Rainbow Charm Project

What feels like forever ago I was apart of a rainbow charm swap.  Sad to admit, it’s been almost two years.  These charms have sat in my WIP box with not a lot of inspiration.  I even created a board on Pinterest for the project.

As I have started to use Instagram more I found this quilt and really liked it.

number of quilt squares I cut the 5 inch charms into 4 2.5 inch squares and arranged them in rainbow order with high and low volume separates.
