I drooled, dreamed, schemed over this online picture of varsity with the rest of you for WHAT SEEMED LIKE AN ETERNITY!
This mini charm pack was my first virtual sighting. I couldn't resist. Before too long and several trips back to an etsy basement store (couldn't even wait for the mail man), I had 6 or 8 of them.
and was furiously sewing away. This method of checker boarding is so intriguing, but not recommended, it's only for impulse quilters with lots of mini charm packs.
this method is much faster.
why you ask?
are you still using your archaic square rotating board? or have you discovered the matilda's cutting mat? YES, more than just the earth is round. learn about it here

I have 100 left-over mini's from this project. It contains the yellows and blacks from the mini charm pack, as well as others. If you're interested in them, leave me a comment telling me how many years you've been sewing, and how many years you've been quilting.
