When I recently showed off my Head Over Heels quilt you asked for a tutorial and I finally got around to writing something up. This is not so much a tutorial as a how I did it. If you missed it, you can read more about it here.
For a 36″ x 36″ quilt, which I think is the perfect snuggling size for a newborn, like I made my newest grand-daughter, you will need:
81 ~ 5″ charms
1.5 yd solid fabric for the front
1.25 yd for the backing
4 1/2 yd of bias binding
Seeing how charm squares usually come in packages of 42, that works out perfectly. Otherwise swapped charms or even working from your scrap basket is viable option.
This is my story and how I did it using Liberty of London swapped charms.
I started by cutting 1/2″ off the top of each square.
