I looked into my stash and found a pink fabric that would go well with it and cut it into 20 5 inch squares, so I had a total of 40 squares.alternating pink and the charm pack, I sewed them all together.Then added a border of 5 inches all around.
Next I took the ruler and started cutting the quilt up.
Wow! you have to cut a lot of fabric off your quilt and just throw away. It is nothing you can keep and do something else with. But you wind up with some cool looking squares. I had watched a Missouri Quilt Company video on how to cut these up, so I knew to keep them organized. Thank goodness for that info. I had a hard enough time putting it back together by just cutting one row at a time and sewing them together. Had I cut the whole quilt up, I would still be working on it. The link to the tutorial is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-d1sqIfUctQ. Worth your time to watch.
When all was said and done, I really like what turned out. It will make a cute table topper or wall hanging come spring.
It is worth trying at least once. I think if I was going to do another one, I would do the bigger size or use more fabric.
Here is my finished project:
Keep on Quilting!
