Charms: Quilters Candy
This blog is an introduction to PRECUTS,
the charmers of the fabric worlds.
Sometimes I forget that not everyone lives and breathes quilting,
but an excellent customer question sparked this entry.
“What’s the stuffing about charm packs”
The United Notions Company, purveyors of Moda Fabric
have been the trail blazers in creating and marketing
precision cut packs of fabric units.
My favourite instant gratification is a new Charm Pack .
Note the pinked edge to reduce fraying.They come that way!
Each charm pack is a collection of 5 inch fabric squares of quilters’ candy ,
from a full line of coordinated fabric.They are ready to sew time savers,
Beautifully coordinated table runners,
They are especially great for scrappy look project ,
where you can savour many bits of quilt candy.
Layout a pleasing assortment
PERFECT for beginner and busy quilters !
For a little more challenge add sashing.
or try a small project like this ribbon blanket.
You can cut them smaller into different shapes
and use them as applique too.
Or arrange the units into an image
For a challenge , sub cut and combine the squares into infinite detail .
Of course I love them for making my beloved medium size yoyo-
just pick up and sew!
