This is the perfect place to get your feet wet with a quilt that speaks to you!

These quilts are a fun and fast way to make quilts for you to keep for yourself or to give as gifts (think easy baby quilt patterns for the next baby shower). What’s one of the best things about these quilts? Finding your next project is, well, easy! You’ll find all manner of quilts here from stash-busting quilts that help you thin out your fabric scraps, pre-cut quilts that make quilting that much easier, and quilts that require yardage.
