Star Dance Quilt – Star Dance was part of a quilt along I hosted summer of 2018 with Coats + Clark. The quilt involves friendship stars, so lots of half square triangle practice. It’s a pretty great quilt if you are a beginner. You can find the PDF pattern here. See my posts on this quilt here.
A Dresden Quilt – This is one of my favorites and I’ve made this quilt a gazillion times. We are looking into doing a quilt along for it some time next year. The quilt is made up of large 4-patch blocks with the majority of those blocks featuring a Dresden plate. I’ve got all the video tutorials you need to complete this quilt. Find the pattern within this post and all the quilts I’ve made with it here. This is a great pattern if you are looking to opening yourself into the skill of Dresdens, which just so happens to be pretty easy. Tedious mind you, but easy.
Pineapple Parade Quilt – I’ve only made this quilt just the once, but it’s a fun one and if you are sitting on a hella lot of 2.5″ squares it might be just the quilt you are looking for. The pattern is within this post. This is another one I think would be good for beginners.
Orange Peel Quilt – This is a pretty old tutorial of mine and I’m afraid it’s showing its age a bit. Still if you can muddle your way through, it’s one of my most popular blog posts. The quilt uses larger squares and good old machine raw edge applique. I’ve made this quilt many times, but it’s been quite a while for me. You’ll find the pattern in this blog post.
Anthologie Quilt – Anthologie was another quilt along from 2017-2018. I just have to tell you that this one was AMAZING. I had such a great time, I learned a ton and I made dozens of friends that I’m still friends with. If you’d asked me last year, I would have told you that making this quilt once was enough, but lately I’ve been thinking about it again. I’ve got an idea and it would be perfect for this quilt. So I’m pondering. Until I decide to revisit this as a quilt along, feel free to get the patterns here. It’s a modern sampler and was my first attempt at one. I love this quilt and it’s very dear to me. There are video tutorials for every step of the way and a PDF pattern for each block/s.
Tumbler Quilt – This is an involved quilt and when I say involved, I mean INVOLVED. Once was enough for me. I do really really love the quilt I made from it though. Here is the pattern.
I am Enough Quilt – I am Enough is another special journey for me. I adore this quilt. It’s most definitely high on my list for my top fave makes. I’d tell you that a beginner can make this quilt, but be prepared to stretch yourself out of your comfort zone. There’s hand stitching involved if you want, but not if you don’t. It’s a very “be yourself” journey. It’s got some really cool blocks in it and many that I’d never done before. I always enjoy getting out of my own box a bit. I am Enough is a modern sampler quilt that was part of a quilt along. You can find all the patterns here along with video tutorials.
Quarter yards, fat quarters, half yards or whole yard cuts
That should be every quilt pattern on my blog that is free to you. If you know of another one that I’ve forgotten, just let me know in the comments below. Thanks so much for reading along and being supportive.
I do have one tiny question for you. I’ve been toying with the idea of creating “scrappy pattern packs”. The idea involves a set of easier quilt patterns grouped together in sets of 3-5 patterns, but priced the same as one of my usual patterns. The focus of course would be using your scraps. They would also be more basic patterns that more experienced quilters could probably figure out on their own, but a beginner would feel more useful. Is this something that might interest you? Should I full steam ahead or not so much? Just checking the waters. Thanks in advance if you answer.
