Turn  your Charm Pack stash into Colorful Quilts!

Turn your Charm Pack stash into Colorful Quilts!

Posted by Cheryl Brickey on Jun 22nd 2021

Hi! I'm Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs and I would love to help you get your charm packs and fabrics out of your stash and into quilts.

Do you have a pile of charm packs in your sewing room? I know I do (even after writing an entire book about them)! Charm packs are so cute and such a great way of getting a little bit of each fabric from a designer's new collection. I would impulse buy them each time I was shopping for fabric.

But when it came time to use the charm packs, one charm pack never seemed like enough fabric to make a full quilt. Most charm pack patterns required 2 or 3 packs, sometimes matching packs. So my stack charm packs slowly grew and grew.

I wanted my charm packs to go into quilts so I came up with 18 patterns that would be the Hamburger Helper for charm packs and the Just One Charm Pack Quilts book was born.

By adding in an additional fabric and background fabric I was able to stretch the charm pack into a full quilt! The quilts from the book are perfect for babies, children, small lap quilts, table toppers, wall hangings, and more.

As a bonus (through the help of some wonderful quilting friends), each pattern is made in two different colorways for added inspiration.

You can learn more about the book, including how to pick out your additional fabrics to go along with your charm packs, and even how to create a charm pack of your own from your stash and scraps on the Just One Charm Pack introductory videos.
