‘Tis the Season to be Charmed – Sweet Treat Blog Hop and giveaway

{The giveaway is now closed}

Sweet Treats Blog Hop

Welcome to my post on the Sweet Treat Blog Hop. The challenge is to make something from 1 packet of mini charms (42 – 2.5″ squares) and 1/2 yd of co-ordinating fabric. (As usual, I got it half right and did not read correctly the 1/2 yards requirement. Oops!)

Finished Quilt Size: 36″ x 48 1/2″
‘Tis the Season to be Charmed mini quilt has a Christmassy theme with the inscription, Love, Hope and Peace inscribed on the bottom row.
What you will need:
1 packet of Odds n Ends mini charm pack by Cosmo Cricket
1 yard flax background fabric ( 36″ x 42″ piece )
7″ x width of fabric leaf green piece
42″ x 58″ backing fabric
40″ x 54″ wadding
1/2 yard binding fabric
  • Fold the flax solid into quarters and then again twice on the diagonal.
  • Place the mini charms on point as shown in the diagram below.
  • Glue or pin each mini charm in place
  • Using a smaller stitch, sew 1/8″ in from the edge of each square. The squares are cut with a pinked edging to prevent fraying.

  • Cut the 7″ wide leaf green strip to 36″ wide and sew to completed panel.
  • Place 9 mini charm squares on point evenly across the joined pieces.
  • Layer the top sheet, wadding and backing and quilt as desired. Bind it, Label it and give it to someone you love.
