30+ Free Quilt Patterns to make with Charm Packs

Precut fabric, such as charm squares, makes beautiful quilts that are very popular with beginner quilters. These charm squares, cut into 5” x 5” come in packs and are a versatile size of fabric for quilters to work with.

These charm packs contain 42 5” squares or roughly 5/8 of a yard of fabric. Beginner quilters and seasoned quilters often use these fabric precuts because they come in coordinating colors from a fabric collection and all pieces work together to make a coordinated quilt.

Take a look at our page full of quilting books devoted to precut fabrics, like charm packs, mini charm packs, layer cakes, fat quarters and jelly rolls.

What can be made with charm squares?

The wonderful free quilt patterns below show a wide variety of fun projects that can be made from charm pack versions such as:

  • Baby quilts
  • Throw size quilts
  • Totes
  • Fabric corner bookmarks
  • Skirts
  • Little quilts
  • Friendship quilts
  • Earbud holders
  • Scarves
  • Lampshades 
  • Table runners
  • Wall hangings
  • Other beautiful quilts in larger sizes

An easy and stunning quilt can be made with charm packs. Some new quilters simply sew the precut squares of fabric together to make a patchwork quilt. However, these charm packs are versatile and can be made into a variety of styles.

The charm squares can be cut with a rotary cutter and sewn into half square triangles to form a very different pattern than that of simply sewing the squares together.

Look below for the four patch quilt tutorial as well as the beautiful quilts like the Charm Poppy Free Pattern from Sew Can She.  The Charming Christmas Quilt Pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop sews up wallhangings into 58” square quilts.

A quilter at any skill level will enjoy making these beautiful charm pack quilt projects. Scroll down to see the free patterns using charm squares! Which one will you make?
