Faye requested a small quilt for her fur baby Aoife (an Irish name, pronounced EE-fa).
My mind went right to the charm pack and additional yardage I had of Sherbet Pips, with the adorable little doggies on it. I cut the quilt out before we moved in July and then life happened.
Last week, I went to an open sew day at one of my new LQSs, Cherry Tree Quilts and pieced the top:
It's very quick to do - (40) 5" charms plus (8) 9½" squares of coordinating fabric.
Quilting was very simple too - just diagonal lines. I used a Hera marker to mark the lines.
Very happy with the now-washed, nicely soft and crinkly finished product:
It's about 36" square, and it's bound (by machine) with more Sherbet Pips and a tiny bit of Little Apples.
Bonus pillow made with the leftovers:
Other Front (they're both cute!!)
Again, really simple. 5" squares plus one 9½" square. I think I'll donate it to the school's fundraiser.
