    I'm just daydreaming (inspired by some charm packs that are on their way :-) ) - I have a book of charm pack patterns, but none really thrill me -- do you have any favorite patterns you like use?

    How big would you like it? I just did one from Anka's Treasures. It turned out really nice. Let me know I could get you the info.

    I enjoyed making a couple of Little Charmers table runners, and also the Charm Party tote. It was a great size to use for the quilt show, could stuff small things in there as I bought them.

    I (will) have 5 packs of the Happy Camper charms - I was thinking of how fun it would be to make a camping quilt since we love to camp. I guess I should measure, but since we open up our sleeping bag and zip the two together, it should be big enough to cover an open sleeping bag (does that make sense?). Our bags just got put back in the storage area - I really should go drag them out and measure...

    Silly me - you can find anything online. 75/80" long by 66" wide. Or thereabouts. :D

    I think the D9P is a great one for charm packs!

    Good idea! I can probably pick up some fq's or even yardage to make some more squares to make it big enough....

    I've seen several at the moda bakeshop. They have quite a few I want to try. Good luck.

    I just finished a top with fat quarters and made the disappearing 9 patch and turned out so cool, I can't wait to finish it
