    I seem to have fallen in love with charm packs lately. I just got another 2 (matching) ones in the mail today. I am almost finished with a stacked coins quilt that I did with batiks that I bought on here from hperttula123 :) Last week I bought a couple of sets with greens and blue batiks.

    So my question is what is your favorite pattern to use with these cute little guys! I really liked the simple look of the stacked coins!

    I liked my Disappearing 9 Patch and am getting ready to start a Disappearing 16 Patch. That one will need some extra squares cut. If you want to see my 9 patch, click on my name, go to topics started and open "Birthday quilt'.

    I just finished a table runner with most of a single pack. I cut the charms in half, sewed them end to end and then sewed the strips together. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow.

    I love your birthday quilt! It is so pretty. I really like it set on point too! I have yet to do disappearing 9 patch. I have bookmarked yours for my to do list! I don't think I have ever seen a disappearing 16 patch? Do you still just cut it in half both ways after the squares are cut? Or are there more cuts made? I would love to see a pic of it too!

    This is the site with the D16P. http://stashmanicure.blogspot.com/20...-16-patch.html

    This is the quilt I am starting Monday. I think her fabric requirements are off, but I can refigure it. http://happyquiltingmelissa.blogspot...uilt-long.html

    The birthday quilt has a different block in the center because setting on point takes an extra block and I was out my pretty charms, so I had to wing it.

    I love the Perennials, by Elenor Burns for Bernatex, wish I could get the fat quarters. They are to die for.

    I love D9P. I'm always amazed how great it looks when you cut and rearrange the squares. Charms look great with a simple sashing too. Just sashing without cornerstones. It really sets off the prints. To dress it up, some applique in the borders is nice also.

    I love the stacked coins pattern too, I've made a couple of those with charm packs. Another nice idea is this zigzag quilt.

    I don't have an actual pattern, it's just hst's made with the charm squares and a coordinating fabric.

    I like making pinwheels out of them, or just framing each of the charms.
