Multi-Faceted Charm Pack Quilt

Hey there! I’m Amanda Morrison, here to share my Multi-Faceted quilt with you today! This is my second quilt for Moda Bake Shop–you might remember my Pixie Sticks quilt that was published in May of last year. Let’s get started!

Start by cutting the following from your Bella Solid yardage and set aside. Plan to cut one 17″ x 6″ rectangle and one 22″ x 6″ rectangle from a single WOF.
12 6″ squares
17″ x 6″ rectangles
22.5″ x 6″ rectangles

Next, pair up 40 of your Serenity charm squares with 40 of the Bella Solids charm squares.  Stack them, right sides together and sew two quarter inch seams on opposite sides. Next, use a ruler and rotary cutter to cut these in half diagonally as shown below. Press both sides open.

Stack the triangles to sew a quarter inch seam down the long side, making sure to lock together the perpendicular seams in the center.

Press open your quarter square triangle (QST) blocks, and trim to 6″ square.  You will have 40 Serenity/Bella Solid QST blocks.

Repeat this process pairing 20 Serenity charm squares with 20 Serenity charm squares, to make 20 Serenity QST blocks.

Layout the QST blocks and the cut Bella Solid pieces as pictured below. In the diagram, the Serenity/Bella Solid QSTs are marked and the Serenity only QSTs are marked B. Make sure to pay attention to how your A QSTs are facing!

I started by sewing the center B blocks into a four patch and just worked my out in rings. You may choose to sew the blocks together in rows or sections as you prefer.

This quilt finishes at 55″ x 55″. My lovely sister, Alison of Little Bunny Quilts (and fellow MBS Chef!), was kind enough to free motion quilt Multi-Faceted for me.

I just love how Serenity pops on this charcoal background and can’t wait to see what color palette you choose!

Happy quilting!
