Refraction is so simple, you can easily complete it in a weekend.

This quilt can easily be completed in a weekend. All you need are two charm packs and three and three-quarter yards of coordinating yardage for the background. The instructions include directions to make half square triangles from squares, so you can turn the charm packs into half square triangles in no time at all.

Use two charm packs from the same line for a uniform look. Feature charm packs from two of your favorite fabric lines from the same designer to get a more varied but coordinated design. For a scrappy look, use this pattern as a stash buster and clear out all those five-inch squares.
