Fake Rail Fence Quilt

I saw a picture of a quilt in a catalog the other day. It looked like a Rail Fence block but it was actually made from a single fabric. The fabric looked like wood slats. I have some fabric similar to that so I tried it.

No Bake Jolly Bar Quilt Free Pattern

 I liked this pattern so much I made 4 quilts from it! Three of the quilts went to nieces and nephew. The fourth one was a Quilt of Valor. This free pattern is from The Fat Quarter Shop. They sell pre-cut fabric cut  in 5" x 10" rectangles. This is basically a 10" square cut in half once. I used layer cakes for the kid's quilts. For the Quilt of Valor I cut rectangles.

This quilt is fast to cut and fast to piece. Easy too!

Puzzle Box Free Quilt Pattern Download

 I was attempting to organize my large pile of scraps and one of the categories I made was width of fabric pieces. These pieces range from 3" to 17" in length. I decided to cut everything into 2-1/2" strips and start making scrap quilt from the strips.

This is Puzzle Box by Christa Watson. Christa's company is Christa Quilts.  I have made several quilts using this pattern. Here is one I made for a veteran.

The pattern uses 2-1/2" x Width Of Fabric (WOF) strips and is a great way to use scraps. You will need 80 strips to make this 64" x 80" quilt.

Happy Quilting!

The Lemonade Quilt - Free Pattern Download

This pattern is from Benartex (Kanvas Studio). The quilt finishes about 60" x 75".  It uses 27 pre-cut 10" squares along with some additional yardage. I made this several years ago for the shop to showcase a fabric collection from Kaffe Fassett. I didn't take a picture of that quilt.

The Corner Four Patch Quilt

The Corner 4-Patch block finishes at 8" and is easy and fun to make. There is a 4-patch unit in the corner. The rest of the block consists of a 4″ square and a 4″ x 8″ rectangle. Use scraps, fat quarters, yardage or a combination of all three. Use strip piecing, patchwork piecing or both to construct this unit.
