My next resolution is to keep on keepin' on with my Just One Charm Pack series. I have over a dozen ideas still left and a few more charm packs that need to be used [understatement].
The Inverted 9-Patch is one of my favorite quilts I've ever made.
And it's the only quilt that I've made more than once. It's still usually the first pattern I think of when I see charm packs, but I'm re-training my mind to consider the other Just One Charm Pack ideas I have percolating.
The Double Diamond 4-Patch might be a new favorite. I find myself toying with the idea of making a new one. This one went to my grandmother for Christmas, and the pattern just went together so easily. It wouldn't take long to whip up another one for myself :)
I have another Just One Charm Pack pattern queued up as a blog post, but I haven't actually made it yet, so there are no accompanying pictures. (Can we say most boring blog post ever?) I will give you a hint, though. It will be made with this fabric.
So to summarize, this resolution is pretty fuzzy compared to the others, but I'd like to keep on cranking out the Just One Charm Pack Tutorials, in hopes that someone else out there will find inspiration and guidance, when they find themselves stuck with Just One Charm Pack. Oh, and also because my stash of charm packs still looks like this:
Back to work...
