Charm Pack Superstar Quilt

by Julie Hirt


First, I apologize for the picture. It’s the only one I have with me and it was taken with my phone. As soon as I have time I’ll upload some more pics.

If this has been done with charm packs before I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure it’s out there!  I have a pretty large stash of charm packs and pulled one out and starting playing with layouts. Before I knew it I realized I could make a giant star quilt block using 40 charms.


This Superstar Quilt is easy and sews up fast.  Would be great for a quick baby shower gift. Or put 4 or more together for a bigger quilt.

Charm Pack (40 5″ squares)
24 white 5″ squares
4 white 9.5″ squares

Optional 3″ Border:
1/4″ yard border fabric cut into four 3″ strips


Place 16 white squares and 16 charms right sides together.

Sew corner to corner. Cut 1/4″ away from the seam on one side.  These will become your “points”.


Layout your pattern so you are happy with the color placement.


Sew into blocks:


Sew the blocks into rows:


Sew the rows together and… voila!  SUPERSTAR

And I can’t help it, but in my head I say “superstar” like Molly Shannon’s SNL character Mary Catherine Gallagher. Forgive me.

Oh, and don’t you just LOVE those fabrics?  It’s the only little bit of Dream On fabric by Urban Chicks for Moda that I had.  I was saving it for something special.
