Lately, I have been thinking about pre-cut fabric charm squares. What to make with them and how fun it is to get a small sampling of an entire fabric collection. I have some ideas for new quilts swirling in my mind, but it has been awhile since I really concentrated on getting some finishes, so first I am going to get this baby quilt quilted. This is the small version from my charm square quilt, Flying Kites. The pattern is available in my pattern shop and on Craftsy to download. This pattern is a great way to stretch just one charm pack into a usable size quilt. I love how it shows off the prints in the squares and has strong secondary patterns.
So, we are basted, and I even quilted a couple of rows just using straight and angled lines. It’s nice to have a quilting project to work on during breaks in piecing!
And, to go along with my musings on charm squares, I have a little give away for you! I chose this 5″ square pack of prints from Andover, with basic geometric prints in tan, black, green and blue, plus two fat quarters of coordinating basics to go with it.
If you would like to make something with this fun little bundle, just leave me a comment on this post. I will choose a winner on Sunday, December 7.
In your comment, I would like to know what you think about pre-cuts (any size). Do you buy them? Do you like patterns that offer options for using pre-cuts?
My personal favorite when it comes to pre-cuts in the fat eighth bundle. It is a great amount of fabric for a medium size or large quilt without a ton of leftover. I am so happy that so many online fabric shops offer fat eighth bundles for fabric collections that don’t come that way from the manufacturers.
Happy Wednesday! Linking up with Lee for work in progress
