    Any Easy Patterns for beginner's?

    Do you usually do patterns only when making quilts or just create as you wish..I find them to be confusing myself and just make my own designs... Is there a website that has easy to follow patterns for beginner's?

      Also, go to the library and check out various beginning quilting books. I found TONS of options (and even some books I new I would want for my own library - was nice to preview them before buying).

      Easiest quilt, by far, for me was a RAG QUILT. I did not have to cut or sew super-exact (so no pressing, squaring up, etc). Also the Rag Quilt uses 1/2" seam allowance - easier the start with than the 1/4" most quilts use. AND I was able to use Layer Cakes and Charms pre-cuts, so I only had to cut my batting (which you don't really need if using flannel).

        Jenny's tuts are full of great, easy patterns. I would suggest a rail fence or disappearing 9 patch. They are both very easy to do.

            a rail fence is easy so is a 4 or 9 patch.

              Jenny Doan (on this site) has a LOT of tutorials on easy patterns and she walks you through them , step by step. Just click on Quilt Tutorials, on the top of this page. She's a great teacher!

                watch these tutiorals (a 4 part) with good information covered. It does not need to be a baby quilt. Use precuts 5" or 10". Using a 10" would end up a twin size and a little big for starting out. Your 5" BLOCKS quilt could end up a table or wall quilt.

                Here is one I made with out borders from a layer cake (10"). More or a large lap without borders.

                      I found Yellow Brick Road and the Double Slice Layer Cake quilts to be great for beginners.

                        When I use a pattern...by the time I'm 1/2 way through the quilt I can then claim it as my own pattern, because of all the mistakes. I prefer Jenny's tutorials because I can actually see someone making the blocks.

                        Here's the easiest one I've ever made...just sew charm squares together, add a couple of borders, quilt an X in each block, bind....and it's finished.

                            Those are some of my favorite baby quilts to make. 1 charm pack, borders. and done.

                              I am going to be making a baby rag quilt with flannel on both sides. Do I need batting between or just sew the top/bottom squares together without any filler?
