Layers of Charm

I am so excited because today I finally get to show off this beautiful quilt I made using the Fat Quarter Shop's free Layers of Charm Pattern.




 When the Fat Quarter Shop contacted me to see if I wanted to participate in this blog hop, I instantly agreed and immediately knew which fabrics I wanted to use - the Mimosa collection Layercake by Windham Fabrics and a Kona charm pack in Coal.  They work so beautifully together!





Not only does the Fat Quarter Shop put together a lovely free pattern - you can also watch this video where Kimberly gives you all the quick and easy instructions.  This pattern makes a quilt that is 57.5" square and it is so very easy to assemble.  (The pattern also includes instructions for sizes ranging from baby, to table runner, all the way to king!)





As I was making this quilt, I realized I have not shared a great way to mark your solid fabrics.  I use a Hera marker (mine is by Clover) to make a crease in the fabric versus drawing a line with a pen.  You can also see I made a second crease 1/2" over from the first.  This is a second trick I want to share.




You can stack about 3 to 5 layers and mark them all at once.  Above you can see how the line shows through the layers.  This makes marking squares so much faster!  And charm packs are so wonderfully lined up, it took me no time at all to have all the marking done.



Then you just follow the crease to sew.  You can see how easy it is to see.  This was actually the bottom square on a stack of five I marked at once.

For the second trick, you are going to sew on both lines.  (Note that the second marked line is away from the fabrics you are sewing together.)




Once you have sewn on both lines, you trim in between the sewing and the pieces you would normally discard are now sewn together.




When these pieces are all pressed open, you have a stack of HSTs that can be used to embellish the back of your quilt or used in a second project.



I turned mine into these nine fun pinwheel blocks!

But I digress - back to the lovely Layers of Charm quilt!



I quilted it with a wonderfully textured echoed floral design and used a stencil to quilt a Fleur-d-lis in the gray space.  The wonderful fruity colors in this line really bring summer to those wintry gray days.






This lap quilt was fun and easy to make and the pattern is a great way to use a layercake. And if you don't have one in your stash, there are many  available at the Fat Quarter Shop.  They really have a wonderful selection.

A huge thanks to the Fat Quarter Shop for including me in this blog hop and for this new free short cut quilt pattern.  You guys are awesome!


 


Not only am I excited about this finish, I am also excited to be able to give one lucky reader a $25 gift certificate to do a little shopping at the Fat Quarter Shop - Yep, I'm having a giveaway!

I have saved lots of Fat Quarter Shop patterns to try. Does that count? LOL. I like this pattern and I am going to make it very soon. I have lots of charms and this is a perfect way to use them. Thanks for sharing.

Ruth said...

I love that Mimosa fabric - looks fantastic with the grey! Just completed LOC myself and made Charm Pack Cherry and Fat Quarter Fizz!

Andrea York said...

Yes I made the Fat Quarter Fizz quilt with Lexington fabrics and it came out very nice!

Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl said...

I have never used a FQS shortcut quilt pattern, but after seeing so many fabulous versions of this pattern today, I think it would be fun to give it a go! Lovely finish, and great tip for marking the lines to sew.

Sheryl said...

I have a jelly roll jam just waiting for me to baste and quilt

Margie said...

I've never used one of their patterns but have saved this one thinking it might be a good one for a baby quilt. Made 6 Queen and bigger last year so this year my word is "smaller"! thanks for this opportunity.

Bari B said...

I have actually never used the free patterns and didn't even know they had them! I tried finding them on the website and it took about 20 minutes before I was able to find the patterns. Maybe now that I know they are there I will use them!

I love this pattern and plan on making a couple of baby quilts with some 20's-30's repro fabrics. They will be perfect!

Thanks for the chance to win, but especially for the great idea for baby quilts!

Jasmine said...

How fun! I have made this one and a Layercake lemonade. I love your use of the pinwheels.

Allison C said...

I haven't, but this one is cool and looks really easy. I like that the scraps can make easy HSTs too.

Ariane said...

I haven't made one before but I like this one!

Anne said...

I am so glad you asked this question. I have never tried one and I have no idea why not. There are always last minute quilts to be made and I will look into these shortcut patterns.

Pat said...

No! I haven't used one of the FQS's Quick patterns but I am definitely heading over there to check it out! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sorcha girl said...

I've used the Mini Charm Mix pattern from Fat Quarter Shop to make a table runner. Clear directions--I love the pressing arrows--and quick to complete. This pattern also has additional sizes listed. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway.

Sarah @ Berry Barn Designs said...

I LOVE this!!! I wish I had used some brighter prints for mine, but such was the math fabric available : P This is my second time using their shortcut patterns. I used the Jelly Roll Jam last year and it came together so quickly!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I have watched many of the you tubes, but never have made a pattern yet! Thanks for the giveaway.

Gill said...

I love your quilt - I haven't made any FQS projects yet but I'd like to make this one!!

Katelyn @ Sing While Crafting said...

I have never used a Short-cut pattern. Though I do have fabric to make their jelly roll jam quilt. This pattern is SO good though. I think it is next on my quilting list.

shayne said...

I have never tried one but they look great!

HeatherK @ A Reformed Heath'n said...

Thanks for sharing. Love those colors with the dark gray. I haven't actually sewn a short-cut pattern, but I definitely need to get a couple ready to go for quick gifts. Thanks for sharing!

Cherise Towrr said...

I've tried their Jelly Roll Jam pattern and it turned out great! I love it! I also like the color combo you chose for your quilt. Thanks for the giveaway! cherisetoweratgmaildotcom

Lynda said...

I have not yet made one of their shortcut patterns, but I have participated in two of their BOM's and if anyone wants to try a BOM for the first time this is the place to start! They do a great job.

Renee said...

I've not made one of their shortcuts quilts yet but this one may be my first. I've got some fabric in my stash that I'd like to use up for charity quilts for a children's camp.

Izzy said...

I love your version! I haven't yet tried any of their shortcut patterns, but this one is really, really tempting!

Ramona said...

I love your use of colors in this quilt! Beautiful. I'm not sure I've tried their shortcut patterns. I can tell you that I will be sewing this pattern! I am sewing along with the Snapshot quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

Rachel said...

I love the Fleur-d-lis that you quilted in the grey space! I have not yet used one of the Fat Quarter Shop's shortcut patterns. Thanks for sharing!

Beth said...

I have tried several. The layer cake and charm square one. They were fun and fast!

Vicki H said...

I haven't used any of the shortcut patterns. This looks to easy not to try for a quick quilt. Thanks for sharing.

Elita@Busy Needle Quilting said...

I love this quilt! I've bookmarked most of the shortcut quilts for future last-minute-gifts though haven't made one yet. This could be the motivation. I really love the fleurs de-lis patterns! :-) Thanks for the giveaway!

delaineelliott said...

I LOVE your version of this quilt! I am sad to say that I have never used one of their shortcut quilt patterns, but this one is great motivation to try it. Thanks!

Please click on the delaineelliott above for my email link.

Vicki in MN said...

I just ran across this pattern at another blog-I really like it! And you picked such wonderful colors for it!! Yes I have used their patterns before, love them!

CJ said...

I have plans for almost all of the FatQuarterShop's free patterns - set aside fabric and made notes but I haven't made them yet! :0 Your quilt is really cute. :)

Elaine said...

I have printed every shortcut quilt pattern in anticipation of great things! Can never wait to see what's next!

Crafty Coffin said...

I haven't made one yet (no surprise, I've only made a handful of quilts) but I have a layer cake and I think I might have to try this pattern out!

Veronika said...

I'm in the works of making the moda love quilt- love these shortcut quilts!!

Debbie said...

LOVE this quilt! I've saved & printed out some of the Fat Quarter Shop patterns, but haven't had the chance to use them yet. I know I will as I have plans to make lots of quilts this year. Thanks for the chance to win!

Spring Robinson said...

I plan on using this tutorial!! Great work on yours and I love the extra project!

valentinegirl said...

This looks so cute and as soon as I saw the pattern I was hoping some of the bloggers would put those extra hsq to good use as you did!!

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

I just love your version, especially using the Kona Coal! Beautiful! I also made this pattern, but haven't tried any others yet.

Stephanie said...

I just used the jelly roll jam one a month ago and loved it. I have this one saved to try also. I have that same layer cake you used so I am thinking copy cat a quilt for my daughter! Thanks so much!

Sew Stitching Cute said...

You chose such a bright and cheery fabric line and I LOVE this! I love this pattern period because it is so quick to put together a quilt when needing one quickly... no matter what size! This might be one of my go-to patterns for a quick gift! Even quilting didn't take long! I really love this fabric line and might need to snatch it up myself!

Anonymous said...

Have used jelly roll jam I and II, Charm Pack Cherry [numerous times], etc. Love Kimberly's creative patterns for precuts!! This new pattern appears to best one!!

Marly said...

Mimosa and coal look great together. I haven't made a FQ shop pattern yet, but am all set to go with the Mini Charm Mix.

Barb N said...

Hi, Cynthia! I've made a couple of quilts with Charm Pack Cherry pattern and love the way it turns out. This is a fun pattern, too. I adore your quilting in the gray diamonds - perfect!

greeneggs said...

I have never bought any of these pre-cuts like layer cakes and jelly rolls, so,I've never checked out these patterns. Would love to give it a try, though.

Maria Slayman said...

I have not tried one of their patterns. After seeing your quilt, I see that they could be a lot of fun

Charlene S said...

I have not used their patterns but I have admired them. Now that I have use of a 10" square die, I will be trying some.

Lisa Marie said...

I've collected the patterns and have them ready for when I need a quick finish. I love that they do patterns in addition to being a great place to buy fabric.

Sandra Walker said...

I received a hard copy of Charm Pack Cherry in with one of my orders, and I love it; I haven't made it yet, although I plan to!

Patti said...

I have a bunch of shortcut patterns pinned and I've printed out a few. Now I need to sort my stash and see what I can pair up. This is one pattern I'm looking forward to making!

Betsy said...

I have not. Will have to check them out.

Sylvia Anderson said...

I must have my head in the sand, because I've never seen a shortcut pattern, but I'm all for anything with the word 'shortcut' in it, so I will check them our asap. Thank you so much for this giveaway opportunity. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

I love the charcoal with the bright colors! I've never used a short cut quilt pattern, but it seems like a great idea, especially for those quilty gifts that sneak up on you!

Your quilt is delightful! I love the way the gray makes the other colors pop. I made a Charm Pack Cherry quilt using the Fat Quarter Shop's pattern. Love the Fat Quarter Shop! Thanks for the chance to win!

dortha said...

Love this pattern. I love your quilt. The gray compliments the layer cake squares.

Jean said...

Love your quilt, and it is great to find another quilting blog! What a great day! I've used several of the FQS patterns. They are lots of fun and make wonderful gifts (fast finishes on top of everything else), and I always look forward to the blog hop for inspiration. Thank you for the giveaway!

I have saved several but have yet to make one. However I love the look of this pattern. Especially love the coal with the bright colors on your quilt.

I don't believe I have but I've certainly purchased fabric from them many times :-) I just put up a layer pack of Waterfront Park to make this pattern - now to decide what color charm pack to use - hmmm. thanks for the tute/pattern/giveaway!

Val's Quilting Studio said...

I haven't used any of Fat QUarters short-cut patterns and have to admit, I didn't even know about them! I've bookmarked this post as I always shop with them...but obviously need to start looking at their patterns!! So excited for the give-away and thanks for sharing the link to their pattern! Love the Mimosa matched with the gray!!!

Cecilia said...

I have saved them, but I haven't made one yet. :-). I really like the look of your quilt and will be adding this pattern too. Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway.

Diana @ Red Delicious Life said...

I love how your version turned out, especially the quilting design you chose. I haven't made a FQS short-cut pattern yet, but this is definitely on my list for a layer cake I've been holding onto for a while. I just want to make it a bit larger so I think I'm going to use the extra 10" squares and possibly add a border. Thanks for the giveaway.

OhioLori said...

LOOOOOVE your Quilt! & Fabrics you used! Gorgeous!

My Daughter & I are making the "Charm Pack Cherry" quilt pattern...mine is in Sewing Box...and hers is in Bobbins & Bits!

I haven't used any of their shortcut quilt patterns. This will be the first. I have a layer cake in mind.

suzanprincess said...

I have not used any of their patterns, but I'll use this one for my Project Linus group. It looks to be quick to make and great for boys or girls, and by varying the size good for any age.

Joanna @ Riddle and {Whimsy} said...

Love the saturated colours in your quilt! Looks yum!

I've made a bunch of the shortcut quilts. The Jelly roll jam and the Layercake Lemonade, and this one as well :) The Charm Pack Cherry is one I've been wanting to make for a while but haven't gotten around to it yet!

gibbygoo56 said...

I've watched many of Kimberly's tutorials. And I love her style. I have yet to use one of the shortcut patterns. I do love your choice of fabrics in this quilt. I would probably never have chosen this collection but seeing it makes me want to buy it. Beautiful quilt.

I'm a newbie and haven't had the opportunity to try one of FQS' patterns yet. I'm really excited to try this SOON!

Hi! I have not made any FQS Short Cut quilts, but many of them are on my to-do list.

Just stopping by to say hello! The quilt made from the Mimosa layer cakes is so wonderful and eye grabbing. It reminds me a bit of the 10 minute block. I made one each for my sons! I am doing some catching up since I have been up to alligators with business!

I have not ever used a quilt pattern. I just started sewing a few months ago. But watching tutorials and following patterns has made a huge difference for me.

I haven't yet, but I really want to try the Layer Cake Lemonade. I love how you turned your left overs into fun little pinwheels.

I have not tried any of the Short CUt patterns yet but I LOVE the quilt you just made with the HST squares and I like the idea of making the pinwheel mini quilt with the off cuts. Great idea.

Oh I really like this and the quilting on it is the perfect addition. Yes I've made their Charm Pack Cherry quilt and am looking forward to making a few of their other free patterns. I'm off now to print of this new one. Thanks for the chance to win.

I have never used that type of pattern, but am eager to give them a try! Thank you so much for the giveaway!

The pattern reminds me of one of the first quilts I ever made, it sure would have been a lot easier made this way though :)

I love what you did with your leftovers! I've never made a FQS shortcut quilt, but I did make their Deckade the Halls quilt from a few years ago and I love it!

I don't think I have used any of the patterns from them. This looks great!

Your quilt is lovely. I haven't used one of their patterns yet but I think this one is a winner and I'm going to give it a try.
