Free Easter Quilt Patterns: Updated 2016

Here's a fun list of Easter pattern links..not just for quilts, and quilt blocks but a few super cute Easter crafts, too!

And remember making an 'Easter' quilt can be as simple as making some four patches.... and added some bits and pieces ...just from some scraps you might already bunny, chick, or any pretty Easter fabric!

I used some scraps in Beatrix Potter prints, as shown above, and made this cute but easy, baby quilt and included a little soft fabric book for a quick gift! This little baby quilt is in flannel, and these where all the scraps I had in these no outside borders, and very simple style..but it is soft and special and still so cute! And best of all, the sweet little one who received it, absolutely adored it!
