But what about when you simply want to update a bedroom, show off sumptuous new fabrics, or get a gift quilt ready to go? If you’re looking for a truly quick queen size quilt pattern, this week’s Friday Freebie is for you! Here’s Pretty in Paisley, an upsize of a quilt designed by Metropolitan Quilt for the June/July 2015 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts:
The version of this quilt in the magazine finishes 54 1/2″ x 72 1/2″, a nice snuggly lap size quilt pattern (a limited number of kits are available). Both patterns are super simple to piece…half-square triangle units make up the entire quilt top. Careful fabric arrangement creates the zigzag look, and cool trendy fabrics set a modern theme. The pattern would also look wonderful made with more traditional fabrics. Just be careful to vary color/value/scale of the prints to set the zigzags off from each other.
