Quick Quilting Projects Perfect for Summer

Quick Quilting Projects Perfect for Summer

It's the age-old quilter's dilemma: you feel like quilting but not like making a quilt. Sewing an entire quilt can be intimidating! Or maybe you have the itch to quilt but don't have the time, money, or fabric stash handy to make an entire quilt. We get it! So, what's a quilter to do? Make a quilted project instead!

Small, quilted projects let you scratch your quilting itch without all the commitment. Quilting a small project uses the same processes as making a big quilt, minus the time and energy. You can practice your skills and hone your muscle memory, so when it's time to tackle more challenging and time-consuming projects, you're ready!

We're huge fans of Sew Quirky's fun and whimsical quilting patterns. Quirky and cute, they practically demand you let your imagination run wild with fabric square choices. And they're small enough to be completed in an evening or a weekend!

Koala Pop!
If you love koala bears (and who doesn't??!!), you'll fall head over heels for Elton & Peaches. This applique pattern includes directions to turn these fluffy, cuddly Australian icons into an insulated lunch pouch, makeup, or toiletries bag (just in time for summer travel!), or a mini quilt.

Sprinkles + Feathers!
This pattern includes templates to make a matching pair of feathered friends enjoying their tasty Aussie treats — Vegemite and Fairy Bread! Yum...we think. Display these flying Aussies in a large poster frame without glass to showcase all the fantastic textures!

We recommend using quilting precuts for these quilting projects (and others). Quilting precuts are bundles of fabric cut into standard shapes and sizes using coordinated fabrics from a designer's collection, and we're "Jelly Rolling" in them (and Fat Quarters!)
