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!
by
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
border.



Thank you for stopping by!



Philippians 4:13

I can do all things
through Christ which
 strengtheneth me.
