2 charm packs-Soiree by Lila Tueller
1 1/2 yards white fabric for sashing/borders
1/2 yard fabric for binding
1 1/2 yards of fabric for backing
batting that measures 44″ x 55″
please note: 1/4″ seams are used throughout this project.
Cut each charm in half. This will yield 144 “coins”. Each will measure 2.5″ x 5″. (You will use all but 12 coins for this quilt.)
Sew coins together. I found it very helpful to match the pinked edges with pinked edges and straight edges with straight edges when piecing.
Make 5 strips of coins. Each strip is made with 22 rectangles.
Cut 6 pieces of white fabric 3.5″ wide x 44 1/2″ long for the sashing.
Your quilt top is done!
For the back…
I love adding a patchwork detail to the back of my quilts. It takes a bit more time, but it’s a nice way to tie in the design from the front to the back.
Join 22 coins together and press.
From the backing fabric, cut one piece 36″ x width of fabric. And one piece 15″ x width of fabric.
Layout as shown and sew together. Press.
And the back is done, too.
On this quilt, I did an all over stipple in white thread.
I just love the one strip of patchwork on the backing. Wash and dry your quilt for that soft crinkly goodness.
The finished quilt measures approximately 41″ x 50″.
This is a fun + quick project. I made it from start to finish in about 2 days. It’s perfect for a last minute baby gift.
