    Charm Pack Patterns

    Hello there ladies and gentlemen!
    I was wondering if you could point me to some of your favorite charm pack friendly patterns. I have recently acquired several hundred 5in squares and I'm looking for some fun ways to use them. Thanks for your help!

    I've only made one quilt from charm packs - a D9P. It was really easy but I got bored with it pretty fast. I usually like to make sampler quilts.

    This is what I'm working on right now - http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/10/...ars-quilt.html. So easy and cute! I'm making mine larger to fit a queen bed, so it will be about 6 charm packs. The Moda Bakeshop website has lots of great ways to use pre-cuts.

    Check out Missouri Star Quilt Co tutorials on YouTube. Jenny uses many charm packs in her work.

    Love the star pattern of the 14 in block. Easy way to use up fabric. Hugs

    there are a few great books out there for charm squares- the 2 I have are called 'Nickel Quilts' more Nickel quilts---they have lots of great patterns in them- and creative ways to use those 5" squares. I know there are more than the 2 I have- do a search for ' Nickel Quilts'

    On the simple side -

    Moda's bakeshop: Line Dance Baby

    I've made it larger just by adding more vertical strips and making them longer.

    Here's one I did for a high school senior. It's about 60X70.

    Look for the book Nickel Quilts & Borders by Pat Speth. Lots of good ideas there.

    Lots of good ideas posted here. I, too, have a stack of 5" squares that were given to me. I've done a couple of coin quilts using Moda Bake Shop. They are easy and come out nice. The two I've done were crib size but you could certainly make them larger. I haven't seen the windowpane one before but I may try that next.

    Jennie Doan at Missouri Star Quilt Company has a ton of videos on quilt projects using charm packs (5 inch squares). Love her tutorials.....

    Try Anita's Arrowhead using 1 inch sticky note and following the rest of the instructions, cutting 1 inch strips. So easy and so cool ...
