Charm Pack Quilt Updated

I got my charm pack quilt (aka the easiest quilt ever) quilted. I still need to bind it, but I think I’m going to have to order a little fabric to do so. In the mean time, I wanted to show you what I’ve done.

(And if these pictures look a little different, yes, I downloaded a trial of Photoshop and have been playing with it. It’s not as complicated as I thought it would be. It’s actually kind of fun.

Super Easy Quilt to Make!

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.

Here’s what I did, and what you need to know if you’re going to make one, too.

First, you need 4 pretty charm packs. (If you don’t want to use charm packs, just cut your fabric into 5 inch squares.)
