    Have you ever bought one? If so, what did you make with it?

    I purchased 2 of the Fossil Fern Charm packs because there are 100 charms in the pack and they were at a great price. I haven't made anything with them yet though. They sit on the shelf next to my other charm packs that are waiting for the right project to come along!

    I've got a batiks charm quilt in progress -- stained glass woven effect, much like a pattern in Nickels and Dimes.

    Nope..... never bought a batik charm pack. Not that I could not be persuded! It just that the dimensions don't work that well for my purposes, I would end up with too much waste ...

    No I never have and don't plan on buying any in the future. I am so picky about fabric choices I would probably throw out half of the fabric. That would be a terrible waste.

    I love batik charm packs. I mostly buy them to have a good variety on hand for applique, when I need lots of colors or shades to choose from.

    I have bought 3, mostly to get a true view of the fabrics but I'm using the for an applique quilt . I've bought yardage of some of them to do other quilts since I was sure I liked them.

    I recently purchased the 24 piece batik fat quarter bundle that Connecting Threads has. It will be a quilt called "Sailboats" which I can not find on the net. It has a total of 16 sailboats all radiating outward. Looks perfect for a scrappy type quilt. Found pattern in "1001 Patchwork designs" by Maggie Malone. A few of the pieces in the group I have will be too light for my use, but I have more than enough to do a good variation.

    I bought 3 batik charms but haven't used them yet either. Am waiting for the right project. Also bought 24 fat quarters of batiks at the same time. Thought I'd find a project using all of this. I also have yardage for borders and binding. I'm ready, just waiting for the right pattern.

    i just bought a batik layer cake from connecting threads. i ordered it so i could get an idea as to what their batiques were like, i plan on making a king size quilt as a wedding gift. ordering the layer cake is allowing me to sew with the fabrics first. i'm going to make that super easy layer cake quilt from the missouri star company....
