Charm Pack Patchwork Quilt

While I love the hourglass quilt I’m making for my son, I needed a break from it. I wanted something with (almost) immediate gratification, so I make this quilt top. It really only took me a couple of hours. It was so nice to do something simple and quick. I used 4 charm packs, and that’s it.

Before I started I knew it would be the absolute perfect quilt for a first-time quilter to make. It’s cheap, fast, simple and pretty. So of course I had to make a tutorial. (Tutorials just speak to the the former teacher in me, I’ve decided.) I’ll have that up in a few days.  (It’s up!)

I have a few old (vintage-y-ish) sheets that I might use to back it. I’ve not decided just yet.

Until next time, Happy Quilting!

Trackbacks

  1. […] Like I told you the other day, if you’re new to quilting, I think you should make this quilt first. It’s fast, cheap and pretty. You’ll get plenty of practice with pinning and sewing straight lines, it won’t take you forever, and you shouldn’t get too frustrated. […]

  2. […] Remember this quilt top? It’s not that old, but I have left it sitting all alone in my sewing room for several weeks while I thought about it’s backing. Poor quilt. […]
