    I just made a quilt from byannie.com, called Wickedly Easy Quilt. The link is: http://www.byannie.com/media/images/...s_patterns.pdf

    It was super easy and quick, and only the block seams have to match. Name:  JoAnns quilt finished (2).JPG

Size:  1.88 MBI made it as a hostess gift for my college roommate who has graciously opened up her home to my husband, myself, our son, DIL and DGD while we visit my mom and celebrate her 88th birthday next month. Hope she likes it.

    I agree that Eleanor Burns'Quick Trip Around the World
    is a great one for not having to match seams. The only seam you have to match is the last one. I have some pics here in my album: http://www.quiltingboard.com/members...bums17442.html

    I love this! Very modern and I love the colors! People who think they don't like "quilts" would love this one, I think. Terrific job!

    I love this, too! It's pure art, like an abstract painting. Your former roommate will love it!

    The Big Block patterns doesn't have any matching seams. It's easy to make and is gorgeous when done. http://www.clotilde.com/detail.html?prod_id=14924

    My 9 year old granddaughter made one for the Columbia county Faith this year. Sew strips of varying widths together. when you have a 10 inch wide piece, cut it in 10 inch squares, sew 2 squares together around the outside, cut both ways across corner to corner X , then sew the little blocks together. No seams to match. She wond Best of Show in Textile Division, and made it last year when she was only 8. Her's is small but you can just keep adding blocks until it is the size you want. There is a small picture of it on the home page of the web site.

    The quilt I just finished doesn't have many - if any - seams to match up and it was a breeze to make
    Oriental Garden spotlight.com.au/inspiration/projects/oriental-garden-quilt. I made mine with only two colors (long story. I didn't want to but ended up doing it that way...

    The other one that comes to mind is the Quick Trip around the World which I saw on tv. It's an Eleanor Burns quilt. It isn't the Trip Around the World quilt which has tons of points to match up. The quick trip uses rectangles and has no seams to match up at all.

    Of course, there is Yellow Brick Road and Disappearing 9-Patch. Go to utube for instructions for the Disappearing 9-Patch.

    Here's an EASY one it's the 1600 jelly roll quilt. The info is self explanatory.

    Quilts w/o Seams: Fabric 108 wide or so; layred and and then just quilted; full whole cloth--quilted and bound. The quilting makes it a quilt but not a pieced quilt. Hope this helps. Usually this is done on white or off white fabric with colored threads or any solid color with the quilting in a different color thread.

    Yellow brick road, CrazyQuilts, etc. By not having matching seams...they don't mean seam free. A nine patch block has matching seams...even a 4 patch has a matching seam (your 4 squares have to match at the center).

    "Seasoned quilters"! I love it. I'm 80 and I AM old but I'm still not too fussy about the phrase "old quilter". LOL. Bless you.
