Fall Spice Bed Quilt

No striped fabric means you need just two templates to make this easy-to-sew version of Sort By Color. Quilt tester Karen Gilson chose autumn hues from the Chestnut & Vine collection by Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics for this bed-size beauty.

Go to the free bed-size quilt pattern.

Motley Crew

Designer: Jennifer Schifano Eutsler

Fuse a pack of spotted hounds on an eclectic and colorful assortment of appliqué foundations.

Motley Crew Color Option

Easy Squares Quilt

If a splashy floral is more to your liking than a pack of canines, replace each appliqué block in Motley Crew with an 8-1/2" square of your favorite print. Quilt tester Mary Pepper chose multicolor plaid and black-and-white print sashing and border fabrics to complement the florals, all from the Floralicious collection by Michele D’Amore for Benartex for this simple quilt.
