Today is the day that my 5" charm squares arrived! This is so exciting! This is the first swap that I've had a return on so far from blogland! I had participated in a Jo Morton fabric swap back in September. Dawn over at Spring Water Designs was holding this swap.
She sent me a nice card with hearts on it, along with the 5" charms.
I had sent her 13 sets of 8 blocks each of different fabrics. That means I should have 104 different charm squares if there were no repeated fabrics! WOW!
Dawn asked me in her note to share what I intend to do with them. Well here is what I have in mind.
I've already got a few started. :0) I would like to use them for this "Apple Core" charm quilt by Cindy Blackberg. She uses a stamp to mark the design onto her fabric! I thought that was kinda neat and had never heard of using stamps before. So I thought I would give it a try. This is a hand piecing project. A Good project to work on in the carpool line while waiting for my daughter to get out of school!! :0) If I have any charms left I will use them in one of Jo Mortons tiny basket quilts. I just love baskets!! Actually, I might just pick out a few of my favorite charms right now for either the "Betsy's Baskets" or the "Beth's Baskets" pattern! :0)
