    How big are you planning on making it? Also when you cut your blocks out did you place them in all over areas or did you try to keep the set of 4 cuts together?

    I sewed 9- 5" charm squares together and cut them in half cross ways and then again length wise and just stayed with in the same block and moved the 9 pieces all around. There were 9 cuts together,not 4.I plan on making it into a queen size I guess.I am really not sure yet until I get the rest of the fabric.It was fun to make though!

    What I meant is after you sewed your 9 blocks together you cut them in half lengthwise and cross wise - which gives you 4 blocks, did you take those 4 blocks and rearrange them and sew them back together to make a bigger block again or did you randomly place all the cut blocks all over the place?

    Does this make sense?

    I stay within the same block and move them around. I used charm packs to make mine.

    Nice quilt - 5" my choice too.
    I've seen a couple done with 6" or larger squares. Doesn't
    come across well.

    Very nice. Love the color combination you used. I have been wanting to make one of those quilts since I saw it a couple months ago. I guess I should just grab the fabric out of my stash and get cutting. :)

    You will really enjoy making this.I did!! I sure will do another one and I usually do not like to do repeats. No cutting 5" squares with charm [packs and it moves along real quick.Great for a beginner like myself.

    How many charm packs to make a lap quilt? Any idea? I don't have a clue but want to work on something that doesn't require reading a pattern, just sew, iron, cut, sew, iron....

    I bought a bag of 300 4" squares on ebay a year or so ago. Going to use this for my 9 patch project. What would y'all do, separate in lights, med & darks and just reach in and grab? Suggestions please!

    The more I look at this beautiful quilt top the more I think this is the pattern that is in the Mystery Quilt on Eric's Homemade. Any takers?
