Charm Pack Cherry free quilt pattern

I was asked a while back if I would like to create a quilt using the Fat Quarter Shop's latest free pattern, Charm Pack Cherry. Who could resist playing with new Moda Charm Packs, so I said sure! This is my version. This quilt is about 52" x 54" (before I washed it) and made from two patterned charm packs and two solid charm packs. The quilt works up super fast.
I chose the new Wishes collection by Sweetwater for Moda. Such a cute collection. I especially love those little pennant flags, not to mention the bias tone-on-tone gingham, which was perfect for the binding too. I was worried that the solid red would be too dominant, but it has really grown on me. I think the texture of the quilting made a big difference (it always does.)
The quilting on this quilt was done by Melissa Kelley of Sew Shabby Quilting. It's a simple, boxy-square, all-over design and works so well with the design of the quilt. I also gave the quilt a wash to give it that nice, puckery, worn-in feeling.
I used my leftover Wishes charm squares as an accent on the back. The rest of the back was pieced from fabric from my stash. (*pats self on back*)
This is rare for me, but I'm actually putting this quilt for sale in my etsy shop. Details here
You can download your very own copy of the free Charm Pack Cherry pattern here and watch the video tutorial below.

WINNER: cse84663February 25, 2014 at 6:31 AM
Color me happy, wishes, or April showers, too many good ones to choose. I love your quilt with the red! So striking.
Finally, I just have to share a funny little story about taking the pictures for this post. I always feel a little sheepish taking pictures of quilts out in "the wild", worried about what people might think. As I was taking this one, and older man rode by on his bike and shouted, "Did you make that blanket?" when I said yes, he yelled,"Good on you!" and kept riding. Thank you nice old man!

  6. Looks like a great pattern! I would choose Giggles--I think it would be a great project for my daughter to make for herself and Giggles is perfect for her (I can always pick out her giggle when she's in a crowd of girls!) Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. Nice pattern showcasing the different prints in a collection!
    I'd choose Mixed Bag for a nice bright quilt for a child, with an orange or light blue solid, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Eclectic Elements caught my eye. Great quilt and such a generous giveaway! Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hm...I'd pick either Sphere or Color Me Happy. Maybe with a grey solid? Although I saw someone else made a Valentines Day one that was pretty cute, too! I really like your use of red solid - I'm on a mission to use more color and less white!

    ReplyDelete
  10. As the old chap said, 'Good on you!' I know the choice: looking strange taking a photograph of a blanket in a public park or taking a photo inside a dark house.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Amy butler - Belle. Or Joel Dewberry - Botanique. I have a full cart sitting at FQS and that little browse did not help! Lol.

  13. Looks like a pattern my little neighbor could manage. She completed her first quilt in Nov. My choice is the quilt for a cause collection: Love and ( the other one I forgot already) with natural solids

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hahaha -- your picture taking story made me laugh. I always wonder what people think when we're out taking pictures of our quilts. My neighbor already thinks I'm nuts, so it probably doesn't matter. I love your Wishes quilt Amy!

    ReplyDelete
  15. V and Co.'s Simply Style or Color Me Happy! I really love her color! Charm Pack Cherry pattern would make for a quick sew up and an enjoyable time doing it! Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Ooooh, so many choices! I think I'd choose the Darlene Zimmerman's Classic Mini's. Your quilt is beautiful. I'm nervous about taking pictures "in the wild' too, especially because we live in a small town. Great story though. Maybe we should be out and about more often, then more people could appreciate our lovely blankets.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You live in an amazing state....get out there and take photos wherever you want...bonus is the little biking men you meet!:) xo

    Sweet Serenade and a parchment and seafoam green kona!:)

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is the perfect pattern for me to use as a beginning quilter! It also would make a perfect gift for me to give to someone whom I owe a debt of gratitude for a wonderful act of kindness. I would choose the April Showers charm pack and probably a solid red to go with it. That combination seems to fit the person to whom I would give the quilt.

I'd go with 'Little Black Dress 2' by BasicGrey and 'On Time' by Whistler Studios for the print packs and for solids I'd splash with color using Berry Kona Solids and New Pastel Kona Cotton Solids. Wheee..Now I need to look away before I spend money I don't have! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would choose Country Girls by Tasha Noel for the prints and Moda Silver for the solid.

    Good timing on this giveway. I need to think about a charity quilt for the guild and this would be perfect.

  74. I'm rubbish in putting colours together which is why I usually buy FQ bundles, jelly rolls etc. I like Moda's colour me happy which I am guessing might go nicely with the silver Bella solids. Thanks for the chance of winning some lovely stuff!
