Around and Round

Finished block: 4 1/2" × 4 1/2"

Finished quilt: 49 1/2" × 58 1/2"

Skill level: Beginner 

49 1/2" × 58 1/2", designed and made by Tricia Maloney

I just can’t resist grabbing a pack of pretty charm squares when I shop at my local quilt shop or my favorite online store, can you? Most of the time, I have no idea what I’m going to make with it, but I still can’t resist those yummy little packs of fabric goodness. This pretty little throw goes together fast and really showcases those delightful bits with only the addition of a single coordinating fabric, making those charm square impulse purchases completely guilt free. (Wink! Wink!)
