Fabric is Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille for Moda



Perfect for staying warm and cozy on a fall evening, Little Lanterns is an innovative pattern that uses simple blocks to create a beautiful quilt that looks much more complex than it really is. Reminds me of little paper lanterns on the porch at our “Hooray It’s Fall!” party.

No Y seams.

A great way to use up stash fabrics, or your favorite 2½” strip precut.

Fabric is Cotton Blossoms by Bonnie and Camille for Moda




A fun and versatile twist on a classic argyle, this quilt uses ribbon for the stripes, instead of piecing. There are so many possibilities: Camouflage fabric with twill tape stripes, satins and velvets with sequin stripes, or some good old fashioned flannels with grosgrain. Any way you mix it, this one’s a knockout!

The Long and Short of It:
Finished Size: 59×72

Can be made with various yardage, or precut 10″ squares (20).

Fabric is Life’s a Hoot by Tammy Andersen for Adorn It Just Sew
