    5 fabric quilt pattern

    Ladies,
    I saw a quilt pattern that uses only 5 fabrics. Does anyone know the name of it? It is made up of rectangles/squares. These are put together to make a block. I've tried Googling and it isn't coming up with anything but a book title.

    Thanks for your help!

    An easy pattern that really turns out great. I have a couple of the patterns. One is set on point. I haven't made that one yet.
    Happy Quilting.

    Check Quilter's Cache and you can count the number of colors that are in a block. There are an awful lot of them. I have already made a sampler quilt that had nothing but blocks with five different fabrics. Good luck. It's a lot of fun, isn't it? I find that the planning is the anticipation, the making is the formation and the finish is the satisfaction.

    I didn't know she had passed away. Sewing has lost another great one.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    I get the Clotilde catalog, but I never noticed the 5 before. I like it.

    For once I knew the answer to a question but was someone beat me! Yes the "take five" quilt is fun to do. I've made it several time and it always turns out really cute. It is a great way to showcase fabrics. Now I've feeling like a quilting wizard!

    Here is a link to a free pattern that can use any number of fabrics but has squares and rectangles. Many different sizes you can make, too.
