Christa Quilts. I've chosen a charm pack by Moda called Ocean View for my pearls.
I'm following about a half step behind as the charm packs are 1/2 inch smaller than the directions given. Also, I prefer strip piecing the charms onto the accent strips - and then trimming rather pre-cutting the accent strips for the boxes.
The short strips fit eight charms each. So far I've used 5 and a quarter width of fabric navy strips.
The next step will be to cut these apart and press the first sides. Then on to the next 5.25 strips.
I took a break from quilting over the weekend and went to South Mountain State Park with our Boy Scout troop. We hiked about 10 miles up and down the mountains on Saturday.
