6 Free Charm Pack Quilt Patterns to Stitch Up

Posted by on Jan 26, 2014 in Quilting | Comments


Pre-cuts are really useful and loved by many quilters. These stacks and rolls of fabric are machine cut and wrapped together to make your quilting process a bit easier.

A charm pack is a collection of fabric that has been cut into squares that measure 5” by 5”. They provide an inexpensive way to get a sampling of all the prints in a fabric line or collection. Each charm pack should contain at least one square of each print, and some of the prints are oftentimes repeated. Many manufacturers sell pre-cut packs, so the number of charm squares in the set might vary depending on the company. Be sure to check the information provided on each set to make sure that you have enough fabric!

Do you have some charm packs laying around that have yet to be used? Why not stitch up one of these FREE charm pack quilt patterns from Craftsy’s awesome indie designers?
