9 Easy Bandana Quilts to Inspire You

There Is So Much You Can Do With Bandanas!

Bandanas are great for quick quilts. There are so many lovely colors available and many ways to quickly stitch them together into quilt tops. Plus, they’re 100% cotton and very inexpensive. Amazon has a nice selection of bandanas, which you can see here.





Just be sure to wash the bandanas first as they do shrink and and the colors tend to bleed. In fact, you may want to use color catcher sheets whenever you wash the quilt, asĀ  they may continue to bleed.

We could not find patterns for many of the following bandana quilts. It won’t be hard to stitch up your own without a pattern. Simply follow the layout of the quilt in the picture. Most use full bandanas, or cut them into triangles (2 or 4 per bandana).

There is a tutorial for this bandana chevron tablecloth (or quilt top) by Dresden Carrie. Be sure to look it over as it has some good tips for working with bandanas.

Bandana Star Quilt

There are so many ways to make a lovely quilt from bandanas. Choose one or two colors and let the bandana pattern be the star, like in this table cloth from Martha Stewart.

Combine bandanas of many colors for a scrappy look.

Change up how the bandanas are pieced together. Use the bandanas whole or cut them into pieces.

Change up the overall shape, too. Sew several small bandanas end to end for a table runner, or sew several into a square or rectangle for a tablecloth or bed quilt.

Make a baby sized quilt, a king size, or any size in between.

There are so many options! We hope this inspires you to get creative and make your own bandana quilt.
