!!  


And now they could totally just be shooting stars or asteroid fields, or whatever other fun bursts happen in space!!!   And I love that it only continued to add to the whole tween feel I was going for.   Even my 14th year old said "cool mom" which is a lot coming from a 14 year old boy :)


So do you want to make your own Charming Baby Remix To the Moon quilt??  Just download this free  PDF To the Moon 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 To the Moon Remix quilt!!!  I hope you love it just as much as I do and want to make one of your own, either in the large lap size or baby size ;)  And if you do,  I would love to see it!!  You can email me a picture at happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com or post it to social media with the hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and/or #charmingbabyquilts ;)  I can't wait to see your To the Moon Quilts!!!
