Easy 9 Patch Quilt – Quilt in a Week!

This first beginner quilt that you can finish in a week is a simple 9 Patch Quilt free quilt pattern using mostly charm packs and some yardage.

Materials Needed – Easy 9 Patch Quilt

– 2 Charm Packs – Border: (2) 4.5″ x 39.5″ strips & (2) 4.5″ x 46.5″ strips – Optional background square: 13.75″ square – Backing Fabric – Binding Fabric – Batting


The two charm packs I chose for this quilt had a good distribution of light, medium and dark fabrics. So I used that as my starting point.

Decide on Your Nine Patch Layout.

I first laid out charm squares with dark fabric for the center cross of the 9-patch blocks and put light fabrics in each corner.


Lay out 9 charm pack squares for each 9 Patch Quilt Block. Place the middle square for each row of your quilt block and place it right sides together with the left-hand side square.

Sew your 9 Patch Quilt Blocks.

Repeat for each row of each block – try to keep them in an order that makes them easy to put them back in the right place afterward. Chain piece these pairs of charm pack squares.


I decided to place my medium cross 9 Patch Block in the center with the light cross blocks on either side and the darker cross blocks on the top and bottom.

Decide on the layout of your Blocks.
