This pattern is a great way to quickly make up a pretty new collection or a bundle you have and really should use. It has also been a real workhorse for Community Service quilting. A friend cut up tons of my old scraps into the two sizes needed and made up kits for this pattern. Most of the time for these scrappy quilts, we just did a quick plain border. With precut pieces, we are talking maybe an hour to piece this top.

This first pattern is a charmer. It uses the 40 5" squares from your Charm pack. Plus an additional 1/2 yard each for the 4-Patches. In the cover model, the 4-Patches are intentionally a little blendy so they act like a background to the Charm squares. If you make a higher contrast 4-Patch, the darks will probably connect with the charm squares, creating a little different shape.
This little baby finishes 36"x 45" and can always be bordered for something bigger.
