My Bingo Card for the May for Me Celebration and A Charm Giveaway!

Hop over to Vrooman's Quilts  and Sharon will explain how to assemble your Bingo Card Quilt.  I'll show you photos of mine here and share a Giveaway of charm squares to make a Bingo Card Quilt.  5 charm packs - 5 winners!






I got out my bins of charm squares!
Sorted by color.
Rotary cut the squares to the size Sharon says on her Bingo Card Tutorial.
This charm square had purple cats, green cats, and blue cats! I cut a purple cat for the purple row and I cut a green cat for the green row.
 My dragonfly was lavender, so I used the purple sharpie to make it purple.

 Lined them all up.
Stitched the rows together.
 Used the black sharpie marker to make the letters for BINGO on a strip of white fabric.  Added a black border and quilted it and bound it.
You saw my bin of charm squares...  Well, I am going to share them with you! Five of you!

I sorted and counted out about 27 charms squares and bagged them up - making sure I had at least 5 for each row and some assorted charms - where you can choose the color you use for your Bingo Card.  You will need 24 squares, but I included extra so you can make choices.
I made five packs of charm squares to giveaway!

I would love to join in. Please send me some charm squares so I have some to add to the ones I have so I can make a couple of BINGO boards for my friends. After all the more the merrier, right?!?

This looks like fun! I enjoy reading your blog and am inspired by your machine quilting. I have a 9" machine on a frame and appreciate the ideas for my simple set up.

Very neat idea for Bingo playing :) Love your card too! Can't wait to make one now. lol

Very cute idea, like a mini I Spy quilt. My kids always liked to play bingo when they were little and this would be perfect.

Jennifer said...

I'd love a chance to win one of these - it sounds like such a great idea!

Lisa Cox said...

This looks like so much fun. And so easy to make. And possibly a chance to practice a little free motion quilting there too?! I would love to win these as I just used up my scrap stash to make a picnic quilt.

This looks like a fun easy project. I like to have something like this to work on after doing a big quilt project, my way of winding down I think.

Thanks for the chance to win the charms to make bingo cards! I'd wondered how could get all the right color charms. I was working through the list of BINGO blogs and was pleasantly surprised to find you had thought of this!
