Using some Stash!

I love working with charm packs! They are such a time saver for me and I love the fact I do not have to waste fabric. I finally decided to use some of my Ruby stash on this cute little baby quilt. A friend at work found out Friday she was having a little girl and I have been dying to make a sweet little quilt! I am using a pattern I found on Moda bakeshop, it was such a simple quilt to sew together and I love that!
This is the back of the quilt. The pattern I was using showed the flower on the front of the quilt, but I thought It would look better on the back. Ruby is such a great line of fabrics and have several more ideas in mind. I also started my Farmers Wife quilt Sunday and will be using some Ruby on it as well.
I planned to have this little jewel quilted Sunday afternoon, but I was so busy with other things I ran out of time. My new grandson will be making his arrival tomorrow, so not sure how much sewing time I will get in this weekend. His big brother will need looking after. School starts Monday and with 12 hours this semester, plus a full time job....my sewing time will be limited for a few months. Hoping to finish this and make some time for a few blocks each week to finish my Farmer quilt. I am also practicing free motion quilting on my new machine. Looks like I have a really busy year ahead!
What are you working on?
