Great for When You Need to Finish a Bed Sized Quilt in a Hurry!

Coordinating strips of fabric are all stitched together to make the top for this charming quilt. Smaller squares of the same fabrics are pieced with white for the border, providing a lovely finishing touch.

Choose 14 prints in your favorite color combination for your own version. You might consider changing the accent white to a complementary color, as well.

Quite Contrary Quilt

This is a super easy quilt to make, even for beginning quilters. Just be sure to keep the strips from bowing (learn how here) and you’ll have this completed before you know it.

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!
