Charming Plus Quilt-A-Long

Do you suffer from a scrap problem?  Have a fat quarter bundle or other precut you’re not sure what you want to make with it?  Are you freaking out that Christmas isn’t too far away and you haven’t started sewing?

First breathe.  Second, grab some coffee, I may have a solution for you.

In March I published the Charming Plus Quilt Tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew (click for link).

There was great feedback and a few questions.  One question about why I didn’t make the center squares a rectangle instead of three squares.  Main reason, this was designed as a scrappy quilt originally.  I wanted to give people options to use up their squares.
