Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Accessory
Style Traditional
MoMoo on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Cotton charm pack, cotton backing and some off white material I picked up in a remnants basket. The binding is store bough bias binding

What are you most proud of? The whole thing - the squares are pretty much straight. Some not entirely and there is one areas where I accidently used red stitching on the white section but I think it adds to the charm!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use cheap material and so a test run. Charm packs are not cheap and this can be an expensive hobby if you make mistakes.

try using jeans or fabric from clothes for your first. try a lap quilt for a starter. Also try taping with masking tape, sandwiching the 3 fabrics/filler to the floor, wood or vinyl.

I agree about perfection--that comes with practice. Never heard of any one being too cold because a couple of seams didn't line up.

I like it. I have only made 4 quilts. Im more into lap quilts. A very picky friend of mine is teaching me. One really good tip is to put 3 or 4 layers of masking tape where your 1/4 seam will be. this gives you nice straight lines. good luck. Keri

It looks great. I wouldn't even take a picture of my first one, it was that bad. Keep going and enjoy yourself. Ann
