Charm Squares

A true charm quilt is no two pieces of fabric alike.  You cut two charms and keep one and give one to a friend.  You can read more about charm quilts at   Here are the 2.5" charms I have been cutting.  I think mine will be a true charm quilt since my friend gave me all these scrape pieces of fabric and no two pieces are alike.
I plan to make a table cloth for my patio table.  I have been sewing 9-patch blocks together.  I am not sure how many 9-patch blocks it will take.   

I hope everyone is enjoying Father's Day.  I am sure my dad is working on the fire trucks in heaven.

Happy Father's Day Dad.  I miss you.

Happy sewing.


  1. I love charm quilts ... love that every time you look at it you see a fabric you "missed" last time you looked xx

  2. I didn't know that about charm squares :) I love your table cloth.
    I'm going to have to do a charm swap with my sisters :)

  3. OOOO I'm loving your nine patches.
