Use Your Favorite Scraps for This Colorful Quilt!
The “Quilter’s Palette” quilt is a cheerful project for both beginning quilters and experienced ones seeking a fun project. This will go together relatively quickly, and use up some of those scraps in the process.
It’s made from mostly small squares, with a few half square triangles. If you can cut accurately with a rotary cutter and sew consistent quarter inch seams, then you can make this quilt!
We have a great tutorial for making those blocks with a lot of little squares. This ingenious method makes quick and accurate piecing easy. Find the tutorial here.
Needless to say, you can easily change the look of the entire quilt depending on the fabrics you choose. More subdued prints would give it a vintage patchwork look.
The finished quilt measures 65″ x 65″, making it suitable for a lap quilt or for naps on the couch. You could even drape it over a table.
The pattern, from Red Pepper Quilts, explains every step in detail.
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!
