    What to make with these chains???

    I have 7 charm packs and 2, 2 yard cuts of some matching fabric, anyone have a idea of what quilt pattern to make.. I would like to make a king size and can add some other fabric like a background fabric, if I need to..

    I was thinking of the jewel box with a white background, anyone else coming up with another idea for a quilt to make with these charms? Thanks

    Pretty fabrics! I like the jewel box idea but whatever you make will be lovely.

    Ribbons is a very nice pattern for those. You cut the 5" squares down the middle and add in a 1" background strip. Afterwards the square is still 5". Lay those out on point with alternating background charms. See Donna Jordan demonstrate making it on You Tube, "Jordan Fabrics". I am almost done with a Ribbons scrappy top made much larger than the one Donna Jordan makes.

    I was curious about this pattern so googled it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVm0IH1hKZw
    What I found most interesting is that she trims off the pinked edges... so apparently they are excess to the 10" size of the layer cake. It's a neat pattern and very easy to do.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    The BQ series quilts by Maple Island would work very well for these.

    There are tons of ideas on the internet. If I am stumped for a pattern I go to Pinterest and get some great ideas. Please share with us on what you decide. Beautiful fabrics
