Another Friday and another Charming Baby Remix!!! This is quilt 4 of my Charming Baby Quilts Remix's and I am so excited to share it because I did a black background!!!!! I don't do black backgrounds very often, but I sure love them when I do ;) Here it is the Hugs and Kisse Remix quilt!!!!
Isn't this just so great!!!! I just love, love, love how all of those happy bright colors just pop on the black ;) I remixed the original design by adding more blocks and rows and of course, switching out to a dark background. So fun :) This Hugs and Kisses remix quilt finishes at 69 1/2" x 69 1/2" so it is perfect for snuggling up in and would make an amazing gift to anyone you wanted to send some Hugs and Kisses to :) And It is just as easy to piece as the original, it's basically just making a few more blocks :) (Pattern Adjustment's here)
And speaking of the original, here is my Hugs and Kisses quilt from Charming Baby Quilts
. This is such a great baby quilt, and can easily be made all boy or all girl depending on who you are making it for. It will just be so great in whatever size or color you make it!!!
For this Hugs and Kisses remix, I used 4 Charm Packs and another twist in that I used 4 different charm packs by 4 different designers. I really wanted to show that you don't always have to use the same fabric as you can mix and match fabrics for a super scrappy and happy look!!!! So I grabbed 4 Charm Packs from my stash :) I used Garden Variety by Lella Boutique, Strawberry Jam by Corey Yoder, Mama's Cottage by April Rosenthal and Handmade by Bonnie and Camille.
And isn't it just so wonderful how all those happy bright colors just play so nice together and pop on that dark background!!!! This remix uses 4 Charm packs and 4 yards of background fabric. And it so fun to make, I just smiled the entire time I was working on it :)
And when it came time to quilt it, I decided I wanted to go a little crazy and super dense quilt the background and leave the blocks unquilted so they popped all the more. And nothing says Dense like pebbles :) And yes, they took a little while, although they went faster than they normally would as this was the first quilt on the new Long Arm
and it is fast :)
And it worked out just like I had hoped!!! So much quilty goodness in the background and those X's and O's just pop so well :) I normally wouldn't leave such big areas unquilted, but this quilt will basically be for my Charming Baby Quilts Trunk Show for some time, so I am okay with it as it isn't going to be "used" just yet :) And I sure do love the look!!!
