Quick Charity Quilts series--Four's A Charm

Not long ago a member of the family had twins. I needed to make a quilt for both a baby boy and a baby girl in short order. I came up with this pattern I call Four's A Charm to fit the bill. It's simple, cute, and comes together in a flash. It's a great pattern for a a charity quilt.


The finished quilt is 40" square. Detailed pattern instructions are available on my blog.

While it's fun to make baby charity quilts, sometimes bigger quilts are in order.  To make a 65" wide by 87" long twin quilt using this pattern, increase the total number of 4 patch blocks to 35 - 5 columns, 7 rows. Increase the width of the border to 6" (cut strips 6.5" wide).


Fabric requirements for this version are:
  • 140 - 5" squares
  • 3 yards sashing/border fabric (this is an estimate so please verify before you begin cutting)
  • 5 1/2 yards backing fabric (according to the Robert Kaufman Quilt Calculator)
  • 2/3 yard binding fabric
Thanks for reading and happy sewing!
