Wicked Easy Quilt

I haven't actually blogged from blogger in a long time.... I have been using Flickr, but when blogging directly from Flickr, I can only post one photo..... If anyone knows a way to get more than 1 photo up at a time with Flickr, please let me know!

Anyhow, I just finished sewing the binding on this quilt. It's called the Wicked Easy Quilt, and believe me, it is easy. I left out the folded inner border, as I thought the person who was quilting it for me really didn't need that flapping around and in the way. I had a link posted for the pattern, but for some reason, it doesn't work. If you Google "Wicked Easy Quilt" you can find the pattern.

I edited the pictures with Flickr. I'm not sure which one is more true to color.....

Here are a few of the finished blocks. They aren't pressed yet, and the colors did not photograph well, but you get the idea...

I took a picture of the fabric I'll be making a quilt out of. I got the pieces all cut last night... I used 4 of the fat quarters from the stack in back, and all of the pieces of Prince Charming on the table. Maybe I can start sewing tonight!

Central Park

Here's my most recent finished quilt. It's made with 2 charm packs of Moda's Central Park by Kate Spain. I also added a few random purple and yellow squares as well. I quilted on either side of the seams - approximately 1/2 inch from the seam. The backing is a sold yellow-orange. Bound in yellow with white polka dots.
