What can I say?  I had a craving for nice and simple squares in a rainbow of colour.  I cut piles and piles of squares at 4.5" each from my stash and scraps.  Backed with flannel and machine quilted in straight lines, both of these are so cuddly and such a bright shot of joy.   These are now for sale in my Etsy shop.
I had to share some Instagram pictures, as my little son joined me one day when I began these quilts and sweetly drew his own charm quilt designs in my notebook, and then helped be a quilt "holder" with his bigger brother so I could share my work in progress on Instagram.

QUILT STATS:
Fabrics: 4.5" squares from my stash and scraps
Batting: Warm & Natural
Backing: Riley Blake flannel
Binding: Scrappy (quilt 1) and Navy Oval Elements (quilt 2)
Thread: Aurifil 50 wt for piecing and quilting
Dimensions: 38" by 50" (quilt 1) and 38" by 38" (quilt 2)

  4. Sometimes simple and cheerful is just perfect. (We know you can do amazingly complicated designs with style too, but it is ok to mix it up a bit with fun and easy.) They are beautiful.
    I am impressed by your helpful little quilt holders.
