that the one and only charm pack I've ever purchased (about 5 years ago?) has never been put to use - just gazed at admiringly. I like the charm pack so much I was afraid of making the "wrong" thing with it - thereby ruining it. I know. It sounds silly to even admit that. The other issue holding me back was that I didn't have enough fabrics that would compliment the charm pack. Until now. I happened to be in my LQS looking for something else when I came across a manufacturer's scrap bag of fabrics that I KNEW would coordinate with my languishing charms. This is what I have come up with after pairing them up and with the addition of a couple of fabrics in my stash. This palette is so unlike anything I have worked with that it's stretching my creative muscles. Even my family has made comments about the change of pace colour-wise. Definitely time to broaden my quilting palette!
