Layers of Charm {Free Pattern}

Kimberly and her fabulous staff from the Fat Quarter Shop have brought us another new shortcut pattern...for free!!


I had to conceal my eager excitement to be contacted by the Fat Quarter Shop when they asked me if I would make a quilt from their new pattern.  I love all the shortcut patterns and have made three quilts from their Simply Fat Quarters book!

Kiss Kiss by Abi Hall and Moda Black Bella Solid

Since Valentine's Day was around the corner and I have always wanted to make one, I chose to make my quilt using Kiss Kiss by Abi Hall layer cake and a Black Bella Solids Charm Pack from Moda Fabrics.
Measures approx 58" square

I LOVE this quilt.  Simple to make.  Quick to finish.  SO much impact.


Button loves it too!
He epitomizes layers of charm, doesn't he?

I machine quilted it with a pantograph on Ole Betsy with the Love Doodle pattern by Patricia Ritter of Urban Elementz


 Kiss Kiss Aqua Hearts Galore for the backing and Kiss Kiss Black Dots for the binding...a very rare thing for me to use an entire line for everything. But I love how the pink had more salmon tones and the teal just popped here and there!


I have been trying to contain my excitement for a while and gave teeny tiny peeks on Instagram.  I'm still so excited about this pattern that I would love for you to make one too!


Layers of Charm Free Pattern is available here.
Layers of Charm YouTube Video is available here.

 I think this Riley Blake Fox Trails by Doohikey Designs layer cake would make an adorable quilt with the Layers of Charm pattern.  All you need add is a charm pack and you have a great quilt!
