All 4 of these patterns were previously published in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine, and they are among our readers’ favorites. Great looking king size quilt patterns are hard to find, but we’ve gathered 4 of them here for you – free!
This free eBook from Fons & Porter provides you with all of the instructions, photos, and diagrams you will need to create your own version of each of these king quilts:
- By the Big Lake:
With traditional patchwork units organized into big 28″ quilt blocks, you only need to make 9 blocks to create this king size quilt! This pattern calls for fat quarters and fat eighths (18″ x 20-22″ and 9″ x 20-22″ cuts of fabric), perfect for quilters with a large pre-cut stash. This quilt was inspired by an antique quilt seen at the International Quilt Festival in Houston.
- Scrap Flair:
Streamlined is the operative word for this king size quilt pattern. Have 3/8 yard of each of 36 fabrics cut for you, and you’re ready to follow the easy cutting diagram for all the patches in this modern quilt. It’s the best of both worlds…a scrappy quilt pattern that takes advantage of layered cutting and a quick piecing plan to create a stunning but fast king quilt.
- Crossed Kayaks:
Traditionalists will love this graded-effect king quilt, made with the classic Crossed Canoes quilt block design. A striking pieced border takes the patchwork action all the way to the quilt edges. Graded color placement creates a medallion effect in this quilt, giving a focal point to any king bed.
- Empire World:
The classic Trip Around the World quilt pattern gets a king sized update in this beginner-friendly quilt pattern. Large fabric squares (5”) are easy to handle and they “grow” a big quilt quickly. You could even use precut fabric charm packs for this design with a little extra color placement planning! A simple narrow border gives the patchwork in this quilt a suitable frame.
