Square Quilt

I’d never worked with charm squares* before this.  But I had a pile of charm squares from a while ago. I think maybe there were 36 squares in the pack? Designed by Barbara Brackman for Moda, they have a sort of William Morris-ish Liberty print kind of print on them. 36 squares that are 5’x5′ doesn’t make much of anything, so the charm squares sat around until I got the itch to piece and quilt something uncomplicated.

Schnap, the co-quilter, wants you to know that she participated in the composition of this quilt.  She is an expert at unevenly off setting things.

* What are charm squares? They’re 5 inch by 5 inch squares of fabric, sold usually in a pile that coordinates with each other.  I used to call things like these ‘swatches’ but I guess ‘charm squares’ sounds more, well….charming.

    Love this! I’d love to know the name of the quilt pattern. I’m not good at figuring these things out myself.
