If you are new to working with mini charms fabric, you're in the right place! Get up to speed with some of our most frequently-asked questions about mini charm pack fabric:
What size is a mini charm pack?
These bundles of 2.5” mini charm squares measure 2.5"x2.5" and often come with a pinked edge to prevent fraying. Most contain either 42 or 84 2.5 inch fabric squares, but the number of the fabric pieces found in mini fabric charm square packs varies by manufacturer.
How many squares in a mini charm pack?
When you are ready to buy mini charm packs for your next project, be sure to check the package labeling or product page to verify the number of pieces that come in your chosen fabric mini charm packs. Our curated selection of precut mini charm packs includes a variety of solid colors and printed fabric collections from your favorite designers, and in many mini charm packs for quilting, some prints are duplicated.
What can I do with mini charm squares?
Mini charm fabric packs can be used right out of the package to add keystones, accents, or other visual interest to your quilt project. We highly recommend pairing them with jelly roll fabrics, especially if you are using a solid color as sashing or background fabric (many manufacturers offer solid colors in both sizes make matching oh-so-easy!). Or, you may wish to cut 2.5 inch charms into smaller shapes to use in your quilt blocks.
How many mini charm packs do I need for a quilt?
The answer to this question will vary on the size of quilt you wish to make, and whether or not you will be using mini fabric charm packs exclusively. Since four mini charm packs is equal to one regular size pack of 2.5 inch charms, most quilters tend to make smaller-sized projects if they are not adding yardage or other precut fabrics. With that in mind, here are a few quick estimations:
Baby: 3-4 mini charm pack
Crib: 8 mini charm packs
Lap: 12 mini charm packs
Twin: 16 mini charm packs
