I`ve Got Lots of Charm(s)

So just after I posted yesterday, my husband walked in the door with a priority envelope...don`t you just love getting these in the post?  In it were my charms from The Color Wheel Charm Swap.  Just take a look at these.

They are not perfectly in order but you get the idea.  And here are just a few of the beautiful fabrics...


A huge thank you to Kati who generously allowed us international swappers to have fabric delivered directly to her for cutting into 5 inch charms.  I hope Kati decides to do a second round as it was a low stress high reward swap. I love my charms.  Now what to make?

For the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee, I decided on mulberry, orange and grey for my colours.

Lastly, the lovely Rebecca over at Making Rebecca Lynne is having a fabulous giveaway to celebrate her first milestone in followers.  You have a great chance to win a lovely pouch and some de-stash.  What are you waiting for?

Ooooh pretty! I love that hot pink and black one! I found your blog through Loulou's shout out and even though I couldn't quilt to save my life (I only just learnt to sew!) I'm following along so I can soak up some fabric gorgeousness through you :) Have an awesome day!

Katherine said...

Thanks for being a part of the charm swap! I still have my charms laid out for easing admiring in my sewing space. So many gorgeous fabrics. Just think of all the beautiful projects we can make from them....
