Cherries Jubilee Charms


Yes, more charms - are you sick of hearing about my charms? LOL You might remember when I "had" to have Moda's Cherries Jubilee fabric. I searched high and low and was so excited when I found four charm packs and approx 30 fat quarters. I thought I knew exactly what I was going to do with those fabrics but then hesitated. I kept it all in plain view in my sewing room so I could think. (surely, you're hearing the Jeopardy tune right about now???) LOL I've been thinking and thinking - look at my nine patch variation block that I'm making with the charm packs (each block takes two charms). I have a setting in mind but I need to make a bunch of blocks first. I hope you can enlarge the picture and see my white tone-on-tone - it's CHERRIES. Guess what???? I found almost five yards of it in my stash! Color me Happy! teehee.

Very cute, Darlene. I'm GLAD you are showing lots of charm projects since the charm packs are so prolific! Sometimes one wonders what to do with them.

No I'm not sick of hearing about your charms. I LOVE what you've been doing with your charm packs. You make me want to run out and pick up a bunch. Unfortunately I'm on no-buy this month but I guess I could always cut charm packs from my stash....
