Charm Squares #1

Before I started any projects I fell in love with the charm squares by Moda and bought several different patterns. Although upon starting my practice projects I realized that I would like to work with larger squares, not having to cut out hundreds of squares makes these charm packs fabulous in my eyes, even if they are only 5x5 squares.

The first project I attempted with these Moda fabrics is the disappearing nine patch quilt. A great tutorial for making this pattern can be found here, until this crafter decides to remove their link, if ever.

I made it as far as steps 1 & 2 and wanted to share my progress because I think this quilt is so darn cute! I ran out of fabric and had to order another set of charm squares so this project is to be continued upon the arrival of more fabric:

I love disappearing-nine-patch ... discovered the concept/pattern when someone mentioned it to me about a year ago. VERY COOL, and I've used it a lot!
