Back today with a quick recent finish. I was happy to work with my friends at the Fat Quarter Shop to make their most recent (free) Short Cuts pattern, the Charm Box Quilt. I made mine using Rashida Coleman-Hale's new line for Cotton & Steel, Mochi.
This was really a quick, fun, and easy quilt to make. It uses 2 charm packs, plus less than a yard of a background fabric. The quilt finishes at 36" x 45" -- the perfect size for a crib or baby quilt, or even a wall hanging.
I loved working with Rashida's collection. The colors and prints are unique, vibrant, and lots of fun. Most of all, I've fallen in love with the background fabric I chose: Dottie's Cousin in Natural. It's got a linen-y look and feel, but is pure quilting cotton so that it sews beautifully. It's the perfect blender / neutral.
