This quilt uses two charm packs of Hometown by Sweetwater
and approximately 1 yard of cream quilters cotton. The quilt ends up being about 28"x33", a baby quilt
First separate out your charm pack into groups of 4 and piece together, ironing the seams flat. This picture only shows 9 sewn squares (36 little squares) but to get the right size you need 12 (48)
Then I stacked up all my (approximately) 10x10 four-squares and turned it diagonally to cut off the corners.
Here's an important tip: make sure that the squares are truly square so that they are 7x7.
And here's something that's going to happen...the corners are probably not going to all line up perfectly, unless you decide to cut each square individually. But I liked the slightly wonky look.
Lay out your squares how you want them and for the sashing, cut 15 2x7 pieces of the cream and lay them between it.
Okay here's where you're going to be a little confused. I actually added one more row of squares and sashing because I thought it was too small. Remember that previous picture of the 9 squares? You should do 12 THERE not here. I ended up sewing together the triangles I clipped off and they were smaller so I had to trim all my squares. Just extra work for me, so don't make my mistake.
After you sew in all the in-between sashing, cut two strips that are 2" wide and whatever length your squares are long. Like this:
Then I added two more sashing borders on the sides that were 4" wide rather that 2".
And that's the whole top!
The rest is basting, backing, quilting, and binding. I used the rest of the charm pack to make the binding. If you don't make a billion last minute changes like I did, this top should come together very quickly.
