MMMM. That fabric looks delicious!

Jen said...

Oh, what a great charm pack. I'm in love with charm packs right now. I have so many ideas in my head right now of patterns I would love to design, but it seems that the quilt stores near me haven't gotten into the charm pack fad yet.

My most recent, favorite quilting project was the bento box top that I just made... I had been dying to make one.
