I love charm squares because they motivate me in so many ways. A stack of turquoise squares inspired me to create this candle mat for my Secret Santa at school.
It is a disappearing 9 patch. I used 9 different fabric charm squares-3 of each. I actually matched the colors to the candles I already had. I then found some garland in one of my crafty stuff drawers and tada!
I attached one of my labels I had printed on fabric at Spoonflower. If you have never been I reccomend it highly. If you would like to design your own fabric this is the place to get started. Hearther Ross fabric can be found here too.
Now for the why I love ebay. There are so many great charm squares available. I love to buy 4,5,6 or even 2 inch sets of 35 + by color. They inspire me to create. Here is my charm square stash.
I want to leave you with images of my wonderful Christmas tree I finally got. Between rain and snow and high wind and bitter cold it has been a challenge.
Each year I call my daddy to help me go to a local tree to pick out my tree.
