If you are a beginning quilter looking for free and easy quilt patterns, check out this list of our favorite beginner quilting patterns!

In this list, you’ll find a ton of ideas for easy quilts made from simple shapes or pre-cut fabric, like layer cakes and jelly rolls, too!

Here are the 7 steps to make a quilt:

  1. Pick a quilt pattern. You can choose one of the free and easy quilt patterns we’ve collected in the list below.
  2. Choose the fabric. You’ll want to shop for high-quality quilting cotton that will wear well over time.
  3. Cut the fabric. Following the pattern instructions, cut out the fabric pieces with a rotary cutter, mat, and ruler.
  4. Piece the quilt top. Sew the fabric pieces together according to the directions in the pattern. Make sure to sew an accurate 1/4″ seam allowance!
  5. Assemble the “quilt sandwich”. Once you’ve finished the top, add a layer of batting and the quilt back.
  6. Quilt the layers together. Using a walking foot or free motion foot, quilt through all layers of the quilt sandwich.
  7. Trim and bind the quilt. After quilting, trim the layers so they are even and square. Sew on binding to encase the edges.
