Sunday Funday Giveaway – Bluebird Park Charm Pack

This week was a busy, busy week. After a few late nights cutting fabric and piecing, I finished the top for a whimsical baby quilt. Are you ready for this revelation? This was the first time that I ever used pre-cut quilting fabric. I’m being won over. Not having to cut over half the squares definitely cut down on the time required to put the quilt together.

I used a charm pack of Moda’s newly released Bluebird Park fabric, which is adorable. I’m telling you, it was really hard to only use one charm pack to make the quilt and to save the other one to give away. But, I stuck to my original plan of using Bluebird Park and mixing in some other filler fabrics. Check out the cute bunnies and hedgehogs. I love the textured linen look of the background too.

So, what is the giveaway? Well, you’ll win a charm pack of the Moda Bluebird Park fabrics. I’m also going to send you charms that I cut from the filler fabrics that I used, so you can replicate this take on the pattern or have enough complementary squares to get started on your own charm project. You’ll just need to pick some sashing, binding, and backing.

And, the pattern? Gotcha covered there too. I used the Storytime Squares pattern posted at Made By Rae. The free pattern is available as a downloadable PDF. If you follow it with a charm pack, just make your sashing a tad narrowed since you’re working with 5 inch squares instead of the 5.5 inch squares that pattern called for.

  1. Pretty baby quilt. I have two nieces that are pregnant so I need some baby quilt patterns; thanks for the link & thanks for the chance to win.

  2. A convert to pre-cuts, eh? Me, too. Whenever I need to make a quilt in a hurry, that’s what I gravitate toward. Just saves time, and you end up with a great finish. Nice job!

  3. Some mother and baby will love this quilt! I was also slow to jump on the pre-cut bandwagon. But now there are so many wonderful fabric lines that pre-cuts are a great way to get lots of different fabrics without breaking the bank. Bluebird Park is one of many new lines that I just love. Thanks for the chance to win!

  4. What a cute quilt. I will hopefully be making one for my new nephew/niece next month and this looks like a great design to use. Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. Ohh, lucky baby! I love the colors and patterns in the Bluebird Park collection, and I Iove the way you put this together. It keeps the eye moving. Thanks so much for the inspiration, and for the chance to win some fabric! I’m so glad that I discovered your blog as a result of Julie’s hop. I’m an English teacher too. I should be grading papers right of instead of blog hopping. šŸ™‚

  6. Cute fabrics used in your quilt. I really love the little hedgehogs you added. They are just too cute. All the different colors are fun.

  7. I love Bluebird Park, such a sweet collection! I have a friend who just had a baby, and this fabric is just her style. I’d use it for a blanket for the little baby.

  8. I’m a newbie and precuts are great while I am learning techniques! I can focus on my piecing rather than my cutting for now!

Whatcha' thinking? I enjoy hearing from my blog readers. Thanks for taking a few minutes to visit today.
