    It's always disappointing when you don't get what you thought you were suppose to get. What was the line and who did you order them from?

    One pack I think is Moda;the other 2 are Benartex. I will have to photo what I've done with them. It is good for a creative stretch. I made a table topper with the first 2 charm pks & now I'm doing a little wall piece with the other. I have some charms I got for Christmas, and I'll prob add some other fabric for a more satisfying design. Now, I know more.

    When I'm thinking of purchasing a charm pack, layer cake, or jelly roll in a fabric line that I'm not familiar with, I always go Google it and look at the image results. Generally, there will usually be a pic showing the full line of fabrics in the collection so I can get a sense of what's below that top fabric in the package.

    Dotty....Do you use one 5 inch charm to make one of the cute pincushions you have in your avatar?

    No, but I could. Those are 6" circles for tomatoes & bias rectangles (a la Martha Stewart) for the gourds & pumpkins! This is how we grow vegetables in NYC!
