The Charm Pack Cherry Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop

I love quilts that can be for any level of sewer!  My goal is to have EVERYONE sewing so when Fat Quarter Shop asked if I would make a quilt using this pattern, I said  "ABSOLUTELY!"  Let me tell you, it goes together so fast, it is one of those " I need a gift right now!", I want to make something quick just for me ( this is what I did), or if you just need to get your sewjo back after a sewing lull, this is a project you can feel good about making and completing with no fuss and muss.


I chose to use Kate Spain Sunnyside for Moda Fabrics and Moda Bella Solids in Silver.  I LOVE how this turned out!  It is a warm fuzzy quilt for me to help keep me toasty warm for the rest of the winter.  Katy said she was going to take it from me and I hope she is joking!



As per our usual photo sessions, there was laughing since the wind would not stop blowing and one of these days, I suppose we should find a new spot to try to photograph!  In this pic, you can see the yummy fuzzy backing and the quilting that is there to hold the backing in place but is not tight at all.








The pattern for The Charm Pack Cherry is a free pattern  available on the Fat Quarter Shop website. Kimberly Jolly from Fat Quarter Shop made a youtube video to share how very easy it is to make this quilt.  If you are a beginner quilter, this would be a great starter quilt!  Grab the pattern, your charm packs, and let Kimberly walk you through the steps!




If you do not happen to have charm packs in your stash or you are looking for some new fun fabrics (  Kate Spain Daydreams is now out), you will not want to miss the Charm pack sale!  An amazing deal at 20% off ALL charm  packs!

Tell Katy if she steals your quilt, you'll steal her bag ;o)

I'm seeing the versions of this all over. I love it. I just need to decide which charms to use for my version.

Sweet! i am not really a pre-cuts quilter, but this quilt is so cute (and fast), I love the random look of it. I posted a comment on You Tube for the video tute and Kimberly says you only need one more print charm pack and one more background solid charm pack to make a twin sized quilt which is perfect for giving to your favorite charity quilt drive. :)
