Simple Times Quilt Pattern

Posted on May 10th, by Amy in finished quilt, give away, pattern. 102 comments

Hi there!  Another finish for me – I hope you enjoy seeing another new quilt :)
I’m setting on a new path, I hope you will join me!  I have a pattern to offer you and I hope to have more in the coming months too.  This is a quilt that I originally designed to use my scraps from another project.  I call it Simple Times – 

This is a small lap quilt, 52″ x 52″ and can be made with a layer cake (10″ squares) and charm pack (5″ squares) or yardage of your choice.  Instructions for cutting and piecing the quilt top are included for both.

I pieced this top with Oz fabrics, and I love the bright colors!  I had two friends test it, Amber did a scrappy version, and Heather made her’s in Blush.  I hope that you can see the versatility of this pattern!

It is available for immediate download on my patterns page,  I set it up so you won’t have to wait for me to email it to you :)

ETA – Natalia quilted this for me – the flowers in there are a perfect match!

Natalia has kits available in her shop for this top your choice of Whimsy, 12 Days of Christmas, Tweet Tweet, Adoring, or Nautical & Nice – I think this would be a perfect Christmas quilt too – quick and easy!

**If you would like to win a copy of the pattern, leave a comment!  I will select a winner on Friday (if you happen to purchase and win I will refund the cost!) – Good Luck!

    Looks like a cool pattern. I love the larger 9-patches and the tiny little 9-patches are fun to find too. That is fun to see kits being made from your LQS.

    A pattern, that's a great idea.
    I make all of my quilts by creating my own "pattern", or running from a pattern. I tend to pick something very similar looking to this quilt…the less pattern looking the better. This would be a lot of fun to try. Thanks for the giveaway.
