    Last year I got some charm packs online - I think on ebay - that were stripes and plaids. Got 6 packs - this quilt used 2. The fabric in this quilt came from just about everywhere you can easily get fabric.

    Binding/backing: a David textile from Walmart - on sale last year for $1/yd.

    THe outer border - yardage from Hobby Lobby - but bought for another quilt so from my stashlette.

    Inner border - local quilt shop - but on sale for their red/white/blue sale. See if you can see that the tone on tone is little bare feet prints.

    This was fun to make. I saw one like it on the board somewhere and also learned on here to offset the seams - so some rows start with half a charm.

    I had some backing fabric that was blue with a small floral print that would have looked really cute. I didn't use it so the quilt could be gifted to either a guy or a gal. Then when I was matching thread for this backing the only thread that really matched was .... pink! So ... still don't know if this quilt has a gender or not.

    Very pretty quilt-looks so summery with the white sashing.

    Thank you for posting so much info about your quilts. I've noticed that whenever you post pics, you give the pattern, fabric, etc., and any thoughts you have regarding the project. I find this very informative and helpful if I'm interested in that particular fabric or pattern. I wish everyone posted more info with their pics. Thank you.
    Peace-Jan
