Quilts Don’t Get Much Easier Than This

Vivid and Bold or Soft and Sweet, This Quilt is a Stunner!
Are you looking for a bed-sized quilt that will make a big impression while being quick to stitch together? This pattern may be just what you’re looking for.
The oversized Carpenter’s Square block is sized to fit a bed. The construction is super easy with no Y-seams. Plus, it will be beautiful in any color scheme.
This version, by designer Deonn from Quiltscapes, was made from a 10″ layer cake and has a lovely scrappy look. You can easily coordinate the colors to suit your tastes, even giving it a more colorful background.
The following quilt is being made in reds and greens for the holidays. It’s going to be a gorgeous quilt.
Note: Sharp-eyed readers pointed out that the quilt below is not the same pattern as the Carpenter’s Wife quilt shown above (Thank you. We don’t know what we were thinking!). Rather than remove it, we left it so you can imagine how beautiful the red, pink and greens would be made up in the Carpenter’s Wife pattern.

Large areas allow you to show off your quilting, whether you’re a free motion quilter or prefer to do straight line stitching.
The finished quilt is 93″ x 93″. You can adjust the size by altering the borders.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
