A LITTLE TEASER

I’ve spent the evening working with my Chocolat charm squares (prints and plaids). I’ve already made thirty (30) 3 ½” nine patches. Oh, they are so cute! I’m showing you a picture of some of the itty bitty nine patches – in my new project I will only be using the ones with the dark corners so I’m tossing the others in a basket. A project for those will come along someday! Tomorrow I have to go out to meet with some clients so I plan to stop by my LQS to purchase more plaid charm squares (I only had one pack).

By the way – I’ve been making my itty bitty nine patches out of the charm squares following the tutorial here. (be sure to scroll down the page)

More tomorrow!

Can't wait to see this beauty!

I have collected stacks of those 5" charm packs for quite a while and I now have some ideas for use! I am so happy to have found your blog so that I can come here for some new ideas! Great blog. :)

Cute!!! Looking forward to see what the next step on these are.

Those little nine patches are so cute. Can't wait to see what you have in mind for them.

Marvelous! I love making little 9-patches that size. There are so many things to do with them. The only catch - of course - is that it takes so very many!

Carole said...

I'm really impressed with what you do with so little. Somehow I feel I need at least 1/4 yard to be creative. lol I'm betting that you must not have a lot of scrap fabric. I do like what you do with your charm squares. Thanks for sharing.

Aw cute! And some bonus squares for another project. You are a piecing machine, my friend!

Nicole said...

Madam Estrella, my local fortune teller, says that there will be a Chocolat quilt in my very near future. Isn't that just the most beautiful fabric collection?

Judy said...

I've always loved this line of fabric! Looking very good!

Libby said...

Okay - you have sold me on the charm packs *s* I know just what I want to make - at trip to the quilt shop Wednesday evening and I will be in business. You are a bad influence *s*

Love the little nine-patches. They're adorable.

Wendy said...

Fantastic nine patches, can't wait to see more.

Mary said...

I love 9 patch quilts! I've seen these directions before but haven't tried them yet. I usually end up strip piecing my blocks.

Hanne said...

Cute blocks :-)

Thanks for the tutorial. Also the sight. I found exactly what I needed for a guild challenge.
