I wanted to use the Charm Squares from the “Little Bear and Cottontail” fabric line that I bought. The Pink & Blue squares were used in the 4 patches & the square in a square around them. Then I put them in two opposing corners of the 9-Patch to make this quilt. It was given to our Guild Charity

Andrew's Rag Quilt Andrew’s Rag Quilt
By: LaRue Wilson, Texas, USA

I started this quilt with one Charm Pack, as this was the first time I had used one. After it was finished, I decided to enlarge it by adding a border of one of the Moda fabrics, giving it an extra ten inches all around. My grandson loves it!

I made this baby quilt for a friend’s baby boy. She wanted each piece to mean something to the family, so she chose each piece of fabric and I cut them into 5″ charm squares. She loved the quilt and it made the baby’s Grandpa cry!

I made this quilt in conjuction with one of the very first quilt alongs I participated in when I started writing my blog. This was also the first time I had used a charm pack to make a quilt – I know, hard to believe. It opened up the world of small quilts to me – and I love them!

The picture in the center is cut from a child’s T-shirt that I over-painted. It took well over a year to collect the “doo-dads”. It’s hand-sewn and hand-quilted.

Floating Stars Floating Stars
By: Heather Spence, Washington, USA

I didn’t want to cut up the charms from Moda’s Maypole line of fabrics. They were so yummy!! Instead I highlighted them, took an accent fabric to create the stars then bordered with the white. It turned out beautifully and I’m more than happy with the results.

I love the Bliss range of fabric by Moda. This lap sized quilt was made with 2 charm packs and some white yardage. It is so fresh and the colours are very “me”. I seem to make quilts for everyone else, so this one is definitely all mine.

Scraps for Kim Scraps for Kim
By: Deb M., Illinois, USA

I’ve made a lot of grandmother’s flower garden quilts but have recently discovered half hexagons. The halves make such different patterns from the whole! I really enjoy putting together each little Y shape and then deciding where they will go in the finished quilt.

Verna Charm Baby Coin Quilt Verna Charm Baby Coin Quilt
By: Elizabeth Garner, Texas, USA

I am fairly new to quilting. This week I finished a baby crib quilt using Moda Verna charm squares for my third daughter who is due to arrive in about five weeks. This was the first time I tried free motion quilting (stippling) and while it’s not perfect, I loved both the process and the results!

    The Verna coin quilt is beautiful. It is amazing that she is a beginner. It is very sweet. This will be a lovely addition to her nursery.

    Beth did a great job with the CLAMS INCOGNITO quilt. I was impressed a design like this could come out of charms!!

    i nearly entered this one but my work doesn’t feel half as good as what i always see entered here!! great job everyone <3

  4. Now, this is amusing … my funky quilt full of hanging charms among all those beauties. Guess this is a gage of how far out of the mainstream I am in the quilting world. Now I know “charms” pertaining to quilts means 5″x 5″ squares of fabric.

    I love working with charm squares. They are such a fun way to get a little bit of all fabrics in a particular fabric line. Funny thing, though, I’ve been in the quilting world a long time and when I first read this one, I was thinking traditional charm quilt as in…….not two fabrics alike so it’s called a charm quilt. Or so I learned many years ago. Now the terms “charm”, “layer cake”, “honeybuns”, etc. have all taken on a completely different meaning and quilters who joined my grandma around the quilting frame would wonder what is going on with quilting these days. LOL!

    I just started working on a charm quilt using 2.5 inch squares I won in a Blackbird Designs giveaway publicizing their new Moda line: Antique Fair – love it!!
    Blogged about it this morning; come see!
    Amazing varietry of entrants this week!

    These were all such beautiful quilts! Although we have different tastes in design and fabric, there was such talent showcased. Thanks for inspiring me and thank you to those who voted for my quilt, whether you know me personally or not!
