After seeing Just Another Button Company’s Growth Chart Pins and Nancy Halvorsen’s Curiosities and Mischief collections, I knew I had to make the growth chart for my granddaughter, Sydney! This is one of the fastest and most fun projects I have ever worked on.
Growth Chart ingredients:

5) 1 1/3 yards backing fabric
6) Growth Chart Pins for Boys – #gcboy
Following Nancy’s instructions in her Curiosities & Mischief book, trimming the panel was super easy; it even has metric measurements!
Next, I added the borders and then I used fusible web to attach Sydney’s name!
Then, make the two tabs for hanging.
For the batting I used Warm and Natural Batting and did simple “stitch in the ditch” quilting.
I added the stripe binding which is already printed on the bias, so again, super easy!
The final touch, are the pins! So cute!!!!
Another option is to sew a label to the backing where the measurements can be written and dated with a quilting pen.
One last thing, you can even use the easy ordering information on page 26 for the “I’m This Big” hanger which comes in copper or silver.
