Free Charm Pack Quilt pattern – Charm Pack Cherry from the Fat Quarter Shop.
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 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.

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!
