Free Quilt Patterns

Learn to sew your first quilt or your hundredth quilt with free quilt patterns from SewCanShe!

All of my free quilt patterns include step by step instructions (and sometimes video tutorials) so you can start sewing a beautiful quilt top. This list includes lots of easy quilt patterns,  baby quilts, Christmas and holiday quilts, throw quilts, fat quarter quilts, jelly roll quilts, half square triangle quilts, applique quilts, free quilt block patterns, table runners, and more!

Whether you are a beginner quilter or your skill level is way up there, let me provide some inspiration for using those fabrics you have stashed away! All of my patterns and tutorials have detailed instructions with step by step photos. Use your own fabrics, rotary cutter, ruler, and mat and away you’ll go!

All of the quilt patterns and quilt block patterns in this category are free, the templates (if needed) are free too. The downloads are indicated in bold text so you won’t miss them.

What inspires you first…  fabric collections or the quilt design? I must admit that I’m drawn to bright colors of fabric in precuts like jelly roll strips, fat quarter bundles, charm packs, and layer cake stacks. You’ll notice that many of my new quilt patterns are designed for precut fabrics, scraps, and fabric squares.

Make sure you take advantage of the search box in the sidebar to search the archives for a specific pattern or quilt block.

Easy Panel Quilt with Irish Chain Blocks – Free Pattern!

Have you ever bought panel fabrics at the quilt store because they are so cute or beautiful and then you need ideas for sewing them into a quilt? Look no further! I fell for these darling Halloween fabrics that included a panel with rectangular images, and then I designed an Irish chain quilt that perfectly complimented the panel. Each panel image is framed to set it apart. This also gives you some flexibility in case your panel pieces are not the same size as these.

AND this free quilt pattern uses strip piecing for the small parts to help it go together super fast!

And guess what – this free quilt pattern is fat quarter friendly too!
