Getting Creative with Charm Squares
Do you consider yourself a traditional or modern quilter? There’s probably a place in the middle that each of us can fit into. While I love lots of the patchwork blocks we’ve sewn for decades, it’s not what I want to quilt today. Usually I’ll modify those blocks to suit my quilting style. This has led me to creating my own patterns. It’s what I call, Mastering Creative Charm Square Secrets!
So here’s the real question: Are you looking for some creative and inspiring quilting techniques for your next charm square quilt? This video below, Mastering Creative Charm Square Quilting, is all about transforming your fabric in a unique and artistic way…while using a traditional pattern. Though I’m not sure a disappearing 9-patch is considered traditional, it can still be ‘dressed’ up a bit. Check out this video and you’ll see what I mean.

A Surprisingly Simple Charm Square Quilt
This is my Confetti Quilt Pattern and I love how it turned out. While it’s a simple disappearing 9-patch, the color placement makes a very distinctive block. When the blocks are assembled into a quilt top there’s a secondary ‘confetti’ pattern that adds an artsy touch that I love. It’s such fun to personalize a pattern to suit your personal taste. This pattern gives you that same flexibility to create the quilt you really want!

Charm squares are a great choice for an easy quilt. But what are the other options? It can take more than a bit of creativity to modify a pattern. Yet sometimes the only change needs to be fabric choices and placement. That’s exactly what I’ve discovered with this block.
