Fast Scrappy Four Patch Baby Quilt

This little quilt top came together really quickly by using a short-cut for making four patches.  I learned the technique a few years ago and thought I’d share it for those of you who need/want a fairly quick project.

To make the top exactly as pictured you only need one charm pack (pre-cut 5 inch squares) and a little white fabric and solid color fabric.

I actually only used 20 squares of patterned fabric from one Charm Pack (normally there’s 42 squares in each pack) then cut 20 more 5″ squares from different colored solid fabric that I thought would go well with the charm squares.  But you could certainly just use all squares from the charm pack and it would work just as well.  My personal preference was to break up some of the pattern with some solids.

The finished size for the pictured top is 40″ x 35 1/2″.

      Thanks! I’m considering adding some short video bites into the tutorials, but not sure if I have time for video editing! Appreciate the feedback!

    What a clever way of cutting before you sew. I am definitely going to try this method. I have a charm pack ready and waiting. Such fun! Tx for sharing.
