wee woodland baby quilt

I finished up this simple charm squares quilt a few weeks ago.

And while it may seem like the whole rounded corners thing is something I should start attending meetings for, let me assure you: you're right.

The same is probably true for straight line quilting. For this little quilt I used a simple grid pattern that looks extra awesome on the light back with a darker teal quilting thread.

I picked up two charm packs of Wee Woodland by Keiki last summer in Summer 2010 in Shipshewana, IN. I pretty immediately sewed the top together, and then stuck it up on my design wall. Where it sat. Forever.

And then one day I was spray basting and found the quilt top folded over a hanger in my fabric closet. I thought, "what the heck," and pieced together the quilt back using one subtle print from the collection, a bit of solid, and a few straggling charm squares that didn't make it onto the front.

Overall, this quilt whipped up in a jif (despite the fact that it took me nearly two years to finish it!). I love the extra bit of fancy that the rounded corners add, plus it's a good excuse to stay sharp on the finer points of making continuous bias binding.
