Let's try something different

I got myself a mini charm pack from free spirit Denyse Schmidt modern solids. Those 2.5" x 2.5" squares are just too cute to resist but I had no idea how to use  them.

I could have done an Irish chain quilt but felt "Meh" about this idea. I remembered seeing a quilt that I could use those tiny squares in but I wanted to make it my own too. Here is my inspiration. I do not know who made it so if you know please tell me in the comments


And here is my version. Hopefully it will be as cute. I only added one triangle instead of 2 but like I said I wanted to make it my own. :) It feel quite modern since I only use solids and I am going from soft in the middle and darker as the quilt get bigger. I will probably quilt it with different colors wavy lines. 


  1. I love your version! I always wonder what to do with those little charm squares, what a great idea.

  2. Oh, I think your version is lovely! I don't like to use little charm packs because I never know what to do with them and I usually only have one pack. Great idea to use them as punches of color on a white background.

  3. Interesting! What I find even more interesting is your idea of going from soft to darker. I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern this will create.
    I noticed that some triangles touch another one and some are alone... I suppose you need a good focus when assembling the squares. I'm sure I would make mistakes. lol

  4. I love both versions, and isn't it nice to use up those charm packs?

  5. I like your start. Looking forward to seeing the finished flimsy.
