Easy Quilt Patterns

Easy Quilt Patterns#

Are you looking for some quick quilt patterns? Maybe you are just beginning to quilt. Or perhaps you have a baby shower coming up and you want to give a present that is pretty, but will not take weeks to finish.

Well, you have come to the right place. The following easy quilt patterns look gorgeous and can be finished quickly. In fact, for a baby sized quilt, the quilt top can be completed in less than 24 hours.

1.Log Cabin

The Log Cabin is perhaps the best known of the quick quilt patterns. First, it is colorful. The pattern can use up to 13 different fabrics in a block. Next, it is easy. If you can sew a straight seam (and even if you can't) you can still make a lovely quilt from this block. Plus, it is quick. Using modern strip piecing techniques, you can easily complete the quilt top in less than 24 hours.

2.Whole Cloth

A whole cloth quilt is just one entire piece of fabric the same dimensions as a pieced quilt top. Actually, there are fabrics out there that look like pieced quilt tops. They are gorgeous and excellent practice.

Please do not think that a whole cloth quilt is not "real." As long as the quilt has a top, batting and a backing stitched together, it is a quilt. Whole cloth quilts are wonderful ways to practice. They are definitely worth investigating for the beginning quilter.

3.Four - Patch

You can't get much easier than a Four-patch block alternating with a plain square. These basic patterns allow you finish a quilt quickly. This pattern also lends itself to novelty prints.

4.Denim Rag Quilt

Denim rag quilt patterns are all over the web for good reason -- they are comfy and sturdy. Plus, now you can recycle your old jeans into something useful!

For beginning quilters who are scared of actually quilting the quilt sandwich or attaching the binding, this is a great first project. A denim rag quilt is rugged. It is simple. It is the go-to quilt for picnics and watching fireworks.

5.Rail Fence

A rail fence is one of the easiest quilts to make. It requires only three coordinating fabrics and very minimal cutting. It is also very forgiving if your seam allowances are off.

Can a beginning quilter make a gorgeous quilt? Of course. You just need to choose a pattern that displays the fabric and not your stitching. So, go ahead; choose one of the simple quilt patterns listed. You can't go wrong.
