I have WAY too many charm packs. But what can I say? I love them! For the most part, Moda is the only company that makes them. I’ve seen a couple from another company, but I’ve never been able to get Amy Butler’s fabric in charm packs. Until now. The Fat Quarter Shop sells her fabric in squares in a pack called a Jolly pack. So thanks to Ms. Jolly over at the Fat Quarter Shop, I was able to get my Amy Butler dose in a charm pack size. And, yes, I felt quite jolly about it!
So it was time to do something about my accumulating collection of charm packs. I started off on this project thinking I would make a large piece of fused charms, then cut it up to cover a box. But when it was all done, how could I cut it? I had to hang it up on my wall. So here it hangs, thumbtacked over the changing table turned home office of sorts in my craft room.
My next project wasn’t so successful, but I’ll show it anyway. I made it out of my Apron Strings charm pack. There are so many things about it that I DO like: the clothesline, that goes right along with the apron strings theme, the pockets, the buttons that I can hang things off of . . . but the wallboard as a whole I’m not in love with. It could be that I was migraining when I made it.
At this point I don’t know what to do with it. I did learn a thing or two so that made it worth it.
I think I have 2 charm packs left, but they’ll have to wait until I get another quilt or two finished for my boys.
