vintage flowers

I was digging through my sewing cabinet the other day and I came across this baby quilt that I made over a year ago.  I can't believe I forgot about it!  It was one of those projects that you sew just to sew.  No specific purpose for it.  Just because you enjoy it.  I guess it is about time I get around to sharing it with you.

I have had a stack of Dream On by Moda charm packs for such a long time, and I remember thinking that it was about time I used them.  Such a soft, delicate line.  I loved making this pattern, it is well written and makes good use of a couple charm packs.  I would definitely make this quilt again!  Perfect way to use those charm packs you have laying around.

This quilt has been listed here in my Etsy shopSold, thank you! It has been empty for too long now, it is time to get back to work.  I've even accepted a couple custom orders again, can you believe it?  I think it is safe to say that I've caught the quilting bug again.  That makes me terribly happy. :) 
 
Hope you are well!  xo, A
