Good Morning and Happy New Year to All,
Well here it is now, WINTER! So, my thoughts have turned to my projects for the coming year. I would like to make some quilts for my daughters/DIL's. Here are my thoughts. I would like to use charm packs, if I can find a good price, to prevent all the cutting. I have to make seven of these and my goal is for Christmas this year. My DH is going to make them all quilt racks for me. Anyway, I have a design in mind. I would like to use a 5 inch charm pack and cut some horizontal strips to fit with the 5 inch square. Then I would like to put a small picture at the one corner in a square shape. I was then thinking it might be fun to put a square of fabric on top of the picture, so the gals would have to lift the fabric to reveal the picture. I have just begun quilting and this is probably a severe undertaking, but I think I am up to it!
My questions are these:
Has anyone heard of or made a quilt using a "flap" to hide something underneath? Are there any links that I can go to?
Is there some sort of chart somewhere that would tell me how many charm packs I need to complete a certain sized project?
Thanks, as always for all your help.
