The popularity of Charm Packs and other 5" square precuts stem from the fact they are affordable, easy to use, and a size commonly used in quilting.
If you’d like, you can make a quick and easy charm-pack quilt by sewing squares together into rows and then joining the rows into columns. But you may want to to branch out beyond basic squares.
"What size is a charm square? Usually 5″ x 5″, although you can also find packs of mini charm squares that measure 2½” x 2½”. Note that these dimensions apply to the precut charm squares found in today’s quilt shops. Just 5 years ago, most quilters would have regarded a “charm square” as being variable in size, depending on the particular charm quilt they were making.
What is a charm quilt? While the traditional definition of a “charm quilt” is a quilt in which every piece of patchwork is a different fabric, the definition has become broader since the advent of precut charm packs. Now quilters might also think of a “charm quilt” as one made from 5″ squares.
How many squares are in a charm pack? Usually about 40, but it depends on who assembled the pack. Charm packs assembled by fabric manufacturers, as opposed to your local quilt shop, usually include at least one of each fabric from a particular fabric line.
I need how many charm packs to make a quilt? That depends on the quilt. But if you want to match your charm-square collection to a certain bed size, you’re in luck. In Nickel Quilts, Pat Speth and Charlene Thode give instructions for making each of their charm-square patterns in three sizes, and they list the number of charm squares needed for each version. You get either lap-twin-queen or lap-full-queen options for every quilt in the book. And the materials lists make it easy to gauge whether you have enough charm squares on hand. For example, the queen-size version of “Northern Lights,” shown at left, requires 110 matching-square pairs, or 220 charm squares total. That’s about 5½ charm packs. The lap size requires 96 charm squares and the full size requires 176.
