    I recently ordered a few charm packs that I loved. Now I can't find a pattern that I want to use them in. Any suggestions of where I could find a great pattern? I prefer to do something interesting other than just sewing all of the squares together. Any suggestions will help.

    You could do a Disappearing 9 Patch Quilt, although you would just be sewing blocks together you would then be cutting them apart, rearranging them and sewing them back together to make a whole different look!

    EDIT: Yeah what Cathy said! lol

    That's what we quilters do. . . cut big pieces of fabric into small pieces of fabric. Then sew them together into big pieces of fabric. :lol:

    Besides D9P

    What I did was I drew a line down the middle of 1/2 of my charm squares (if you cut, it would make rectangles). I then put 2 charm squares together. I sewed 1/4" on either side of the line. Cut. Now you have 2 sets of identical rectangles.

    Rotate one 90 degrees. Draw line like before, sew on both sides like before, cut.

    2 identical 4 patches. Repeat, put together, make pretty quilt. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-26874-1.htm

    Other pattern. Do the same thing but use the diagonal. Make 2 identical hour glass blocks. Much more point matching on this one :| I'm working on it now so no picture to post.
