Just a Charm Pack Quilt - I Believe in Angels

When I began percolating ideas for Moda Fabrics #charmpackchallenge2023 a charm pack of I Believe In Angels was what I really wanted to make with but thought its small prints might make it too busy for making #justacharmpack little quilt. But, I wanted to make with it so badly that I forged ahead.


This #justacharmpack quilt doesn't have a pattern. It is literally just charm pack squares, no background, sewn in pairs to make half-square triangles (HSTs). The general idea is to pair lights and darks. If you don't have an equal number of lights and darks, just select another color to substitute as a light, in this case the light blue prints.

HSTs are so much fun to make with. They present almost endless layout possibilities.
A few other #justacharmpack quilts I've made can be seen here and here and here and here. You can play with layouts all day : )

Simple stripe fabric from I Believe in Angels as the binding. It came out so tidy and neat (not that I'd redo it if it didn't : )

I find this fabric line from Moda Fabrics to be very versatile. It's a Christmas line but also feels perfect for going into Valentine's Day and late winter/very very early spring. The little prints are just darling.

This Just a Charm Pack quilt finishes at 24" square.
Again I used flannel as the batting and just backed with a Moda Bella Solid (solids are less costly than prints ; )

This little quilt turned out so darling. I love it! (I don't think it's too busy at all.) It's hanging on the wall above my computer and is just perfect with the freshly fallen snow.

Happy quilting, everyone : )
