Kayla’s Weekend Charmer

Kayla brought a quilt top for me to quilt for her.  It’s a cutie and it’s simple and easy…it’s one of Kayla’s designs.

She did it as a free pattern on her blog with instructions broken up into three different days.  You can find the instructions by following the links.

Day One:  Cutting
Day Two: Sewing a block together
Day Three:  Assembling the top

It’s made with 50 5″ charm squares along with a little extra yardage…perfect for a quick baby quilt!

I ended up using a favorite quilt design and some pastel variegated thread.

All in all it’s a great little quick and easy baby quilt.  I want to try this out only make it bigger.  It would be a great scrap buster!!

As shown here it finishes at about 40″ x 40″.  I think Kayla named it appropriately as it truly can be made in a weekend, made with charm squares and is charming…and that’s Weekend Charmer.

I’ll add this to the free pattern section in case you want to find it again.

Today I am hooking up with Michelle’s Romantic Tangle,  Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.

What Quilt is on Your Bed??

It’s getting colder here…and I am determined to not turn on the heat yet.  That means we needed another quilt on the bed.

I had this one on….It’s my Odds and Ends quilt…one of my favorites.

But it’s time to cover that one up and add another quilt.  I debated on Labor Day Madness from Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth and Charlene Thode. ….It’s one of my favorites…EVER!  Ruby found me, jumped up on the bed and started “modeling”.  What a dog!!

But then ended up with my HUGE Easy Street.  This quilt is a giant.  Now if Hubby pulls the covers (or truth be told, I pull the covers) the other one of us will still have plenty of blankets.

See how long it comes down??

It’s that long on both sides…

This one won out as I’ve always wanted to have seasonal quilts on my beds….this one is screaming FALL…don’t you think?

So what’s on your bed??  If you have a blog, link up and show us.  If you don’t, leave a link to your Flickr page or simply tell us!  You can always email me a photo too…I’ll add  it to the post.
