Charm Square Sweet Treasures To Give As Gifts.
Do you have some charm packs laying around that have yet to be used? Why not stitch up one of these Dazzling Stars mini quilts designed by Tara Lynn Darr. Made for a perfect charm square mini quilt project, you can make most of the blocks with 5 inch squares or smaller pieces of fabric. Tara’s mini quilts are also created with the idea of whittling down those bits and pieces of left over fabric from other quilting projects.
I’m a little addicted to charm packs as they’re a collection of fabric that has been cut into squares that measure 5” x 5”, and provide an inexpensive way to get a sampling of all the prints in a fabric line or collection. You can always rely on charm packs to provide fabric that speaks to your quilting style, and they’re super easy to use in quilts of all sizes.
Even if you only have a few squares left, you’ll be able to make a charming new quilt pattern with your favorite fabric. There’s always a pile of leftover fabric bits and adding them to the right charms bring scraps to life! This Dazzling Star mini is a small quilt project for your home, as well as a sweet treasure for gifts.
The Dazzling Stars pattern is taken from Tara Lynn Darr’s book Simply Charming :Small Scrap Quilts Of Yesteryear from back in 2011, and offers 20 projects for every skill level using charm squares or smaller.
