Summertime Charm

Summertime Charm is a One-Patch design — one shape is used throughout the entire quilt. Traditionally, One-Patch designs were created as charm quilts, never repeating a fabric. It uses a 60-degree triangle to create a dynamic and versatile design.

Summertime Charm was designed by Heidi Kaisand  — the Editor of American Quilt Retailer. It includes 4 size options and 3 different fabric kitting options.
