Mini Charm Chocolates Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop


I'm so excited to share my Mini Charm Chocolates Quilt with The Good Life Fabric by Bonnie & Camille! I love this quilt so much! It is perfect for mini charm packs or jelly rolls or layer cakes or charm packs! Fat Quarter Shop is sharing the Mini Charm Chocolates pattern for free with multiple sizes: table runner, crib, lap, and queen.

I chose to use Bonnie & Camille's The Good Life fabric with Moda Crossweave. I love this fabric sooooooo much! This was my first time sewing with Crossweave and it is fabulous! It adds such wonderful texture!




Ready to gather up your 2.5" squares and start your Mini Charm Chocolates Quilt! Be warned...once your start sewing your quilt...you will want to make your quilt bigger. I started with the lap size and then super sized it with extra mini charm packs.  My quilt measures about 70" x 78".




Supplies:

1. Bonnie & Camille: The Good Life Mini Charm Packs (or 2.5" squares cut)
2. Moda Crossweave Black on Black
3. Binding- 0.75 yard
4. Backing - 5 yards
5. Batting - Happy Cloud Silky 80/20...love it!

Here is a close up of the binding....super love! I chose to stipple my quilt with Dove Aurifil...it was perfect!



I chose to use The Good Life fabric for the backing! I love the florals!



I also used Fat Quarter Shop's new batting: Happy Cloud 80/20...it is fabulous!!! I used 505 basting spray to baste my quilt and it adhered so nicely to the batting with NO wrinkles! The batting feels sturdier than Hobbs 80/20...more like Warm&White...but a bit fluffier like Hobbs 80/20. It is the perfect combination! I will definitely be using this batting again for my quilt as I love it. Plus it is super affordable and even on sale this month an additional 20% off! Time to stock up :) Happy Cloud Batting is also available in 100% cotton, wool, and bamboo! Check it out here.




I'm so glad I was able to sew along with Fat Quarter Shop and help share their newest pattern: Mini Charm Chocolates! I love all the free patterns and videos that Fat Quarter Shop shares! Thank you for another awesome pattern!!!

  2. Oh my, your quilt is simply sweet. I too love the texture and depth that crossweave gives when used as a background.
