Chocolate Covered Raspberries

My daughter’s preschool is having a silent auction, and I volunteered to make a baby quilt.  I love baby quilts, because they are quick to make and oh so satisfying.

I chose 2 charm packs of Sultry by Basic Grey for Moda and set them 8 x 10.

No matter how many quilts I do and new styles I try, I absolutely love the simplicity of the 5 inch squares.  It’s probably quiltmaking at its simplest, but I’m so drawn to these quilts.

The post wash measurements are 33 x 42.

The back of the quilt is white muslin, and I quilted with Sulky Blendables Vintage Rose (#4030) thread.

    Thanks Jen! When this fabric line first came out I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure about it. Seeing it on the computer definitely doesn’t do it justice!!!! I absolutely adore the fabrics now, and I just wish I had bought more charm packs…gotta love those charm packs!!!! 😉

    Jen-I accidentally deleted your comment…sorry!!!

    Jen’s reposted comment: Love it! I made one almost EXACTLY the same for my daughter! My first quilt that I made, actually! I love the Sultry fabrics!

    no problem!

    Yeah, that the problem with this fabric….pictures truly don’t ever do it justice! The fabric is one of the most beautiful lines I’ve ever seen! And I think the patchwork quilts made with this are so beautiful because they showcase all the fabrics! What a gorgeous quilt!
