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!

  1. Congratulations! Very cute pattern. I am sure that you will find your new venture very exciting, as will we!

  2. 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.

  3. Love the pattern and your choice of fabrics. It does look easy to put together, so it would be a great gift item.

  4. LOVE it – hey, block quilts are my best friends – and it would be an easy way to use up my boatload of scraps!

  5. Your quilt is AWESOME! I love the pattern as it is simple, but beautiful! Thanks for sharing it, I need to make one as well and will send pics when I do!!!

    hugz, Pam

  6. Ooh la la…very nice on the eyes :o). I have all the Oz fabric needed for this great pattern…thanks for the opportunity to win!

  7. Your Simple Times Amy is simply stunning. I love it in the reds.
    Plaease include me for a chance to win.


  8. This is a great pattern! I love seeing patterns that make me think, "Hey! I can do that!" instead of being too intimidating.

  9. Good luck on the new venture Amy. It's a lovely pattern, thanks for the giveaway, if I win I'll be making it in Japanese fabrics :)

  10. Amy, thanks for your blog. I am a grandma and I am brand spanking new to quilting. But, I am bound and determined to learn. So, far all I can seem to do is buy fabric. I love your quilt and all its bright colors. I love it is perfect for me to get started.

  11. You certainly have been a busy lady Amy! I would love to win this pattern – it looks very cute!

  12. I love it! Do you think it could be made to fit a twin sized bed? I've got Oz fabric that I was going to use to make a quilt for my daughter when she moves in to a big girl bed. This would be perfect!

  13. Of course! The pattern calls for 16 blocks but 30 would be 67 x 81" or 35 would be 67 x 94" depends on how long you want it to be :)

  14. Cute! You know, I have a charm pack and a layer cake of Hello Betty languishing in my stash…so I would love to win this pattern!

  15. Saw Amber's version of your quilt @ One Shabby Chick -simple and stunning at the same time. I just saw French General's new Christmas fabric and this quilt would be perfect for snuggling around the fire at Christmas time.

  16. Love this pattern, so simple but different. Way cute. Would love to see the pictures of the kits she has in the other fabrics done up.

  17. Best Wishes as you travel on your new path. Simple quilts are nice quilts. Please enter me in your drawing. I have my blog favorites in favorites, so need to read your "reader" suggestions. Thanks. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  18. Wow good luck with your new journey in life, cannot wait to see what other patterns you produce. Love this quilt, soooooo effective. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Congratulations on the new pattern! I love versitile simple patterns…great to expand the creative use of fabric scraps!!

  20. 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.

  21. How wonderful all the colors looks together! At first glance, I see one pattern and then another pops up! Thanks for the give-away!

  22. I love this pattern. What a great giveaway. Wanted you to know that I follow both your blog and website on Facebook. Love your tutorials too!

  23. I LOVE this pattern. Lately I have been in love with patchwork so this pattern is right up my ally. LOVE IT!

  24. All three colour ways look fabulous! I have sooooo much fabric calling out to me to make it into a quilt! This pattern would be perfect!:)

  25. This is so pretty! I love the other two versions too. I'm going to have to get this pattern – but if I buy it now it will just make me feel guilty that I'm not attacking it right away. Maybe in a few months.

    You are doing such amazing things – you are truly inspiring!

  26. A very cute quilt – I love that it is so scrap friendly with all the different sizes of blocks.

    May have to buy it if I don't win it – lol.

    congrats on your new path,
