3 – 5″ x 44″ strips (for pinwheels): Cut again into 5″ squares:
Cut again in half diagonally

4 – 5″ x 44″ strips (for outer border)
From Charm Pack Prints:
Choose 24 Charm Squares:

Cut in half diagonally
Cut remaining Charm Square Prints into 2 1/2″ squares (for prairie points)

Press towards print.
Sew 4 of these squares to make one Pinwheel block.
I pressed seams open when joining squares to eliminate bulk.

Pin points to inner border on quilt, as shown. Overlap just a tad bit.

(Hint: pin all points to quilt top. There should be exactly the right amount of points. Should you run short, use a little of your binding or backing fabric to cut a few)

Baste points close to the edge as shown
Sew 5″ outer border strip to top and bottom,
trim excess, sew sides, trim excess

Iron outer border towards outer edge of quilt.
Back, Quilt and Bind!

A really cute, nice sized { finished size 36″ x 44″ } baby quilt
made with 1 Charm pack and a bit of fabric!
Can’t beat that.
