Free Quilt Patterns: UPDATED 2019



Quilts, Quillows and Quirky Quilting Quandries:

What can you do with 2 yards of assorted scrap fabrics? Cut them up into 3 1/2" strips, continuously piece them together, or cut them into segments (shown above) and lay your strips into 45" rows.

Add a border or two and you'll end up with this simple scrap quilt that ends up being a wonderful 68" x 70".

What can you do with simple squares, cut to fit bars and strip (pretty much the same thing only add some simple applique) like hearts or stars!

Fast and easy!  Don't like winging it?  Need a quick and easy and a  free pattern?

Check out these wonderful sites for a total of more than 2,500 free quilt patterns for free downloading! I've added so many new links with so many free pattern downloads in each one - I could be at 3,000 by now! But I'm not going to count again!

And if you were looking for a specific quilt BLOCK and not a Quilt Pattern: check out my other huge list here:
