15 Simple and Beautiful Quilt Patterns for Beginners

Have you been wanting to learn how to quilt? Not sure what patterns to start on? There seems to be an extraordinary number of quilt designs to chose from and for many people, the choices can be completely overwhelming. Even for sewers with a little bit of skill and experience, the idea of sewing an entire quilt can seem daunting.

However, a beautiful, well-made quilt is something that’s often treasured and even kept in the family for years. We should also mention that quilts make amazing gifts too.

We’d like to suggest a few tips for new and beginner quilters to help you decide which project you should start on. First, start with a quilt pattern that used large pieces of material or start with a small quilt, perhaps for a baby or child. Second, choose a simple design to prevent you from becoming frustrated and help build your confidence. Finally, watch some tutorials or take a beginner class, online or otherwise. Believe it or not, if you can sew a straight line and follow some instructions then you’ll be a quilter before you know it.
