Quick and Easy Patterns for Relaxed Quilting

Are you ready for some sewing time when you can create without worrying about every stitch being exactly perfect?  Many times quilters think that patterns have to be complex to look great and that is so far from the truth. With all the rush of the holidays I know I'm ready for some simple yet stunning quilt making.    

I have 3 patterns to recommend that are perfect for relaxed and easy piecing.  All feature straight seams which makes the assembly amazingly simple.  

These quilt designs are also great if you are helping someone learn how to quilt or improve their quilting skills and confidence.  


Peacock Proud has been a popular pattern this year.  My version is made with Island Batik fabrics.  It uses a roll of precut 2-1/2" strips and some coordinating yardage.  

The pattern is available as both print (shipping included) and pdf digital download versions.


Black & White Express is the perfect pattern for showcasing pretty fabrics.  From the photos you can see how the look of the quilt changes as the fabric changes.  I made this scrappy version using Island Batik fabrics. 


The original version is more contemporary in black, grays and red.  Pick your favorite colorway and stitch away. 

The pattern is available in both print (shipping included) and pdf digital download versions. 

Stacked Deck is designed for precut 10" squares so it has both a scrappy yet coordinated look.  My version is made using Island Batik fabrics and captures the winter sky so beautifully. 


The pattern is available in both print (shipping included) and pdf digital download version for your convenience. 


I'd love to see the version you make.  When sharing on social media, be sure include #masterpiecequilting
