Cutting out new quilt using Moda Hushabye Charm Pack

I dropped in at Windy Moon Quilt shop after work yesterday looking for one thing and ended up with something else…a pattern that uses charm packs, which I already had at home.

Thimble Blossoms ‘pint-sized’ #129 designed by Camille Roskelley.

The quilt block itself is also known as Scrapy Patch, Whirlygiggles, Scrapy Cartwheels, Pinwheels, Whirligigs and so on.

I took out my charm packs (5″ squares) that I had and chose Moda’s Hushabye by Tula Pink….blues, pinks, greens and browns.

First I cut all the charms into four 2.5″ squares…along with an equal amount of neutral fabric, which I have many yards of ~ an ivory on ivory print.

Then you just cut and sew as instructed until you get a 3.5″ block looking like the wee one below:

One down, 79 more blocks to go! LOL!

When all put together, the quilt will be 40″ x 45″…great size for a baby quilt or wall hanging.

Materials needed for this quilt are as follows:

1 Charm pack (or 40 5×5 squares)
3/4 yard neutral fabric
3/4 yard for outer border
1/3 yard for inner border
1/2 yard binding
1-1/2 yards backing
batting
