Default I知 looking for easy quilt designs

One of my granddaughters will be graduating from high school in 2019. I am looking for an easy modern quilt pattern for a twin size bed.

Thank you!!!

the Rail fence pattern is very easy, but not one of my favorites. My go-to, easy pattern is called Five Easy Pieces Charity Quilt and if you do a search on this board for that you will find it in the archives of the Tutorials section. I gave complete instructions. Although I did it in masculine colors, scroll down through the posts and see examples of others that did it in feminine colors. Would be great in modern brights/prints too depending upon her tastes.

Boston1954 made the most beautiful square in a square (not sure if that's the correct name) from batiks. It's easy and so pretty!! I hope she chimes in.

I found it. It's called Boxed Squares. I can't wait to make one!

I use Pinterest to browse designs. You can search for "easy quilt patterns", or check out the ones I have saved:

Google Images is good too.

Here I am. I have made Boxed Squares at least thirteen times. It is incredibly easy, but can be impressive with lots of colors. Plus, you can make the blocks any size you like.

Since easy is in the eye of the beholder, I'd watch some Missouri Star Quilt youtube videos to see what appeals to you. (Don't do Quartered Stripes, that one was a royal pain.) I haven't made it, but Falling Charms looks like an easy one. I've made a Disappearing 9 patch, which most folks think is easy, but I hated that the direction of the seams was not controlled. I made an I spy quilt that was named "Happy Blocks". It was easy, as it didn't have many matching seams. My cousin loves the original Turning Twenty for an easy quilt. Flannel Bricks is an easy one. You don't have to use flannel and it has no matching seams. This is one I'd like to make. It does have matching seams, but look doable. It has a scrappy look.

Other than those, do a search for "easy quilts for a beginner". There are tons of them.
