QnT Charming Charms April 2014 USA only

04-06-14 thru 04-28-14

This is a new version of an old swap favorite, the 5” fabric charm square swap but with a twist! It is time to build up our stash of 5” fabric charms and include complimentary charms as well.

Charming Charms are 100% cotton quilting fabric cut 5”X5” from two different fabrics that coordinate or compliment each other. Please do not send low grade loosely woven fabrics, and always send the quality you would want to receive.

The first set of five Charming Charms should be a print in the color for that month and the second set of five charms should compliment the first print. Charming Charms are coordinated charms that can be used together in various projects.

So in APRIL you will select pastel print fabric and cut five 5”X5” charms from that fabric. Then you will pick another fabric that compliments the first one and cut five 5”X 5” charms from that color.

You will send each partner a total of ten charms each month.

Example: If your pastel print has blue flowers in it cut the complimentary Charming Charms from a blue print fabric to match the blue flowers in the red base fabric. Please note that your base fabric can have as many or as few other colors in it as you like as long the pastel part is obvious. Your complimentary print should accent the pasetl print but be in a much smaller print to use as an accent and not to outshine the base fabric. Plain fabric can only be used as a complimentary fabric if your receiving partners allow. I would prefer not to get plain fabrics. Thanks!

Summary: 2 partners

        5 pastel print 5”X5” charms

        5 accent/complimentary 5”X5” charms

Total charms sent to one partner should be 10 for a grand total of 20 charms cut from two different fabrics each month.

Questions are welcome, please post below. Please be sure your fabric is clean and cut accurately so that our Charming Charms can be used right away in any project we decide to create!
