Charity Challenge – March

ConnextEHQ250Welcome to March’s #ehqcharitychallenge!   Connext was a fun, fast quilt to make.  Per my plan in the last Charity Challenge post, I used a mottled orange fabric from my stash and some white solid.  I used more white for the binding to add a bit more pop!




March’s quilt plan, Regatta, was inspired by a wonderful piece of fabric I received in a fabric swap a while ago.  I wish I had been smart enough to take a picture of the fabric for you before I cut it up.  (Of course, this is the only time during my Charity Challenge that I’ve made the quilt before posting the plan!)  While I doubt I ever would have bought this fabric in a shop, I think it is adorable and I hope will make a child somewhere smile!  The ships were too cute to cut up, so I decided on a strippy layout.  The size of the strips was totally based on the repeat in this particular fabric – so if you’d like to use the idea but your fabric has a different size repeat you have two choices:  change the width of the other strips or let the quilt be bigger or smaller.  As designed, the quilt finishes at 36″ x 48″.  You can get the free pattern download here.


Isn’t this fabric adorable?  It is from the Out to Sea collection by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller from a few years ago. CCLogo200

    You’re right — this isn’t your typical fabric but it’s darling. I’m sure some child with love having it!
