It’s little but cute!

Chris and Becky gave me a Leisure Art book with Charm Quilt patterns at Christmas along with a couple charm packs. The quilts in the book are really small – 32 inches square in the case of this one but cute. It makes a nice baby quilt and it was really easy to pack up to bring with me … The charm pack, a background fabric, and the book.

I will say that I like the idea of charm packs more than I like actually sewing with them. Accuracy can be challenging when you are working with those pinked edges although I’m used to compensating for less than perfect piecing!

It’s also nice to work on something that can be pieced from start to finish in a day.

    I love the little bowties.

  • SaraF:

    I have made a couple of this particular pattern. I also love it for the simplicity as well as how quickly it goes together. And I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how different it looks using different fabrics. One is a soft pink and white one and the other is very bright. Yours is so pretty in those fabrics.

  • Penny G:

    I love it! Charm packs have a place, but you are right about the pinked edges.

  • love the bow tie block.
    it made a beautiful quilt.
    I like to work with charm packs but I am not always sure how many to buy to complete a project. I guess I will learn as I go along.

  • Emily:

    Love your little bowtie quilt for the baby. I have the pattern. Since I have just started buying charm blocks, I did not think about accurate stitching because of the pinked edges. Guess I will have to compensate, too!

    Take care,
    Emily
