Darling little Dickens meets Bambi

I bought a charm pack called Darling Little Dickens from Gails Patchwork Emporium in January, along with a mint green fabric.
I was on a mission to make a quick, cute cot quilt for DH cousin who had baby daughter #2.  Bub was early and we were going back to visit family in the same town in a matter of weeks, so I wanted to perform miracles.
 
The miracle of me staying focused on one project!
I decided (with advice from Lisa and Mum) that mint green sashing was not going to work.  But good old white (from the stash) looks perfect.
Accompanied by a few left over charm squares cut down for cornerstones.  

 The mint worked better as a border.
I managed a fancy quilting pattern on the border - with my walking foot.  There was enough mint green fabric to bind the quilt.  
One cute, quick baby quilt - made and delivered within a month!
 Happy quilting Sue.
