Head Over Heels in Love quilt tutorial


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.

Liberty of London quilt charm squares by Sewfrench

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.

I started by cutting 1/2″ off the top of each square.
