These have been sitting around in a poly-bag for far too long, all trimmed and ready to go, so I finally got up the enthusiasm (and floor space!) to lay out, join and quilt them:This is the final layout I decided on – a randomly mixed variant really wasn’t working for me. Annoyingly, I found that I had two pink blocks too many and not enough greens, so I ended up remaking those two with a left-over blue charm square (thank goodness I saved the “spare” two) and reshuffled things a little so the colours flowed better.
I added borders of yellow polka-dots, and backed it with the same:I still don’t know what I think of these charm squares – they’re quite strange shades, really. Very hard to match with anything. But I’m very pleased I struck on this arrangement, it should be cute enough for a little girl. 🙂 Right now I’m most of the way through straight-line quilting it with some multicoloured variegated thread in similar soft colours and it’s looking really good! More stuff to add to my “needs binding!” pile. 😉
