Easy Layer Cake

Laura Reardon and her team at APQS Boise-The Quilt Crossing created a twin-size quilt that goes together in just a couple of hours thanks to the convenience of a “layer cake” stack of 10-inch squares and easy sashing strips. Don’t have any “layer cake” stacks? No worries…dig out that fat quarter bundle you’ve been staring at for inspiration and get to slicing!

Completed Woven Treasures quilt

Woven Treasures

APQS dealer Heidi Kaisand of Hen & Chicks Studio created this pattern that goes together quickly and easily. No need to cut out dozens of rectangles and squares individually. Long strips are sewn together and then sub-cut into smaller units that are cleverly arranged to create the illusion that the fabric strips are woven together (using the assembly diagram included.)

Daffodil Punch

APQS Educator, Dawn Cavanaugh’s free quilt pattern uses jelly roll fabric and was inspired by the contrast between bright spring flowers and the winter-bare earth from which they sprout. Grab yourself a jelly roll and a couple yards of your favorite colors and make a spring garden quilt that you can enjoy any time of year.

T-shirt Quilt

APQS Dealer Elizabeth Persinger shares her T-shirt Quilt pattern. T-shirt quilts are relatively easy to put together – in fact, the hardest part for you may be getting the t-shirts from the intended recipient without giving away the gift itself. You might need a trusted accomplice to help you select shirts from their stash.

Forest Snowfall

Forest Snowfall

APQS Dealer Myrna Ficken found inspiration for this pattern in the boughs of evergreen trees dusted with snow. This is a great stash-busting project if you’ve got a bin of green fabrics tucked away. Using fabrics with different values adds richness and depth to the evergreen trees.
