    Re: Looking for an easy pattern

    All My X's-- see tutorial by Missouri Star. For charm packs. Need 4 identical 5 inch squares to make each X. Would even be easy to sew by hand it is basically just snowballing corners.

    (I am making this quilt right now....and it's easy to do!)

    3. Disappearing Hourglass 78" x 78"

    4. Prairie Flower Quilt "79" x 89"

    5. Friendship Star "78 x 88"
    https://youtu.be/ZrUOLYUmWb4

    6.Flock Of Geese "74 x 85"
    https://youtu.be/Sour9ossDvU

    All of these are FAVORITES of mine......Hope this helps you! No# 1 and No# 2 are my favorite suggestions!

    I also tried to find quilts that measured the size of a twin bed as well. If your daughter has a larger bed, then you will have to increase the size of any of the quilts you decide to make!

    My go, easy pattern when I need something fast is a jelly roll race quilt, also know as a 1600 quilt. You can put a top together in about an hour or two, and it makes a great lap size. If you want it bigger, add borders.

    I've made 2 of the double slice pattern, easy and turned out very pretty. I haven't made the 10" tumbler quilt, it's on my list. Good luck with your decision.

    Oh, I like this. I just got my order from M* and the fabrics are busy, but beautiful and this pattern would show them off nicely. Thanks for posting.

    Re: Looking for an easy pattern

    Here’s another one. I always have a difficult tome cutting my layer cakes and try to preserve the “layers” as much as possible. I found the “Easy Layer Cake Quilt” on Craftsy, and am using it to make a queen size quilt for my dd with a beautiful Eliza’s Indigo by Moda.
    It’s not free �� but it’s not expensive ��. I put the link below if it doesn’t work, but here’s the lonk

    I also vote for the large tumbler. Once you get used to sewing them together it goes real fast. I made one.

    One way to extend the layer cake is to find a good neutral to go with it. Maybe a solid like Kona "cream" would be good. You could alternate with every other tumbler being a "cream" block.

    The only reason I would not consider the half hexie is that there are some stripe fabrics and it would be hard to match it up. I think small busy prints work best with it.

    You could also get 4 of the 5" tumblers out of each square. If you like the look of the 5" tumbler better than the 10" one.
