Today’s charm pack baby quilt continues on the Disappearing Nine Patch theme. I drew it up in EQ7 but haven’t had a chance to make it yet. It was kind of an afterthought and I used all my charm packs in other quilts so it will have to wait until I can pick up some charms next week.
This quilt is constructed like the sashed Disappearing Nine Patch from yesterday only but with the addition of cornerstones.
Again, you will make sashed nine-patch blocks and cut them in half both horizontally and vertically as shown by the lines above. To make the quilt you will need (36) 5” charm squares, (48) 5” x 2-1/2” rectangles for sashing (1/2 yard) and (16) 2” squares for cornerstones (1/8 yard). You will also need about 3/4 yard for outer border and binding.
After cutting the nine-patch blocks into fourths, set the resulting blocks in five rows of four blocks each as shown below. For borders, cut four strips of fabric each 3” wide. The finished quilt will measure about 38” x 46”.
Here is another idea for an easy charm pack baby quilt. This is a picture of a quilt I DID make from a Villa Rosa Rosecard pattern called La France. This is the third quilt I’ve made from that pattern and it always looks good.
Hope you’ve gotten some ideas for easy baby quilts from this series. It will continue tomorrow with another quilt!
I love both of these you are showing today! I went to the quilt shop this morning and bought 2 fabrics in yardage to make it in a larger size. I can’t wait to start but I need to finish one that is almost done. Looking forward to tomorrow! Enjoy your Fourth, I will be sewing! Hugs,
I love the quilt layout shown (middle picture) and was getting ready to make it when I noticed that it didn’t look quite right. If you cut the 9 block as shown in the first diagram, the blocks don’t come out as picture in the quilt layout. Am I correct in seeing this? It seems that the short white sashing strips don’t show. I just thought I would point it out. I’m going to make it as described although I do love the layout that is pictured without the sashing too. Thanks for sharing these wonderful quilts!
