Happy New Year and welcome to a fun week of revisiting some quick, fun, easy and FREE quilt patterns from the Fat Quarter Shop!
The Charm Box Quilt Pattern is part of the FQS Shortcut Quilt Series found on their YouTube Channel and the tips and tricks Kimberly shows you . . . well, I completely understand why it ranked as one of their Top 10 videos of 2015!
When I first saw a picture of the quilt, I had already determined in my mind how it was constructed but boy was I surprised when I stopped to watch the video . . . yep, there’s definitely a SHORTCUT method involved and it makes piecing the center so quick and easy.
And if you use the “suggested” materials (2 Charm Packs), the quickness increases that much more. I had quite a few “small” swatches of the Steel Collection fabric laying around that I simply cut down to 5” squares before starting my project.
I LOVE this concept but more importantly I LOVE the design. The finished size is 36-1/2” x 45-1/2”; great for a child’s play quilt!
