Introducing - Cherish: A Quilt Pattern

I'm so excited to (finally) be releasing this quilt pattern!  The quilt finishes at 40" square and features square and diamond checkboards offset by sleek, brown polka dot borders.  One of the things I really love about this pattern is that it works equally well either using fabric yardage or 5" Charm Squares (my fav!!) -- instructions for both methods are included.

Fabric requirements are as follows:
Brown Print: 1/2 yard or 24 - 5” Charm Squares
Blue Print: 1/2 yard or23 - 5” Charm Squares
Green Print: 1/2 yard or 23 - 5” Charm Squares*
Brown Polka Dot Print: 1/2 yard
Cream Print: 1/2 yard
Batting: 44” x 44” piece
Backing: 44” x 44” piece or 1 1/2 yards

Note for using Charm Packs:  There are typically about 42 charm squares per Charm Pack.  I used 3 Charm Packs in Cherish Nature by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics for the sample  As different lines have different numbers of blocks per colorway, you'll probably need 2 - 3 Charm Packs to finish your version ... and you'll have some leftovers.  Feel free to use fat quarters or yardage to augment you supply of charm squares if you find that you're still a little short.

The sample quilt is off to welcome a sweet, little girl who's ready to make her debut any day now, but if you'd like to make the quilt to welcome your little one, you can purchase the .pdf pattern at either my etsy shop or my bigcartel shop.
