"Inside Out Mini Quilt " by Malka Dubrawsky

The inspiration for this patchwork quilt happened while Malka was at her ironing board, pressing a log cabin block on the wrong side. Struck by the visual interest created by the raw edges and stitching lines on the wrong side of the quilt, she designed this little patchwork quilt to celebrate what's usually hidden. The patchwork quilt's freshness springs from a combination of improvisational piecing; simple, graphic prints and solids; and, of course, the texture of those raw edges. Create your own patchwork projects using improvisational stitching and raw edges when you download this and five other free patchwork quilt patterns.

Free Patchwork Quilt Pattern

"All Tied Up " by Jeannie Palmer Moore

Over a year ago while visiting her sister, Jeannie helped her drag an old wicker chest from her studio. Her friend Tita had dropped it by in hopes that its fabric contents could be put to good use in art quilts. One by one they pulled out hundreds of very retro, bright, colorful, beautiful, stunning, and hilarious men's ties. (Tita's father was an interior designer and he had left quite a collection.) This got Jeannie thinking about using these old articles of clothing in her modern patchwork quilt designs, and inspired her to come up with this fun process. Learn how to use old clothing and neckties in your own patchwork quilts when you download this pattern plus the 5 others in this free collection!

"Stacked Coins Quilt" by Aimee Raymond

The colored blocks in Aimee's inspired patchwork quilt resemble a stack of coins, and only look complicated to put together. In this article, she shows you how to make a wonderful quilt patchwork design using precut jelly rolls and sashing strips. Jelly rolls are collections of 2.5" x 44" inch strips of fabric, usually themed around a season, color, or design. Often these sets will come with 40 strips of fabric, but can vary. Learn how to use jelly rolls to create a fast and fabulous patchwork quilt when you claim your free patchwork projects collection.

Free Patchwork Quilt Pattern using Strip Piecing

"Hexagon Baby Quilt" by Malka Dubrawsky

This patchwork quilt pattern is a fun stash-busting project that uses a modern approach to traditional piecing. To give this patchwork pattern a contemporary feel, Malka divided each hexagon into three supersized string-pieced sections. The strings lend a scrappy quality while her color choices have modern appeal, packing a powerful visual punch to the finished quilt patchwork design. Along with the patchwork quilting pattern, you will find instructions for learning strip quilting and strip piecing techniques.
