Easy Quilt Patterns

Looking for an easy Christmas quilt pattern. Make this star table topper. It's quick and easy! A twist on the popular triangle in a square star.

Now, I wish I could stitch up all the patterns that will appear on scrapish.com. But, unfortunately, time just won't allow it. ;-)

But, a very handy computer software program called Electric Quilt (R) allows me to generate lots quilt patterns to show you how the quilt blocks would look in a quilt.

Scrappy Quilting Style

Scrappy describes my style of quilt making and I call it scrapish (I made up the word, I think).

I like to quilt with big blocks and use many different fabrics in one quilt.

My fabric choices are usually from different lines of fabrics and fabric designers. Lots of shades of one color or many different colors.

The fabric may be a true scrap or it may be yardage.

I usually take traditional blocks and use improvisational, or free-form, quilting techniques to cut them up and/or piece them together.

My hope is that this results in a quilt top that is a cohesively cobbled masterpiece :-).
