I've never used mini charm packs but I love 2.5" squares for EPP hexies. And I can't wait to make a coffee koozie or two!

Since I'm just beginning in quilting, I would love to receive this for making mug rugs.

I have never used minis but I am definitely making this koozie this week! It's so pretty and I think it will be perfect for this fall. Might make some for my sons to give their teacher too.

I love making pot holders out of mini charms

Renee said...

First of all....the mini charm packs are great for pot holders, pillows, quilts that use small pieces, and a ton of other patterns. This koozie project is probably one of my favorites. I love the idea of putting the koozie on a cup and slipping in a gift card..or the small coffee packs and syrups to give as a gift. GREAT PROJECT!

Debi Horne said...

I love them for coasters! And table toppers, doll quilts. As usual, you guys make it look so easy with your awesome tutorials.

I like 100 block quilts and Granny Squares.

I like using them for pillows and table runners. I enjoyed your video. ��

The minis have become one of my favourites for little quilts and table runners. I made a Christmas runner this month with a new Christmas line, sorry I forgot the name but I love how it turned out.

Pamela Miller said...

What a cute idea! And useful too. Kimberly makes the best tutorials-step by step and so easy to do. A unique way to use the minis.

I would love to get Elementary. I'd make a plus quilt. 5 packs would be just what I need.

Kathy H said...

I have the 2 moda books for the minis and I love all the little table mays that you can make with them.

C Franklin said...

I always enjoy all of Kimberly's video turtorials. Mini charms are the only pre-but I haven't used. The Coffee Koozie is the perfect project to try them out on. These would make cute stocking stuffers.

I loved making this project for my grandson's teachers. Quick and easy! But I used Moda Candy Bars instead if piecing squares. Made it simpler and faster. Thanks for this inspiration!
