What is a charm pack?
A charm pack is a bundle of 5" quilting squares of precut quilt fabric featuring an array of coordinating fabric from a designer's collection. Charm packs are a fast, fun way to make quilts come together like magic. There are 40—45 squares in a charm pack
OR 6” of 6 different fabrics (or more if you want more variety, see below)
• Sewing machine and manual
• 1/4” foot for your machine
• Walking and free motion foot if you have one
• Rotary cutter (with a sharp blade) mat and ruler
• Stitch ripper
• Thread
I did not use a charm pack for my quilt. I used scraps from my stash and I found a backing that just worked well.
You can start by choosing the fun backing then choose the fabric for the top, just make the prints you choose are small and aren’t too busy. Solids are fine too.
Where do I find charm packs?

Place mats
To make 4 placemats 21 x 13
2 blocks each 8” X 8” per place mats
For the blocks
If need a total of 22—5” coordinating squares either scraps form your stash, a charm pack, or 6” of a variety of fabrics (you will get 8—5” squares out of one 6” strip of fabric)
12” of a white/cream or contrasting background will give you exactly enough for the four placemats but you my want to get and extra 6” if you want to make extra for variety.
Borders 2 1/2” wide
2 strips width of fabric
1/2 metre total
Backing 23”x 15 “
Either 1/2 metre or if you are using fat quarters and don’t mind your placemat backs being pieced
If you want the backs all the same and not pieced you’ll need 1 yard for the backs (and you’ll have extra left to use for binding or blocks on the front
Binding—each placemat uses a 2 1/4” wide by 80” strip of fabric
1/2 metre or you can piece scraps together if you are using fat quarters

I used a variety of fat quarters for my placemats— I started with the patterned orange print and chose fabrics that I liked to go along. I have different colored borders but you may want to have the same colour all the way around. I just wanted to us up my scraps!
