Whatever quilting project you have in mind, there are free quilt patterns out there for you. Here are a few ideas you can explore. Have fun and happy quilting!

Floral applique table mat

This is an interesting addition to your tablescape. You’ll want to add matching coasters too. Large, hand-quilted stitches should give this project the personal touch it needs.

Rectangles quilt

Go for a charming combination of rose petal pinks and sage greens or for pale blues and greens to make for the perfect bedroom quilt. If that doesn’t do it for you, check out prints with polka dot prints and put them all together for a colorful quilt that can add warmth and cheer to any room.

Customized mouse pad

Look for free quilt patterns to help you turn bits of fabric into a wonderful, customized mouse pad. You can keep this for yourself or give them around to friends and family as tokens or gifts. They’re sure to appreciate the gesture.

Baby quilt

Check out patterns you can use to put together a modern baby quilt. Go with soft, pastel colors for the perfect look. Your baby will look cute cuddling up with this on the bed or couch, the BHG says.

Wall hanging

Want a bit of inspiration? Go for patterns that can help you put together wall hangings with intricate designs of flowers or geometric shapes. That’s going to be an awesome addition to your private space.

Table runner

Want to improve the look and feel of your dining table? Tired of the old runner? You won’t have to shop for a new one. Get patterns and start quilting. You may want to try working with varying triangles for each row to create a wonderful-looking quilt for your dining area.


Love the sea? Go with an all-blue quilt. Check out simple boat patterns and add few bits of nautically-themed knick-knacks for the perfect beach corner in your home office. Add a few seashells or even a wooden boat and, you’ll have a lovely work space or corner that you can rest your eyes on whenever you feel tired at work.
