more baby quilts

quick post today. went to the LQS where I teach and picked up some fabric for a shop sample. I was so please with the results of the baby quilt I made (see last post) that I decided this would be a great class to teach. Marybeth (the owner) is very flexible and lets me get creative with her materials . She has a bunch of the pamper pooch charms that weren't selling and I thought I could help that along.
I picked up a charm pack and some yardage and will be assembling soon. Haven't decided if I'm gonna do mock binding on this one yet. Some quilters do not like mock binding, I disagree. This type of binding is great for quick quilts. It still has the look of REAL binding and just as functional.
Baby Emma's momma received the quilt I made and is very pleased with it. Now Im told that Emma's auntie is pregnant too! Looks like I will be putting that Sock Monkey charm pack to good use!

Im not sure sure if I will be using the same yardage as the pampered pooch charm pack but they do look good together!
My next article for NinePatchNews will be on last minute xmas gifties. I will have lots of links and instructions. I will repost to my blog once I get it done. It will be a great way to recycle linens, scraps, clothes into useful items around the house.
Keep On Stitch'n On!
