    Default Fat quarters to charm packs

    I want to use fat quarters in place of charm packs. I’m thinking I can get 12 5” squares from one fat quarter, is that about right? And 24 fat quarters would be more than enough to replace 4 charm packs?

    Absolutely, and with more than plenty to spare.

    You won't need to cut up all the FQ unless you want to.

    There are approx 160 charm squares from the 4 packs. Cut 8 squares from each FQ and you will have 192 charms. Good Luck!

    If you cut all of the FQ you'll have the equivalent of 6 charm packs with 36 extras.

    Thank you all! I thought so, but just wanted to make sure. I’m not crazy about a few of the fat quarters, so I can save them for later.
