One thing I found in the stash closet when I cleaned out recently were several pairs of charm packs. I don't even remember when I bought them, they're that old. One was "Origins" and the other was "Punctuation", if I remember correctly. Neither is something that is exactly my style but they were fun to work with because of the variety.
I was working with a pattern in the book "Another Bite of Schnibbles". I just love Carrie Nelson's small quilts! I started making a small quilt named "Nash" and, don't you know, I messed it up.
So I wanted to make one correctly. I cut out the same pattern in the second charm pack set, and had enough to make it rectangular instead of square. This time I didn't mess it up.
