Have you seen the new book, "Back to Charm School" by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene from Country Threads in Iowa? This is Book #2 with more ideas for small quilts you can make using 5" charm squares. Some are simple and others are more challenging, but they're all very pretty. This book also has instructions for making quilt binding and other good info for new quilters.
