Charm Pack Cherry Love

When I saw all the examples from other bloggers who were making this quilt, I knew I wanted to make one, too.  It definitely helped that Fat Quarter Shop was having a sale on their charm packs at the same time!  It wasn't long before my Moda Bella White and Color Me Happy charm packs came in the mail, and I got to work.  I  just love the result.  L.OV.E it!

I love the blues and greens with little touches of pink and gray that this fabric line has.  It gives the quilt such a fresh, clean look.  It's the first time I've worked with so much white, and I love that about this quilt, too.

I can't decide which fabric is my favorite.  There are many fun ones to look at up close:

For the backing and binding, I found a pretty navy blue with green polka dots at my local Hobby Lobby.  Can't wait to get back to work on it this coming weekend when it will be Spring Break!

Signs of Spring

Seen today in my garden:

 Crocuses!  Spring is on its way!

I've just been sewing in little bits and pieces recently.  A couple more Granny Square blocks...

This one might be my favorite:
I also started on a Charm Pack Cherry quilt.  I'm making it out of Moda's Bella White and Color Me Happy by V and Company, also for Moda.  And it is going to be a happy quilt, for sure!  So far, I just have the basic solid and print charms sewn together in groups of three.  Next step, make the nine patches and cut them up again!

There are lots of happy fabrics in this line:

I love those polka dots!  Looking forward to some more time to work on all my WiPs this weekend!
