I've been collecting these charm packs in this patriotic color scheme for quite some time. Now I'm pondering as to what I might make that would show off this different assortment and styles of prints.
Of course a simple square pattern would be quite traditional. Most of these patterns would probably be set off by a classic natural muslin. I could certainly cut 5 inch solids to sew a checkerboard pattern. But before I do that, I want to consider some other options.
I do love this classic color combination of fabrics in red, white, and blue. Seen here in this photo I have enough to do something interesting with all these charm packs. I'd like to discover a quick and easy pattern so that I could sew these up without to much thinking. I need something that I can work on while I try to wind down after a day at school. It would be nice to have something in this color scheme that I could give as a gift or use on the guest bed.
Maybe I should look into getting one of those twister templates where you sew the squares together in sets of 4 and then set the template on the center seam according to the marked lines and re-cut a new square that has angled pieces. I do love that look of movement that seems to be created by the pinwheel like shape. I wonder if that company makes one that works with 5 inch charm squares?
