Little Quilt Monday

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.

Joyful stitching,


  1. Yes, those mini charms are irresistible.
