Charm quilt pattern



As promised, here is a FREE pattern that was a part of our Charm Club last year. If you love those 5" Charm packs that are available, you'll love the Red Rooster Quilts Charm Club. Each month you will receive a pattern that uses a charm pack, a 10% discount on all charm pack purchases and a one time Red Rooster Quilts charm club charm. Please go to our web site, http://www.redroosterquilts.com/ to sign up.
Enjoy this free pattern and please feel free to share this blog site with your friends so they can make one, too. This size makes a great wall hanging, table topper or baby quilt.

Red Rooster Quilts Charm Club Quilt Pattern
Finished size: ~36" x 36"

Supplies:


1 Charm Pack with 49 – 5” squares
¼ yard inner border
½ yard outer border
1/3 yard binding
1 yard backing
38” x 38” batting
4 ½” square ruler

Cut each of the 49 charm pack squares in half creating 2 – 2 ½” x 5” rectangles. Use one light rectangle and one dark rectangle and sew together along the 5” edge. Sew all pieces together in this manner.

Square up blocks to 4 ½” square.

Arrange blocks into 7 rows of 7. Place one block so that the seam is horizontal and the next block so that the seam is vertical. Continue to alternate this way for each row. Sew blocks into rows and then sew rows together.

Cut 4 – 1 ½” strips x width of fabric from the inner border. Sew onto sides and then top & bottom.

Cut 4 – 3 ½” strips x width of fabric from the outer border. Sew onto sides and then top and bottom.

Cut 4 – 2 ¼” strips x width of fabric from the binding fabric.

Quilt as desired and bind.

This pattern can be used with any of the 5” charm packs. Just change your quilt size and layout based upon the number of finished blocks from your charm pack.
