Fun with charms

Friday I had another growth removed from my armpit. This one was under the other arm from the first one. So once again, I am forced to take it easy while my incision heals. This one is slightly smaller than the last one, so I hope it heals more quickly.

I can't tell you how easily bored I become. I think tomorrow I will need to take a trip to my local library so I can get something to read. This weekend I decided would attempt a little sewing. So I took the charm packet I bought on vacation and got busy. I found a template for a 4" finished size drunkards path block down in my sewing room. And to my delight, the charm pack I bought was just the right size to cut one each of the wedge and the arc pieces. I got 40 blocks made in no time at all, and there was almost no waste fabric! This is what I have so far.

There are four more blocks left. I intend to use them as cornerstones on a border. But first I will need to try to find some of this fabric line locally, so I can add the border and binding. I really like this fabric line- especially the polka dots. When this is done, it will reside on my kitchen table.

I have never seen a drunkard's path made scrappy like that and I love love love it!! Scrappy quilts are my all time favorite and these fabrics look like they were just made to go scrappy. Great job!

Charm packs are such a delight to work with and you get such a wide variety of colours which are all coordinated. Love your table topper!
