When I asked about your interest in a scrappy square quilt, you were kind and enthusiastic.
So, I am pushing ahead on the project.
That means a lot of cutting.
Here is what you need to do if you want to get started:
1. Pick a charm size: 2-1/2″, 2″ or 1-1/2″. The 2-1/2″ charms will yield a quilt approximately 70″ square, if all goes according to plan.
2. Cut approximately 750 charms. You can make them all different if you want. Or you can pick a color. Or use up those pre-cuts you have laying around. It will take about 5 standard 5″ charm packs to make the required number of 2-1/2″ or 2″ charms. If you have a number of single packs, this would be a good project. Scrappy is happy!
3. Get a background fabric. At this point I have not calculated how much. But I can’t imagine it will be more than 2-3 yards.
4. Wait (hopefully patiently). I am still cutting squares myself. Hopefully the tutorial will be ready sometime around the middle of March.
Oh, I forgot to mention that the working name of the quilt is Fading Charms.
How does that sound to you?
