Well I found this great tutorial a couple of weeks ago and I have lots of charm packs.

I pulled together about 6 of charm packs and separated them into lights and darks, removed the heavily blue fabric. I wanted to make a red, green and yellow quilt in honor of all the cool appliqu I saw at Moda University last week.



I picked 2 focus fabrics which I used in the center block of all 20 block (10 of each green). I love scrappy but I like to draw the eye with something that is consistent. When I put the blocks together I did a pattern (D= Dark, L= Light, F = Focus)

D L D
L F L
D L D

Then I sewed together super simple 9 patches



After you sew them up you cut them apart (my picture of this did not come out) and then you switch them around.



I trimmed the new blocks down to 6.5 x 6.5. Then I sewed it all together again. This is the tutorial I used.

This was a great quick quilt and I love to trim stuff down cause my blocks are rarely the same size.

your quilt is so awesome, the color combinations or fab!!!  Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial, I've been wanting to try quilting for a long time but have been quite intimidated and I think this just might be the perfect first time project for me!  I hope mine turns out as great as yours did  Smiley

Great color choices. Thanks for explaining this, I was too scared of piecing everything together to try this before. I didn't realize you sewed then cut to make the smaller stripes. Cool beans! Hopefully (when I can do mine) will turn out as well as yours did.

 Very nice. The quilt guild I belong to did this about two months ago. I still haven't finished mine, need to do borders and quilting. I used all red and white prints with the center square black. They called it a tossed nine patch. I'll post when I'm done.

That is absolutely gorgeous!  I love the colors and the pattern!  I was incredibly impressed with your talent when I first saw it and was very surprised when I saw how easy it was!  I think those are the best kind of quilts - the ones that look hard but are actually easy!  You did a great job!
