What to do with a charm pack?

Make a table runner.

While ordering yardage of Maison de Garance (French General) to make a table runner for my SIL from http://www.fatquartership.com/, I couldn't resist adding a charm pack to my shopping cart.  I realized I could make a table runner with just charms, but it was a bit on the small side for my SIL's table.  I showed a friend the unquilted top with the charms and she said she would love to have it (browns aren't really my thing), so I finished the runner for her.

One yard of fabric wasn't quite enough to cover the back, so I pieced in the Flying Geese with some of the leftover charms.  Backing fabric is a dark brown Kona and binding is Maison de Garance.

This was an easy and relatively inexpensive project that I could see myself making again but with different fabrics.

Very pretty. But like you, browns are not my faves! I love the back though!

What a nice friend you are!

This is one of my favorite fabric lines from French General. The table runner is really nice. I've learned to love brown---I used to detest it--brown painted houses-blech, blah---but it is a great neutral that plays well with other colors.
