Hello quilters!   Just a reminder if you haven't seen it yet, my PDQ Club (Free pattern) for June is up on the Henry Glass blog.  Hop on over there and leave a comment so you can win some fabric.  Even if you don't win, it is fun to have a FREE pattern, right?

This time I thought I should do a quilt pattern, since I haven't done one yet.  So far the PDQ Club has had an apron, some boxes, pillows, pincushions,  and a bag.  So it was for sure time for a quilt!

This one is just a simple baby quilt. Since the design is so basic, it is the fabric selection that really makes this quilt shine.  I used pieces from my Beyond the Gate, Meet Me in the Meadow, and Poppy Patio collections in "TALL TALE."

I did hand appliqué, as usual, but to make this project really pdq, you could do raw edge applique and top-stitch 1/8" away from the edge.  That would be fun, don't you think?  If you do your quilt that way, send me a picture!! I would love to see it.

I actually haven't quite finished Tall Tale yet.  You probably noticed that it is not bound, but do not worry, I will get that done right away!  Also, I think I will add a tail to my giraffe using some perle cotton.  Good idea?

Be sure to visit the HG Blog to download the instructions and leave a comment there.  Thanks for stopping by--have a great weekend!
