Charming Plaid Quilt

Charming Plaid

– 3 charms packs solid (I used 9900 11)
– 1 charm pack prints (I used Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket)
– 1/2 yd for binding
– 2 yards for backing
– 44″ x 60″ batting

1) Sort your charm pack by color. If you do not have 5 distinct colors, you will need to repeat one or two of the colors (I suggest making A and B the same).

For this quilt, you will need:
– 4 charms color A
– 5 charms color B
– 8 charms color C
– 9 charms color D
– 9 charms color E
– 90 charms background

2) You will need to trim some charm squares down to 2.75″ x 5″.
– color C
– color E
– 17 of the solid
* Pay attention to the direction of the prints. C pieces are vertical, E pieces are horizontal.*

3) Take one 2.75″ x 5″ print and one 2.75″ x 5″ solid. Align them with right sides together and sew along one side with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press seam open. Repeat for the remaining 2.75″ pieces.

4) Lay out your quilt according to the diagram. 

5) Sew the rows together. I prefer to sew the pieces from each row into pairs, then sew the pairs together until all 9 blocks are sewn. Press the seams in alternating directions.

6) Sew the rows together. Again, I sew them into pairs, then sew the pair together until all 12 rows are pieced. Press seams open.

7) Trim off the selvages from your 2 yards and press out the center crease. 

8) Baste, quilt, bind. 
* I spray basted, quilted on the diagonal following the design, and zig zag bound the quilt. Don’t forget to label it too! I designed my labels in Illustrator and had them printed with Spoonflower. *
