CHARM PACK CHERRY AND A GIVE-AWAY

Need a quilt in a hurry?  Try Charm Pack Cherry !  This is a really easy pattern that works up super quick and finishes at about 52 x 54

Just two charm packs and the same amount of background and away you go. I used a charm pack of Sherbet Pips and a bunch of leftover charms from different lines by Aneela Hoey. They all work well together.





Want to make one for yourself ?  I've got two charm packs of 'Wishes' by Sweetwater to give-away. Just add background.  Leave me one ( 1 ) comment on this post.  Hubby and I are away for a few days so I will choose a winner when I get back.





Thanks so much for stopping by and please be sure I can get ahold of you          : )
