Sunday Quilt Inspiration: 5" Charm Squares

Charm squares. We love to admire their colors, stack them in piles, imagine them as quilts. How can you get more of them? Well, visiting your local quilt shop is a good first step (as though you needed to be told). And you can always cut your own. But if you want more charm squares …

What can you do with a pack of Charm Squares? Lots, actually. But it probably helps to know what Charm Squares are. Generally these five inch fabric squares come in packs of 42 pieces, so one pack will make a crib quilt.
