Simply Charmed Quilt Top and Fabric Tuesday

 Quilt top finish!
Finished Size: 36.5" x 45.5"

This simple and sweet quilt top is made of Hello Luscious charm packs and a few pieced blocks. 


The blocks didn't stick out as much as I'd hoped.  But I am smitten with the color palette, so pretty!



If you wanted to make your own I'll give you a quick tutorial!  It's really easy so don't be intimidated.  You'd need two charm packs OR seventy-one 5" x 5" squares.  I made one small pieced block (the star), so the finished size for that would also be 5" x 5".  You could make as many of these as you want, just subtract from the seventy-one for each that you make!  Next I made two pieced blocks to replace 4 smaller blocks.  The finished size of those blocks would need to be 9.5" x 9.5".  Piece together as seen below.


It's fun to dress up simple blocks with a few pieced ones.  Can't wait to quilt it!  I'll share when I do :)

Oh I think your blocks stand out perfectly! I feel like this is a perfect little project for someone who might not be up to making a whole quilt's worth of blocks, but has some beautiful fabric to show off. Nice!

I love that idea! I like that the pieced blocks don't jump out. When I looked at the photo, I noticed right away that it wasn't just squares. It made me look a little closer at the quilt. Love it!
