Easy Quilt for Beginners

August 6, 2017

I was inspired by Pinterest to come up with some kind of easy quilt pattern for our Threads of Love quilting group at our church.  We have a new session coming up in a couple of weeks and I was asked to lead this one.  I don't think you can get any easier than this one.

 The size makes it nice for a toddler or baby quilt, a wall hanging, a table topper, or a smallish sized lap quilt.  It measured out at 40x52 or 41x53 including the binding.

 I used all scraps on this blue/teal one, so I did have to piece the back.

 Stripe bindings are my favorite.  I love how it adds something a little special to a quilt.

I quilted the above with the Floriana pantograph.

 I made another one to show the group what it would look like with grey for the background.  This was for a friend as a dining room table topper.  I attempted to use the colors she has in her dining room.

Again, made mostly from scraps although I did purchase two fat quarters for this one. 

 Used the Filagree pantograph on this one.



 Another striped binding.




 If you need a quick and easy quilt for yourself or a gift this is perfect.  Here is a link to the pattern.
