Free Beginner Quilt Patterns

Free beginner quilt patterns are great to use when learning to quilt. They usually have only one or two quilting techniques in them. They are also very useful for the more experienced quilter who is looking for a quick project to make.

All the free beginner quilt patterns are free in this part of my site so if you are unsure if the pattern is suitable just click through to the pattern and see if it meets your needs.

For the beginner quilter there are several things to remember if you want your quilt to look as good as the one on the pattern cover.

Fabric

Fabric selection is crucial when making a successful quilt. Today you can buy pre-selected fabrics in either:



Fat Quarter Bundles - a collection of fabrics each approximately 18" x 22"

Fat Eighths Bundles - a collection of fabrics each approximately 9" x 22"

Jelly Rolls - 40 strips of fabric each 2 1/2"wide and 44"long

Charm Packs - 42 5" squares - often includes duplicates of some prints

Layer cakes - 42 10" squares - often includes duplicates of some prints

These are all great to use!

A great site to visit to familiarize yourself with these and purchase fabric is the Fat Quarter Shop. Dealing with smaller pieces of fabric is more manageable and less time consuming. You can also purchase these at your local quilting shop.

Seam Allowance

Every seam allowance is sewn at a 1/4" unless otherwise stated. Take care to cut your fabrics along the straight of the grain and then the seam allowances will be easier to achieve.

Essential Quilting Tools

  1. 1/4" foot for your sewing machine - this will ensure your seams are accurate
  2. Cut out your fabric using a rotary cutter, cutting mat and ruler
  3. Sewing Machine in good working order
  4. A new sharp needle for your sewing machine
