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.

The Merry Stars Quilt (free pattern!)

Merry Christmas in July… This is my present to you (because I love my readers so much!) – a complete pattern for the Merry Stars Quilt! I designed this quilt a couple years ago and made a smaller version for my family. At the time, Christmas was fast approaching so I was forced to just give you a brief ‘how I did it’ cliff notes version of the pattern. Inspired by these adorable Christmas fabrics from Ink & Arrow, I decided to make a bigger and better Merry Stars Quilt and finally write a real pattern!
