I've had this tin of Summer in the City for a while now and haven't attempted to make the project inside yet. I read through the instructions and realized that it only uses about 1/2 of the charms and only makes a 16 1/2 by 16 1/2 inch quilt. What would you even do with that? I thought I could expand it and make it bigger but my brain is still recovering from a migraine and I couldn't think that hard. The tin includes a full charm pack plus extra squares of this dark brown fabric. Of course I have no idea what color brown it is so buying more is probably not an option. I do have a few ideas floating around in my head and so I still may end up making a quilt from this to donate.
Next up I found this pack of 6 fat quarters. When I found this pack at a quilt show it had been made into the cutest bag but of course they were out of the bag patterns by the time I decided I had to make it. So I picked up the fat quarters anyway thinking I could go online and purchase the pattern. That was almost 4 years ago and I've never found the purse pattern (I probably wouldn't remember what it looked like now) and I haven't used the fabric so I thought it would work.
pattern. Once I saw that I figured I could turn this tomato red/orange fat quarter set into a children's quilt pretty easily. I had some Moda Champagne that I bought to make my Greek Cross quilt with. I didn't like the way it looked with the Joel Dewberry Heirloom so it was sitting in my sewing room on the table. I thought it looked pretty good at first with the Wonderland.
