    Do any of you guys know where I can find extremely easy quilt patterns. I am looking for patterns that are beginner level, but have shortcuts or something as my time is limited with 3 little ones at home. I look through quilt magazines and I've been to just a few sites, but it all looks so daunting. The only patterns I've done are four patches and rail fence. Do you guys have any ideas??

    Thanks in advance,

    Melissa

    I've lost count of places you can find free patterns online. Here's where I usually start.

    http://mccallsquilting.com/

    They rate the level of experience recommended for each block.

    Look in the left column. Not only links to lots of free info on the McCall's pages ... links to affiliated magazine pages and more free stuff.

    Can't beat it with a stick!
    :wink:

    Thanks everyone!

    I am familiar with Marcia's quilter's cache site. I go there often. Her pin system confuses me. Some have one pin because there's only one form of piecing, but the piecing used is difficult. I wish there was just beginner, intermediate, expert stuff.

    The others I can't wait to try. I found a few sites searching today, but I want to try them all out and get rid of the bogus ones before I share with you.

    Thanks again!!

    I love the Mccalls quilting site too. There are just so many out there and the patterns are free. Here is another one that I was given just the other day. It's a lot like the Turning Twenty done with fqs bu this one is free!! LOL I just made my first Turning Twenty though and wow did it go fast!! I got my fabric on Friday, cut it out on Sat and made it on Sunday and Monday.

    Melissa, someone suggested Warm Wishes to me for an animal quilt I'm doing, I don't think it can get any easier than that one and it is going to be beautiful. Can wait to get it together so I can post pictures.

    Melissa, while your kids are little, trace their hand on a piece of paper. I made a hand quilt where I machine appliqued the handprints in different fabrics with their names on them. I had my whole family, including my parents, my children and husband and even me, siblings, their spouses and their children. I made it for my sister out of fabric from her childhood outfits. It was a big hit, but my favorite part was looking at the very personalized handprints and remembering that person.
