These 5" charms can be so versatile and may be used in hundreds of different patterns, but, I have found a few that possibly you may not have seen, and these are offered by their designers or online store owners for free and free is one of the best ever gifts to receive.
Larene Smith, Designer of The Quilted Button worked with the Quilts of Valor Foundation, with Windham Fabrics and through the events for the Maine Quilt Shop Hop this year offered an original design for Windhams fabrics for the hop shoppers. A beautiful design in honor of American Soldiers. Nice pattern and it is Free for personal use.
News from the Hen House was a Blog and then it morphed into a Quilt Shop called Red Rooster Quilts. It has a lovely pattern which you will like, I am certain you will love this free pattern pictured above.
From Elizabeth Fransson, of Oh Fransson as a frequent blogger on Sew Mama Sew you will find a link to the pattern for this pretty baby quilt pictured above. Elizabeth also offers many concise and wonderful tutorials too, should you be interested.
These are but a very of the many charm square free patterns being offered by the very talented people in this blog hemisphere we all enjoy every day.

Once again I am behind, I meant to complete the baking, but only accomplished the peppermint candy cane cookies yesterday. I interrupted the baking because our Lions Club had its last meeting before the Wrapping party this Saturday. Due to the overwhelming increase in the list of recipients for the Angel Christmas Tree Project, we find we have a total of 108 children. Residents have been overly generous. Last night we wrapped up 49 Christmas bags filled with toys and Christmas goodies. The balance of the bags will be wrapped on Saturday evening and readied for Santa's elves at the various Food Banks to deliver with the Food hampers.
Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you do not allow ourselves to be tuckered out with the million and one things you have to do to be ready for Christmas eve and Christmas morning, even if your too too busy, make or set aside even a half hour for your internal batteries to recharge, you deserve to do this for yourself.
Okay, I am off to complete the baking - wish me luck!
