I love buying charm packs because they have bits of a whole collection. But I always end up sticking them in a drawer and forget to use them. When I found Ruby by Bonnie and Camille again, I knew I'd feel guilty for cutting it up. So I bordered it with 2 inch sashing and Ta Dots for the corners to gain some size and made four to a block. Then sashed those blocks too. I will always love aqua and red, it's so cheery.This is couch size, as all my kids are older and no one is stuck in a crib. So it is perfect for curling under and reading a book or just for a snooze.

 I went for quilting in chevrons, not in any order nor even. In a pale aqua thread.

Quilt Con

Yup that's me in the second and third row of a quilt being made for the Austin Children's Shelter. It's no winning block for the Modern Quilt Guild Quilt Con Raffle Quilt but seeing this is way okay.
