Using Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs and Layer Cakes

These pre-cut fabrics are a boon to busy quilters. They come in beautiful ranges of colours and patterns and make up into colourful quilts, runners and throws.

The single bed quilt above was made from a Jelly Roll of  Avant Garden from Moda. This is a real mixed bag of fabrics as it ranges from large flowery prints to dots and checks. It lends itself to a very jolly and bright single bed quilt which would look good in a child’s bedroom!

This throw was made from one Charm Pack of Moda’s batik fabrics. It is really attractive and was so easy to do!

This quilt was made from a Layer Cake of batik fabrics from Moda. It is such an effective way of quickly achieving a very sophisticated quilt. And the colours in this Layer Cake lend themselves to colour patterning in the quilt design.

A Christmas themed Charm Pack could quickly be made up into a runner, cot quilt or throw and only takes a short while from start to finish.  This would make a wonderful gift for someone or even a Christmas present to yourself!
