    One of my favorite quilts was made with 3 charm packs and it was a d9p. Need to make more. I'll see if I can find a picture of it. Hope I took one.

    I like to use jellyrolls and charms once in a while. Going to a retreat next week and I am going to do the jellyroll quilt which is one of Missouri Stars tutorials and a friend is going to make the disappearing 4 patch using a charm pack and is also a Missouri Star tutorial. Check them out. Sometimes it beats picking out fabric for a quilt, a little change up. When I buy a jellyroll I usually buy a yard or so of coordinating fabric to use as a border.

    Beautiful quilt.
    I love charm packs, buy 3 to make sure theres enough for a lap quilt. Sometimes buy some matching fabric for border and binding. Just did that with the Sentiments line.
    Also buy them to see if I like the line of fabrics.
    They give all of the line so they all go togather.

    Sash lovely quilt, I need to look for a d9p pattern.

    Have not seen any charms in 5 1/2", interesting. Haven't even noticed patterns for them unless I just assumed they were for regular charms.

    EasyPeezy is right on the money. When it comes to pre-cuts it is best to have a plan. Otherwise your fabric may sit for a long time before it is used. Moda's fabrics are some of my very favorites, and their patterns are nice, too. Do check out the website EasyPeezy provided.

    bought jelly rolls then find I should have bought (let's say) 1 jelly roll and 1 layer
    cake instead of 2 jelly rolls. They are not always interchangeable. So, choose
    your pattern first then you can make a wiser decision on buying pre-cuts.
    There are lots of free patterns at modabakeshop.com for pre-cuts.
    I also like the books from Pam and Nicky Lintott. Check on Amazon.
    I don't think I have a favorite pattern...too many to choose from. LOL
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    My favorites are charm packs. I enjoy making table toppers out of them because they are fast projects and I like playing with different color palettes/fabric lines with a relatively inexpensive investment. Here's one I finished this week using a pattern from the Anka's Treasures book "Charmed and Dangerous".

    Sash, your quilt looks so pretty! And Simplelife, I really like your table topper! I need to do something like that. I love table toppers but I've never made the first one and that would be a great use for charm packs. Thanks!
