Good things come in small packages. I'm talking about mini charm packs. These adorable bundles of joy are difficult to resist.
I purchased two packs of these cuties. The collection is called The Boo Crew.
I wanted to make a couple of quick and inexpensive Halloween gifts and decided on candle mats.
They measure 10" x 10". I used just 25 squares for each. You can get 3 of these mats from just 2 mini charm packs. They took no time to sew together. I added simple straight line quilting. The backing is from a matching fat quarter.
These are about as close to instant quilt gratification as you can get. I see many more in my future.
This has been sitting around for a couple of years. I lost interest in the fabric. I like it, I just don't love it. This line is called Charisma and it's from Moda. It's a crappy day for photos, so I'll keep them to a minimum.
It was pretty easy to finish. I did simple straight stitching.
I used a red print from the same collection for the binding.
I wanted to use every last bit of this, so I used some leftover blocks and the rest of the yardage on the back.
I think it came out well. You can see the lines of the quilting on the back. I kept it simple.
I'm happy to have it finally finished and I can see a new home in it's future, it just won't be mine. One of my sisters really liked this fabric.
