Simple 9-Patch Quilt: Complete 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 Used:

– Charm packs – Border – Background square – Backing fabric – Batting – Binding fabric – Coordinating thread

Step 1: Decide on Your Nine Patch Layout

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.

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.

Step 2: Sew your 9 Patch Quilt Blocks

Place the middle square for each row of your quilt block and place it right sides together with the left-hand side square.

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. Chain piecing means not cutting the thread in between pairs. You snip the thread apart at the end of your ‘chain’.
