New project: "Simply Charming - Seasons" Snowflake Quilt

Jul 14, 2010

When I picked up this pattern book, I was surprised to find that I liked 9 or 10 out of the 12 patterns inside..... Usually, it seems only 1 or 2 catch my eye, so finding this pattern book was exciting. There is a pattern for each month of the year, all of them based on using charm packs. Super cute!

It came with a kit for the "January" quilt - a snowflake lap quilt. I am usually against buying kits since I love the process of picking out your own fabrics and watching everything come together, but I decided to give this one a shot. Below you can see the kit and a photo of the finished pattern.

Instead of charms, the kit had 11 - 6" cuts of different fabrics. So the first step was to cut the fabrics into 5" charm squares.




Next I plan to start making blocks for the center snowflake. Slow progress, but I'm sneaking downstairs to cut during naptime!
