Simple Charm Square Quilt

I'm continuing with my charm filled March.  This time I'm revisiting my Simply Charming Quilt.  

 For a 47" x 52" quilt you will need 85 charm squares.  This quilt is perfect for a beginning quilter.  I use it when I'm teaching youth.  I have made it a couple of times with the 12 year old girls at my church.  It turns out perfectly for them.  There are no seams to match up.  So it is very forgiving.

I needed a quilt Quilty Hug for a man. So I used 126 squares, a combination of a charm pack I had and leftovers I found in my pre-cut scrap bin.  I still need to find border fabric.

I've made this into a YouTube tutorial video.  And for those of you who subscribe to my email, you will receive a PDF version.  Not on my email list?  Sign up today so you don't miss out.  

Here is the video.  If you like it, I hope you will like and subscribe to my channel.  


  1. That is a nice pattern for making something quick and to teach a beginner quilter. I like that there aren't seams to match.

  2. Good job, Em. Always on the lookout for "manly" quilts!

  3. Watched your tutorial, looks to be an extremely easy and quick quilt. I had never heard the term "kissing cousins" related to quilting, you made me smile on that one.
