Woven - Quilt Pattern - Charm Packs

Here is the first quilt on the new layout/method which many Quilters have requested and have now been put into effect.

Woven is a beginner friendly quilt pattern. This quilt is also fast and easy to make in any size! Woven will be using 5" squares, commonly known as Charm Packs, Stamps, Threats, and Nickels. This quilt is also a great way to use up your quilters stash. =)

Today's Free Pattern will be given in the size for Throw. Finished Size is  
58” x 67”. This pattern is available in 5 quilt sizes; Crib, Throw, Twin, Full/Queen, and King which is available on my website as a PDF download

Fabrics shown are from Timeless Treasure Copper and Kona Coffee as background fabric. Backing and Binding are fabrics selected from Timeless Treasure Copper line. Glide thread was also used for quilting. Quilting done by me, Krystal Jakelwicz with Lets Quilt Something! =)

(Throw Size. Packs are calculated by 40 count. Sew with a 1/4" seam allowance. Binding uses 2 1/2" Strips. WOF is calculated at 40" wide.)
  • 5" Squares - 156 Squares (4 Packs)
  • 5" Background Squares - 39 Squares (1 Pack)
  • Binding - 1/2 Yard
  • Backing - 4 Yards
  • Batting - 66" x 75"

Piecing a Block:
  1. Select four mix prints of 5" squares and one 5" square background.
  2. Layout your block in the following order shown below. Sew your blocks together.

Forming your Quilt Top:
  1. Use a design wall to lay your blocks out accordingly. (You'll be flipping every other block.)
  2. First sew your blocks together to form rows.
  3. Lastly sew your rows together to compete quilt top.

Throw size you will be needing 3 rows of 13 Blocks in each row.

Finishing Your Quilt:

1.    First you’ll need to create your backing piece. Cut backing into two 72” x WOF. (Pieced Horizontal)
2.    Don’t forget to remove the selvages and piece them together with a 1/2” seam allowance.

3.    Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top to form a “sandwich” and baste together for standard machine quilting. Or send your backing, batting, and quilt top to a Long Arm Professional to be quilted.

4.    After quilted, trim away excess batting and backing fabric.

5.    You may use excess backing fabric to form binding strips if you have enough left over. Otherwise use Binding Yardage and cut binding strips at 2 1/2” x WOF.

6.    Piece binding strips together then use your favorite technique to bind your quilt.

Edge to Edge Quilting Ideas:

Below are ideas that I think would look great on this quilt with the fabric shown while taken in theme and colors. These Edge to Edge patterns are available to purchase at Urban Elementz in either paper or digital files for all types of machines. (www.urbanelementz.com
