Elizabeth Hartman of oh Fransson! is starting her Charm Squares Baby Quilt class this Saturday at 10 am. In this 3 week class, she will take you all the way from rotary cutting through binding the quilt. Using the walking feet on the Berninas, you will get to explore quilting with this incredibly talented woman. She just announced over at her blog, that she has a book coming out in October! It will be beautiful, educational, and inspirational I am sure and I can not wait to get more bits about it and see it up close. Elizabeth had a chance to send these pictures and note over for the blog about her upcoming class:
I like to recommend my Charm Squares Baby Quilt as a perfect first quilt project. Working with 5″ charm squares is an easy introduction to patchwork piecing, and the forgiving piecing layout means that, even if your seam allowance is a little off, your finished quilt will still look fabulous. In the process of completing this project, students will learn about rotary cutting, patchwork piecing, making a quilt sandwich, simple machine quilting, and making and sewing binding. So, not only will students end up with a wonderful finished quilt, they will have learned basic quilt-making skills that can be applied to future projects!
You will get a ton of information and skills about quilting in this class, and it would make such a nice little Mother’s Day gift for you or your mom wouldn’t it?

Hi! I am a first time quilter and I really love this charm square baby quilt pattern. For my first project, I would like to make a lap-size quilt (about 53″ x 68″) using this pattern. Do you think this would look good as a lap-size quilt? Also, as a beginner, I am not certain how to change the size of the quilt and calculate the change in fabric. Do you have tips for how to do this?
Hi there, I believe that the best way to get more info on this is to contact the teacher directly via her blog. Her blog is oh, fransson and she is quite helpful. I think the pattern may be available there as well. Have a great day!
