Charm Square Challenge by Debbie Caffrey
Long before the age of precut fabrics, quilters exchanged 6" squares of their favorite prints. Many years ago Quilters Newsletter ran classified ads for quilters looking to trade fabrics to gain a better variety in their stash. Debbie used those same squares to make the Charm Square Challenge in 2005. Visit QNNtv.com for more information on the episode, click here for the free quilt pattern.

August 2013, Memory Quilts with Cindy Brick
Memory quilts combine fabrics, bits of damaged or treasured pieces, orphan blocks, leftovers from other projects, and your favorite embellishments into a quilt that captures your life! This is generally a patternless method; in other words, it can be adjusted to fit the sizes of your chosen materials. Another word for this technique is "framed sampler." Follow along with Cindy Brick on Quilters Newsletter Workshop TV on QNNtv.com. Click here to download Cindy's guidelines for making memory quilts.
