It's time for a new Challenge. The Charm Pack Challenge!
First of all, what the heck is a Charm Pack? Most of us have, use and love charm packs, but here's what they are:
A Charm is a 5" x 5" square of fabric. Depending on the fabric company, each Charm Pack normally contains at least one of each print in the collection. Most packs have around forty-two pieces, which means there can be duplicates and even triplicates of some prints. Charm squares are great for easy patchwork quilts.
THEME: Make it with a Charm Pack! Make a quilt or quilted item using the pieces from a Charm Pack.
DIRECTIONS: Use at least one modern charm pack to create your project. The square can be whole or cut up, use your creativity to transform them, into a unique and interesting design.
FABRIC AND PALETTE: Use at least one Charm Pack of your choice.
QUILT SIZE: There is no size restriction. Keep in mind that an average Charm Pack with 42 squares will create a quilt that is 27 x 31-½ inches.
Here's a hint, a Layer Cake is 10" x 10" square, buy a Layer Cake, slice it in quarters and you have four ready-made Charm Packs!
