My daughter's friend has always asked how much she would have to pay to buy one of my quilts. I really didn't want her to pay me so I decided to make a quilt just for her for her upcoming graduation from college. I saw that the Fat Quarter Shop had a new pattern out called Charm Pack Cherry Quilt.
I thought this pattern would be perfect and fun to make. I involved my daughter in the whole process.
She's not a quilter but I'm hoping I can still make a quilter out of her!
We chose a charm pack together. We decided on Chantilly by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda Fabrics. It had all the colors my daughter thought her friend would like. We changed the pattern a tiny bit. The pattern uses one solid but we chose multiple colors for the solid squares in the pattern.
It was quite easy to sew together. There was minimal cutting since we used charm packs for the solid as well as the print. My daughter put all the blocks together according to the pattern and I sewed everything together. When it came time to cutting, I cut everything and she put the new blocks together according to whatever color combinations she liked. It was a good partnership.
Here's the quilt without the border:
