Charm Saturday

This quilt, entitled Charm Saturday, is the perfect weekend project.

This style of pattern is called a tessellation, which is a repeat of the same shape in an interlocking design. Hexagons, clam shells, and popular “plus” sign quilts are all examples of tessellation quilts. When you play with the value of the fabrics you use, it really brings out the pattern, as you can see in the pattern above. Tessellation patterns look complicated but are often simpler than they appear.

Grab your favorite charm packs (and layer cakes) and try your hand at this one. You can find the pattern here.

Happy quilting!
