I have more charms left from my Bungle Jungle charm pack (by Moda), and I’ve been thinking about incorporating white into a scrappy-look baby quilt. I think it would be bright and cheerful. So I fired up my EQ7 (Electric Quilt Vsn 7) to see what I could come up with. I love my EQ7 software–it makes it so easy to draft patterns and try different variations, and I can even upload specific fabric (like the Bungle Jungle) into the program to see what it might look like in the project. And it tells me how much fabric I need.
Here are some of the potential quilt ideas printed out and sitting on my design wall. Where do I begin? So many quilts, so little time!!! 🙂
I don’t have enough charms left for the first one, not enough of the same color charms for the other two, and I’ve already done the two smaller ones, so I think the last one–a three-log rail with sashing will do nicely. I might need to buy some more white fabric.
Cut all the “logs” out of my charm pack pieces and the white Moda fabric and pieced them together Aren’t they cute? I just love the Bungle Jungle line.
Chain piecing the extra log onto each end…. I don’t’ know about you, but I have to put them back row-by-row on my design wall or I can so easily get them mixed up!!
I’ve added the sashing between the rows, but now I’m waiting for more white fabric to finish the final outside border, and then I can do the quilting and binding to finish. I’m not sure if I’ll do straight stitching to give it a more modern look, or put it on my mid-arm to do a circular pattern.
To be continued…
