    I found a quilt pattern on the Moda Bake shop that I wanted to make as a surprise for a friend. I showed her the pattern and she said, "Ew... it makes me dizzy!"

    Okay.... now what to do with these three charm packs I ordered to make it!!

    I'm looking for some free charm pack patterns. I've been all over the Moda Bake Shop but most of the patterns call for layer cakes or jelly rolls as well as the charm packs and I really can't afford any more material. I'm open to suggestions!

    Could you tell us which pattern made your friend dizzy? Based on that we could try to give other suggestions.

    http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/07/sunday-best.html made her dizzy but I love it.

    I watched the Dresden video and can't believe how easy it is! Well, minus all the hand stitching which I'm terrible at. But it looks doable. I'm going to look up the Chinese coin pattern.

    She and I are doing tons of D9P for some charity quilts so I'd like to stay away from that.

    This is a link to a baby quilt I'm going to do for my SIL. I think it could easily be enlarged and kind of looks like a Chinese coin pattern! There is a link to the free PDF pattern on the site.

    Yes! I made a Chinese Coin wall hanging last week, turned out great, and charm packs would be perfect! A little goes a long way on this pattern! :-D

    That pattern would make me dizzy too but I know it would excite my daughter. Isn't it a good thing that we are all different. I'd check out Pat Speth's Nickel Quilts and More Nickel Quilts because both books were written to use 5" squares and she has some great designs.

    I love the new pattern they have posted. I have some charm packs but not 3 of the same so I may have to do some shopping.

    Just goes to show how everyone had different taste. I myself like this pattern that you picked out.
