This free baby quilt pattern is an easy way to make baby boy quilts from a charm pack. Choose a charm pack of fun prints and then frame each square with aqua sashing to create the Framed Charm Squares Baby Quilt for the next baby boy in your life. This quilt pattern would even look great in a young boy's room and could be made in a neutral color for a unisex baby quilt or a pink charm pack for a baby or young girl. The square geometric pattern makes it a super easy and quick quilt to sew up as a baby shower gift.
