Doubly Charmed

Doubly Charmed
Above is Charmed Corner Beam (40″ x 48″).  I Love this pattern. It’s from Studio 180 Design and is called “Doubly Charmed”! You use the same set of 5″ squares for two quilts. You cut the center beams from the squares for the first quilt and then use the cutaway triangles for the side triangles in the second quilt. Two beautiful quilts from one set of squares. Below is Charmed V Block (47″ x 59″).

Lift and position the ruler and locate the line labeled “Center Beam Trim #2”, trim.

Save the side triangles for the Charmed V Block Quilt.

2nd cut.  Move the cut triangles off to the side and flip the strip over and fold the fabric strip deep enough to accommodate the slanted cut, trim.

Per the instructions in the pattern, trim down the side triangles saved from the corner beam quilt and construct your units.  This is a companion pattern for the V Block, Corner Beam, and Squared2 Tools from Studio 180 Design.
