C is for

Charm packs! We love these little guys.  I did a little research.  Did you know that one of the definitions for the word charm is "capture: attract; cause to be enamored", also, "appeal: attractiveness that interests, pleases or stimulates".  And of course pack means to arrange in a container.  So, really, you could say that a charm pack is a way to capture attractiveness (fabric) that simulates (creativity) in a little container.  Here are just a few of the charm packs that we currently have in the store.
*Bliss by Bonnie and Camille for Moda (click here to get a glimpse)
*Punctuation by American Jane for Moda
*Breakfast at Tiffany's by Fig Tree for Moda (this one just barely came in)
*Wheels from Riley Blake
*All Star from Riley Blake

Since we are already whipping out definitions, might as well add another.  Schnibble: A scrap of fabric; a leftover bit of cloth; a small piece.  Also, a type of pattern from Miss Rosie's quilt company.  Most of these Schnibble patterns call for charm packs!  One caught my eye the other day, called Plan-C (ha "C"....get it).  Guess what?! We have a kit coming for it made from Punctuation.  Get excited.  We have a few other kits for Schnibble patterns, you'll have to come in and see them. 

Another kit we have that calls for charm packs, but is a larger sized quilt, is Texas Hold 'Em (or so we named it). The pattern is from Fig Tree quilts and it is called Clovers.
I really love you ladies because I have done more research so that I can find you the pattern for that cute pumpkin from the Jo's Little Women Club post.  It is also from Fig Tree! See.

Recipe for today.  Chocolate Raspberry Truffle tart.....things.  So good.  Not hard....not super easy.  Again, SO GOOD.
