Day 7 - Just One Charm Pack Quilts Book Hop

Welcome to the 7th day of the Just One Charm Pack Quilts book hop!  I hope that you are enjoying a more in depth look at each of the book quilts and are loving seeing how others are putting their personal spins and touches on the designs.  

Today, I will be sharing the One-Eyed Monster and the Baskets quilts from the book.  In addition to these quilts, Katherine will be sharing her version of Ships Ahoy and Heather will be sharing her Cat's Eye quilt.   

I'll be sharing sneak peek images of each of their quilts so you can visit each of their blogs to see the full quilts and learn more about their design and quilting processes.  (Links to purchase the book are at the end of the post).


One-Eyed Monster was the first quilt I finished for the book, way before I ever submitted the book proposal to Stash.  The design uses hourglass shapes and a little square shape for fun block that reminded me of cute little monster.  I created my own charm pack for this quilt by cutting 5" squares from blues and green fabrics from my scrap bin.  I finished the quilt with a small scale bear claw quilting design.

Delia of Willowlark Quilt Studio made and quilted the second version of One-Eyed Monster for the book using Crescent by Sarah Watts from Ruby Star Society for Moda Fabrics and a tangerine solid for the "eye".  I think that this version has more of a floral feel to it which is beautiful and I love the quilting design Delia used.

Baskets comes together easily using half-square triangles and squares pieced together in four large blocks. In this version, the Basket blocks are oriented in a circle, but you could change them to all face inward, outward, or in the same direction for a different look. This first version of Baskets used Desert Bloom by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics.

Ruth made the second version of Baskets for the book using Lollipop Garden by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics with Moda Solids in Eggplant for the pot.  Carol did the quilting on both versions of Baskets.

Katherine of Sew Me Something Good is the queen of scrappy goodness.  She can combine so many prints and colors together and get a cohesive and beautiful composition (whereas I would have just wound up with a messy, disjointed looking quilt).  She applied her scrappy magic to Ships Ahoy, check out her blog and Instagram for the full reveal.


Heather of Quiltachusetts is an amazing quilter, quilt pattern designer, fabric designer, and fellow Stash author.  I am always excited to see her in person at QuiltCon and love following along with her new patterns and wonderful longarm quilting on Instagram.  Check out this sneak peak of Cat's Eye she made using her Road Trip fabric collection for Paintbrush Studios and hop over to her blog for the full reveal.

Along with quilting, Heather also has an ever-expanding line of quilt patterns and has branched out into textile designs with two new fabric collections with Paintbrush Studio Fabrics.  She has written two books, Quilt Modern Curves and Bold Stripes and Design Make Quilt Modern, both published by Stash Books.


Each pattern in the book uses a single charm pack, an additional fabric (called fabric A in the pattern) and a background fabric).  The book is the Hamburger Helper for charm packs, stretching one into a full quilt :)

You can grab a copy of Just One Charm Pack Quilts on Amazon or get a signed copy in my shop.  

As a bonus, if you purchase a signed copy from my shop, you can get one additional free stand alone pattern (digital or printed) by adding the book and a stand alone pattern ($12 value) and then using the coupon code HOPPATTERN (through the end of the hop 7/29) during checkout.

See you tomorrow!!


  1. Each one is so unique and beautiful. It’s a quilting wonder to me how a 5” square can be so versatile and magical.

  2. Sew much fun!!! We all love charm packs and these quilts give so many options for using them!!!

  3. I have been really enjoying seeing all the quilts and learning more about each design!

  4. I agree with Yvonne! It's been wonderful to see all the quilts in your book, Cheryl and the various versions made by others on this tour. Who knew there was so many fun ways to use charm packs?!

    Thank you so much for creating such fabulous designs to inspire to use those pretty fabrics we all like to stash!
