Sewing quilts with Charm Packs and Layer Cakes.

Making quilts can be easy and fun using pre-cut fabric packs.  Charm packs are pre-cut squares you can get in various sizes usually 5 inches or smaller and layer cakes are usually 10 inch squares.  Using these speed up the quilting process so you don't have to spend time cutting and can get straight to sewing.  I used the 5 inch charm pack and sewed 3 rows of 3 and then cut squares the same size as my patch work square out of the solid black to create a larger square. 

This is a great way to get started sewing and quilting and practicing sewing with 1/4 inch seam allowances.
