Easy Safari Party Charm Square Quilt and Pattern – Beginner Quilt Pattern

I am so excited for my stop on the Safari Party Fabric Tour.  I love this charming fabric and its beautiful prints so I decided to make an easy beginner friendly Charm Square Quilt Pattern Tutorial for you all.  In case you have been living under a rock, the fabric is called Safari Party and is designed by the super sweet Melissa from The Polkadot Chair.  I really adore all of her fabrics, and have made quite a few projects with them before.  Derby Style is still one of my all time favorites – especially these cute t-shirt dresses I made for my girls.  I still have a quilt from this print waiting to be finished as well.  One day all my WIPs will be finished, lol.
