I’ve always loved quilts, but when I lived in the condo I didn’t have but one since I didn’t have anywhere to put the rest. There’s something so “hygge” about going into the linen closet on a cool winter night and bringing out a handmade quilt to snuggle under! Now that we just moved into a house – with space to put multiple quilts – I can start thinking about pursuing those quilt patterns that have been on my Pinterest boards for years. And I’m being serious. . . . these exact quilt patterns have been on my boards for years! My goal is to make it through all of these patterns over the next year. We’ll see how well I do.
A few tips for you – get your fabric for quilting at Fabric.com. It’s my place to shop for all fabrics and I feel like they have great prices. Then grab your free quilting patterns at FreePatterns.com, another great resource. After that just grab your machine and thread and you’ll be in business!
What I love about these 10 quilt patterns is that they all look like something I could do. If you’ve seen those complicated quilts out there, while they are beautiful, I need to start with patterns that are a little more reasonable for my skill level. With the holiday season upon us, try these quilting patterns for holidays gifts. Because who doesn’t want a quilt for a present?
