Book Review - 3 Times The Charm!

Some of my neighborhood quilt shops 
take part in a quilt run twice a year.
Once in the fall (Reindeer Dash) and another
 in the spring (Spring Fling).  

On the first stop you pick up your
passport which you have stamped 
upon arriving at each shop you visit. 
You than receive a
free pattern along with a fat- 
quarter. Below are some of the fat-
quarters I received with a
few I purchased.

I decided I wanted to work on these 
fabrics.  One of the many 
  fat quarters I have collected on 
these runs.  I choose not
to use one of the patterns I 
received.  Instead, I picked one
 out of the book, "3 times the charm!
Barbara Groves & Mary Jacobson.

 I choose the pattern named,
 "bertha," in the book.

This book is wonderful!  It gives
a total of seven quick and
easy designs with three looks
for each design! That's right
"3 times the charm, 21 looks!

The instructions are easy
to understand and you get
full pictures of all the
quilts made three times.
General instructions from selecting
 fabrics to preparing, cutting,
 piecing, pressing 
and quilting are all included 
in this 40 page book.

 Here you get a look at what I 
have chosen and made
with the christmas fabric 
I've collected!

The book is made to use 5"
charm packs.  As you can
see I didn't!

 My quilt label was sewn with my 
embroidery sewing machine!

My finished quilt!  I just love it!
In time for Christmas!!!

Quilts in this book range 
from 19-3/4"" to 42-3/4".

I give this #bookreview
5 buttons 

Of course you can make these quilts 
smaller by removing a row of
quilt blocks or enlarging
the quilts by adding more
blocks and/or adding an extra

Tiny (Tim) Quilt

Recently, I've been interested in 
making some tiny quilts.  These #tiny
 #quilts would add a splash of 
color to my already  adorable 
 sewing machines 
I have displayed around the house.

I was hoping to finish up a few of
these cute quilts, but was only able
to get one completed.

I purchased the pattern 
The small book is called T for Tiny
and you get a total 
of six quilts.

I used scraps from my stash.  
Cut, marked and

assembled my blocks.  A total
of twelve blocks. T for Tiny
was the name of the block
used in the book, but while sewing
I decided to name it T for Tiny Tim,
after my youngest son.  

Attached by blocks

Sandwiched my Tiny Tim quilt.

Here's the back of my tiny quilt.

Sewed the binding and attached a

label to the back of my quilt.

Here you have it. An adorable
 quilt displayed with my 
antique sewing machine.

A note of caution!  While making
this quilt, I did have to adjust 
the pattern some.  My finished
quilt measures 10-1/2" x 13". In
the book it measured 8-3/4" x 11".

I don't know about the other quilts
in the book.  I do plan on making 
more.  You do get a total of six
quilt patterns in the book.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
