'Charmed' to Meet You!

Ooh, look who came to my house today! A lovely bunch of 28 charm squares in yellow, aqua and gray!
I'm so excited! These are from the Yellow, Aqua and Gray Charm Swap over at Craftbuds! I was very lucky to get in on this one as it filled up very quickly. I have been waiting (rather impatiently) for them to arrive. They got them out quickly, I just don't wait well! Lindsey worked with Anna of Crafty Girls Workshop to do this wonderful swap. I chose the cheater route and just bought mine straight from Anna's shop. If you bought through her, you could have her cut them for you and everything!
I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a good idea for charm square quilt with these. I thought about just doing a snowball quilt and adding some other fabrics I have in these colors to make it a bit larger. What is your favorite quilt pattern made from charm squares? I'd love some ideas!

I had the same dilema but then I found this pattern over at Sweet Jane's.

It was so quick and easy and I get tons of compliments on it.

I've been keeping my eye out for a charm quilt pattern too lately. I was one of the slow pokes and didn't get in on this swap :( Wow, looks like you got a lot of great prints! I did get in the grey, black, and white swap. Here's a tutorial I saw today that I liked at Don't Call me Betsy:

I can't wait to see what you come up with. Ok... gotta quit blogging now. Today's the day I put the binding on my Diamond Chains QA quilt! Whohoo!

I like 'X-Rated' by Schnibbles. It's the only thing I've used charm squares on so far. It is a small quilt, only 31" square, but, I made it MUCH bigger (bed sized) by just making more and more patches. It was fun.
