Since Melissa Corry’s new book came out we’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Charming Baby Sew Along! Charming Baby Quilts 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.
Starting Wednesday, April 8, 2020, we’ll be sewing two block patterns a week for six weeks. The quilt we’re making uses a sampling of blocks from the book, and all together they make a beautiful twin-sized quilt. We have some friends sewing along with us who will be showing off their blocks each week and giving prizes along the way!
Kimberly sewed hers up with the Bonnie At Home fabric collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics. Green and red give it a real festive look!
A star, arrows and flowers are just a few of the blocks making an appearance.
In the center of the pieced back, the rocket ship from To the Moon Quilt makes a nice landing place for a personalized quilt label.

We’re starting the Charming Baby Sew Along on Wednesday, April 8, and we have a fun lineup of quilters who will be sewing along with us during the event! We hope you join us! Each week, one of the quilters sewing along with us will offer a special prize – two Charm Packs and a coordinating spool of Aurifil Thread.
