Martingale does it again, with the help of Moda

You know all those mini charms you have, and you save them in a jar so you can see them . . . well, now here is a book for you!

Please note the second quilt from the left, is by yours truly.

17 projects to inspire you to use some of your little treasures!

Here is the pretty picture of mine:


You will love this book, you will understand why I make small quilts, almost instant gratification.

Best news yet . . . royalties for the book will be donated to LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs.  The group’s mission says, “A dog is a friend who brings a calming influence, allowing people to open up their hearts and receive help for what is affecting them.”  Specially trained LCC K-9 Comfort dogs visit disaster locations, community events, and care facilities around the U.S. wearing their ‘Please Pet Me” vests — offering comfort where words often fail.  It’s a little thing — the comfort a four-legged friend can bring — that can make a huge impact in the lives of those hurting.  You can learn more at their website (  This little book will help make a big difference.

  1. I would love to make more mini quilts using this book and mini charm packs.. I also use mini charm packs for English paper piecing. They are so much fun.

  2. Your mini quilt is adorable. I look forward to trying mini charms. This book would be a great help. It would be so nice to quickly sew and quilt a bunch of little projects. I’d have gifts on hand for whatever the occasion.The savings in quilting fees alone would be astronomical.

  3. Looks like a great book. Like the idea where the royalties are to go, nothing is better than a pet, in my case a dog. A good quilt book and a wonderful pet, what more could you ask for?

  4. Oh, what a great organization for the donation! One of my sisters lives in Sandy Hook and teaches at Newtown High School and they had the Comfort Dogs in their schools after the massacre in Sandy Hook. Those dogs were hugely important! She told how when the dogs had a break, the vests would come off and they would play and frolic as any dog does. But with the vest on, they are at work. Thank you.

  5. Oh this looks like fun! I have mini charms that I have bought because they are just so darn cute! Now I can find projects to use with them!

  6. Jo Morton “Does It Again”! This is a sweet little quilt that can almost fit into anyone’s decor.
    And your talent shines Jo, the placement of your colors is inspiring. I’ll buy the book to get the patterns but I am impressed that the proceeds go to a necessary cause.
