I bought this cute charm pack and made a stroller quilt for my grandbaby.  I backed it with pink chenille.  It has rickrack around the edge.  No need to add batting because of the chenille.  I still quilted it diagonally.  Easy, peasy!

I like the charms.  Did you find the Chenilee difficult because its stretchy?

That is so cute!  I have done some quilting of dog blankets with stretchy and semi-stretchy and the stretchy stuff is more forgiving then one would imagine. I just pin the heck out of it first too.  Yours is so smooth..did you pin or maybe basteing spray?  I have some some where but it seems to preciouse to use on dog quilts. It will be nice to have lighter weight baby guilts this time of year too.  Wonderful job!

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Thanks everyone,  chenille isn't stretchy. It's the fabric they used to make bedspreads out of.
