There’s something about spring that makes me think pink…and yellow…and green…and lavender! Colorful quilts are on my mind, especially colorful FREE queen size quilt patterns. Snuggle quilts for the sofa have had their season. It’s time to freshen up a bedroom or two!
If you’re ready to give a queen size bed a spring facelift, this week’s Friday Freebie is for you. Frosted Candy was designed by Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs, and the sample quilt showcases fabrics by Holly Holderman for LakeHouse Dry Goods.
The pattern is so easy, you can have this quilt top pieced in a weekend, especially if you use strip piecing to make the four-patch units instead of piecing a patch at a time as in the pattern. Either way, it’s a truly fast quilt with a very nice secondary pattern of diagonal chains. Highlight them by repeating dominant fabrics, or keep it all scrappy like Gerri did!
