Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This simple, thrifty quilt is so fun to put together! Use scraps, or a charm pack and layer cake to quickly make a quilt top! I originally had planned this quilt to use scraps from another quilt - it's a lot of squares but the various sizes give it lots of interest!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 52" x 52" a great lap quilt size!
  • You can easily make this larger if you like too! Just add fabric.


  • 1 Layer Cake
  • 1 Charm Pack
  • 1/2 yard of binding fabric
  • 3 1/2 yards of backing fabric
  • 60" x 60" piece of batting
  • If you are using yardage instead of pre-cuts, you will need 3 yards assorted fabrics.

You Will Also Need:

Hi I'm Amy Ellis! I have always loved fabric, and the creative process, that comes with creating with it. I learned to sew garments as a girl, then taught myself to quilt about 12 years ago. As an author, I love to inspire new quilters to dive in and create beautiful, simple quilts! My book is titled: Modern Basics; Easy Quilts to Fit Your Budget, Space and Style.
