    What will I do with these?

    I won fourteen mini-charm packs in a blog-hop, giveaway thing. They're each from a different Moda fabric line and all cute as they can be, but what in the world will I do with them? There are forty-two 2 1/2 inch charms in each. Ideas? Thanks!

    Do you have other fabric on hand that will coordinate with your little squares? If so that will increase your options.

    A friend took mini charm packs that were given to her, added white, and made a tumbler quilt. Really cute.

    If you don't want them, there are lots of us 2.5 inch charm collectors on the board. Offer them for sale or for trade of something you do like.

    That's a lot of 2-1/2 inch squares! Will any of Bonnie Hunter's patterns work for these?

    Mix them all and sew them together to make a fun scrappy quilt.

    sew them together into 9-patches- then either sash them or use triangles & put them 'on-point' (which would be wayyyy cute!)
    you could use white, cream, black, or any color from the squares to either sash or use to put on point that would pull them all together.

    Perhaps you could make doll quilts or minis out of them.
    Adding a common fabric or two to them will make them bigger as well.
    Hope you find a solution!

    I made this quilt with 1 mini charm pack and then cut a charm pack into 4ths. 99 squares for the heart then extra for the border. It was simple and kind of cute when I finished.
    I've included the site where I got directions.

    Add some matching fabric to each of the packs and make quilted bags.
