“use it up” mini charm quilt

I’m a little obsessed with mini charms lately. They have the itty-bitty cute appeal, but it’s also a great, cheap way to get a variety of prints. Plus lots of cutting eliminated, so duh. We recently got a whole bunch of new minis in and I probably audibly squealed when we opened the box. And this isn’t even all of them.

The Suppose Creative Guild recently had a small quilt challenge and I knew I wanted to use my April Showers mini charm from quilt market. This Bonnie & Camille line doesn’t come out until March but we’ve got the mini charms in. The colors and prints are just a perfect mix of retro sweetness and modern graphicness. Plus, it reminds me of the days as a kid when I’d play in the warm SoCal rain with my huge, clear dome umbrella.

I wanted to make something simple and I wanted to be able to use every piece in my charm pack, so I doodled until I came up with this. The background is Kona Ocean, which isn’t in any of the prints so none of them blend in too much (which some would have if I had chosen navy as I almost did). I love how happy the bright blue ended up being.
It finishes at 22 1/2″ square, and I quilted it kind of densely with horizontal quilting so that it would lay good and flat in case I use it on a table. I also used thin polyester batting, since it’s nice and stable (not stretchy or wavy) for when I hang it on the wall. I’m calling it “Use It Up” since I didn’t have to have any leftover charms.  I wrote it up into a little pattern in case you want to make one too. And if you do, I’d love to see it! Post a photo to Instagram and hashtag it #supposequilts!
