30+ Charm Pack Quilt Patterns

I'm always caught up in the charm of those itty bitty precut 5 inch squares. I love the variety of fabrics and the smaller price tag of charm packs. I have a very hard time not purchasing them if I love the fabric collection.

But now I've got a stash of precut fabric and need to figure out what to make with them. 

If you're also a charm pack lover, then keep reading. You will find over 30 quilts you can make that feature charm packs, plus I've included some bonus mini quilts and table runners.

I have separated the post into two categories. First there are the free quilt tutorials. They are followed by quilt patterns for sale. 

A great way to use up those precut squares is to make a smaller quilt. Many of these patterns are small quilts that you can finish in a weekend.

I hope you find some new projects to use up your collection of charm packs.

Charm packs are sold anywhere quality quilting fabric is sold. My local quilt shop doesn't have a large selection. So I purchase them online. 

My three favorite online quilt fabric shops are:

Also, I recently got a new sewing machine that I am so happy with. If you're in the market check it out.


Yes! Simply cut your favorite fabrics into 5 inch squares.

You can cut up fat quarters, layer cakes or extra fabric leftover from other projects.


Let's get started with the free tutorials. 

Below is my very first quilt pattern that uses charm squares.

I've just recently begun my adventures in quilting. I've created two quilt tutorials so far. (The herringbone quilt and the puff quilt) And you know what? They are by far the most time consuming blog posts I have ever created.

So I have come to appreciate the talents of quilters who sell their patterns. And I want to showcase their hard work.

Below are lots of charm pack patterns you can buy.
