I found this gorgeous momo 'oh deer!' charm pack that I had and some plain moda fabrics.... so I thought I'd do something quick n easy. So I picked out the pink/blue/purple tones (i've saved the oranges/greens/yellows for another project) and laid them all out until I found a pattern I liked.
Then I sewed them up into a 4 patch square
Using a 1/4 inch seam of course!
So my idea was to have two patterned against 2 plain....
Then I had a jelly roll left over from my last quilt top...so figured I could do a quick and easy lattice border!
I just love the deer print! So into stags right now. So once I'd sewn all the above pieces together in rows... it's a good idea to square your squares up before sewing them together!
The next step is to join your vertical rows together and to do this you need to make sure you line up your squares.... I mark the edges of the lattice then pin, pin, pin so that it stays in place through the machine.
Then voila! A quick n easy quilt project!
What do you think?
I wanted to then turn it into a lap quilt... so I ordered another oh deer pack... as I didn't have enough of these tones left in the charm pack. I'm hoping to finish it off tomorrow and have a quilting Saturday.
I have the quilt for my Mam to finish for Christmas... the christmas table runners and also another top secret project I'm working on! My wadding arrived tonight. I'd like to get these done this year so I can actually wrap them and have them under the tree!!
