I laid out the pieces in a relatively random fashion and pieced them together into this sweet little quilt:
The quilt got its name from the 5" squares (charms) and the quilting design which was a free-form star motif.
It was a very quick design that I put together in a single weekend. The backing was a lovely pink flannel with letters and shapes (i.e. w for whale, b for ball, etc).
Here's one of the final pictures as I was getting the binding sewn down...
And the finished...err... masterpiece? ;-)
Bad picture, but it shows the embroidery I did on the binding. I've tried a few different ways for labeling quilts and so far my favorite is to just stitch the information right onto the binding before its applied to the quilt. It makes it a bit less obtrusive, but still provides the information of who and when the quilt was made.
Definitely not my best pictures, but it was a fun little quilt to make. The baby loved it and once she grew out of it, she started using it as a blanket for her dolls.
