The Rainbow Rhythm lap quilt pattern utilizes fat quarters plus a small amount of yardage to make a striking asymmetrical design. Whether you have stacks of fat quarters waiting for the right project, or are looking for an excuse to buy more, this pattern is a great way to put them to good use.
The Baubles and Beads pattern shown above is as welcome as a spring breeze. Cutting instructions call for assorted yardage cut from bolts; you might like to try substituting precut 2 1/2″ strips from a jelly roll of fabric. Tracee, one of our graphic designers, used this pattern for Little Tee’s quilt as part of her special 2013 project, 36 Quilts in 12 Months – click here to see her unique version of this free Baubles and Beads pattern.
The easy-peasy Lemon Squeezy quilt pattern shown above features a fun and interesting quilt-as-you-go technique. You’ll piece and quilt this bright throw in one easy construction step, so when the piecing is done, the quilting is done, too…just add binding. It’s perfect for a super-fast gift quilt.
