Flirty Charms

This is another quilt that was finished a few months ago but never appeared here on the blog.  I started with a couple of Flirt charm packs and a bunch of Kona Snow and this was the result:

Charm quilt idea from A Bright Corner

I shuffled all of the charms, stacked three or four together and cut them like this:

I then sewed two halves together using two different prints and making sure two reds were not together, two blues not together, etc.  These got sewn into long strips.  Is this making any sense?

I alternated the strips with long strips of Kona Snow, and the width of the Kona Snow strips are all different.

When I started quilting this I began with kind of a loopy meandering with a few “loose” hearts mixed in.  But my always helpful boys decided that the “loose” hearts looked more like little bums.  So I made sure to keep my hearts looking more like real hearts.

The finished quilt measures 53" x 60"


  1. That's funny! Leave it to boys to say the loopy hearts looked like little bums. Another cute quilt!

  2. Great idea, the stacking, slicing and joining is very successful. I love everything about it.

  3. Beautiful Andy! I have made that block before but set it differently : )

  4. Hahahaha boys! Charming aren't they.

  5. LOL, a boy's perspective of the world!
    Your quilt is wonderful!
