An Out of this World Finish

I knew that If I focused on some finishes, I could quickly cross a number of items off my list!
Today's finish is Out of this World!



 This project started out with two Lily & Loom Space Camp charm squares.  These are one of the Craftsy fabric lines and I like to ensure that the quality is nice if I am going to be an affiliate.  
I like to use the products I promote!

I can say this fabric is really nice.  There was almost no lint or fraying as I assembled the quilt and the colors in the fabric are bright and well printed.




I pulled some Kona Navy and Coal to go with the fabrics.  I used Cheryl Brickey's Building Blocks pattern (Moda Bakeshop) as inspiration.  Mine looks a little different but 2 charm squares works perfectly for this layout (with the ability to toss a few out).




The space themed prints in this collection are so much fun.  Perfect for that special future astronaut!




I should have ordered some backing fabric from the same collection but you know I can't wait to get things quilted up and finished once a top is complete.  So I pulled a Kaffe Collective piece that was already in my stash.



 The finished quilt measures about 49" x 54".  And it is cute, cute, cute!

So I was really pleased with the quality of the fabric and the prints included in the collection are adorable.  If you want to make one for yourself, I see this collection is already on clearance as Craftsy releases new ones quite often.


I should also say, I tested out Craftsy's new Pima Cotton thread and I have to say it ran really nicely through my machine.  I have already almost used up an entire spool!

What a fun finish! I love the way the navy and gray solid frames the prints! The backing looks like it worked just fine, too. Someone's going to love this one!

What a fun print collection and great design for showing them off. The backing coordinates really well and hooray for crossing finishes off your list!

That is such a cute quilt. The fabric looks lovely and so appropriate for future astronauts! The backing is perfect, too. Thanks for sharing and telling where we can get the pattern. I have a couple packs of charm squares that would work perfectly for that pattern. Nadine Willis

Sweet quilt! I really like the way the gray and navy play against the brighter colors in the space fabric line. Very fun! I'm off to go download that nice pattern :)

It's a very fun quilt. It's nice to hear how about the Craftsy fabric, I've not ordered any yet, though I've been sorely tempted.

What a great use of charms! I love the solids you chose to go with the collection. I have a pile of 4.5" squares needing a project, this would be perfect. Thanks for the inspiration.

It's so cute! The swirls on the back give a lot of interest since there are so many straight lines on the front. It's darling!
