One Charm Pack Quilt

Ever wonder what to do with just one charm pack? I did until I saw a vintage quilt made from feed sacks that gave me an idea. I loved the look of the old quilt and decided to try to make a modern quilt based on the design. My one lonely charm pack was perfect for the quilt!

I found a two yard piece of fabric in my stash for the background and Modern Charm was born!

The charm pack I used is called High Street by Lily Ashbury for Moda fabric. If you have a charm pack laying around, this is an easy quilt to make. If you have two charm packs, you can make a larger twin size version too.

I like the quilt so much I have written a pattern for it. My Modern Charm quilt pattern is now available as a download on Craftsy or in my Etsy shop. A paper version is available also.  Ask for it at your local quilt shop.

The quilt on the pattern cover was made by Barb Wardenburg of Rainbows and Calico Things Quilt Shop. She used 30's fabrics from the Kimberly's Garden fabric line by Fresh Water Designs.
