Hopping Blogs!

I’m excited to do some Blog Hop Show and Tell today!  It’s finally my turn to reveal the project I made using Happy Hour Stitches Lindsay Mayland’s free Charming Mini Pattern!  As you can see, I made a little doll quilt for Stella, (a charming mini herself) and she is delighted!  Didn’t that work out well? 🙂

I used a couple bundles of Moda Mini Charms; Lydia Nelson’s “Darling little Dickens” which has sweet little animal faces and characters, and Sherri & Chelsi’s “Bright Sun” for added contrast.  I also wanted to make the quilt just a little wider, adding a half-drop block to alternating ends of each row.  This also staggered the seam allowances, so there were no seams to match as I was sewing the rows together.  BONUS!!

14 1/2″ x 15 1/2″

The half-drop blocks were the perfect size to show off these bunnies from Elizabeth Hartman’s “Paintbox Basics” in a few different color-ways.

Every garden needs a couple bunnies!

Obviously this is a very versatile pattern, and I know you will want to check out the other participant’s projects:
