Mini Charm Muffins Quilt

I know it's still August, but I love sewing with Christmas Fabric year round ... it always makes me happy! I seriously love all of Sweetwater's Christmas Collections and their latest - The Christmas Card is fabulous!  Let me share what I made with (9) Mini Charm Packs !

I love the new FREE pattern: Mini Charm Muffins Quilt designed by Fat Quarter Shop! The original pattern calls for 34.5" x 34.5" quilt, but I wanted mine a bit bigger so I made 9 blocks instead of 4. 

I must share a close up of the Moda Grunge Grey Couture Fabric ... love love love!

The Mini Charm Muffins Quilt pattern is perfect for your stash of 2.5" squares or you can easily cut your charm packs or layer cakes to 2.5" squares too! Does any one else "collect" mini charm packs??? Use a Creative Grids Stripology Ruler or your AccuQuilt GO! to quickly cut 2.5" squares from your stash!

Lately, I've been loving machine quilting with Sulky Blendables ThreadI used Sulky 30 wt Blendables Rhubarb 733-4121 I love this variegated thread! The 30wt also makes the machine quilting stand out more. Since it is a thicker thread, I recommend using a 90/14 top stitch needle or 100/16 top stitch needle.  If you find that your thread breaks while free motion quilting, please make sure you are using the correct size topstitch needle plus a drop of Sewer's Aid on the eye of the needle can be helpful too!

Isn't that variegation so lovely?!?!? It randomly changes colors every 2-5"! You can find the thread at Sulky (here).

When binding my quilts, I love using a striped fabric so the scallops striped print (The Christmas Card Charcoal Scallop) was perfect!!!

I'm so excited to have a brand new quilt ready for Christmas this year!!! I'm thinking this one will be added to my family room quilt collection now because I just love it and can't wait until December!
