Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along - Week 5 - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Charming Baby Quilts Sew Along – Week 5

We’re on week 5 of the Charming Baby Sew Along for the Charming Baby Quilts Book by Melissa Corry and It’s Sew Emma! Are you keeping up with us? The book brings 10 original baby quilts to life, featuring the classic 5″ square charm pack precut. Each design uses one, two or three charm packs, making this an essential book to have on hand for gifts and celebrations.

We’ve been sewing two blocks every Wednesday from April 8 to May 13. We have some friends sewing along with us who are showing off their blocks each week and giving away prizes along the way!

Kimberly sewed her Charming Baby Sampler Quilt in Bonnie At Home fabric collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics.

This week’s To the Moon block is part of the pieced backing. Kimberly added a personalized Sweetwater quilt label to hers. We’ll provide the assembly instructions for the quilt back next week.

We have a great lineup of quilters (including the author, Melissa Corry) sewing along with us! Click on each of the photos to see them up close and see what collections they used as well as tips and tricks they have to make it! Here are some of their blocks:



This Week’s Giveaway

  1. My local quilt shop would like to kit this sampler quilt. Would they be able to do a kit if they included the book in the kit? Would they be able to include the weekly instructions also? Are there any permissions they would need to get, etc?
