A Taste of Marmalade

A Taste of Marmalade is a baby quilt, quite simple in construction, yet a delightful little finish. The pattern is Storytime Squares, designed by Rae Hoekstra of made by RAEI first used this pattern when I made a version for 100 Quilts for kids last fall.
Storytime Squares for 100 Quilts for Kids
For this new quilt, I was thrilled to find some marmalade charm packs out in blogland, as baby's mama had indicated she loved the fabric when I pinned it on Pinterest. 

The quilt finished at 42" square, a tad smaller than the original, as I used 5" charm squares, rather than the 5 1/2" blocks the pattern suggests. For quilting, I used my machine's wavy stitch, stretched out as wide and long as it would go.
Backing is an overall floral that coordinates nicely, and the binding a tiny blue and white dot, both courtesy of Ruby.
So cross off project #2 from my Third-Quarter Finish-A-Long list!

Linking up with TNT Thursday.

  9. Beautiful! Love the fabrics and the quilting gives such a great texture! My machine only seems to do very strange stitches that are good for nothing!!
