The editors at FaveQuilts know that we can’t track every new quilting project or trend on our own, which is why we have our amazing Quilt Designers who send us all of their best projects and updates. We get a great inside look at what quilters are interested in and how they’re expressing these interests through their patterns. If you’re looking for a quick update on what’s new and exciting in quilting, take a look below at some of the latest patterns from our designers:
For the perfect blend of simplicity and versatility, you can never go wrong with a patchwork quilt pattern. Some quilters enjoy them because they can be economical with their fabric without losing a sense of beauty in the color scheme of their quilt. Patchwork patterns are also great for beginners, but there are also plenty of fun variations more advanced quilters can try their hands at.

Seasonal Quilt Patterns
Spring’s officially on its way out, which has quilters raring to go for something that says “summer”. One of our favorite trends has been outdoor quilts like garden quilts and picnic quilters that can involve a number of different styles depending on your tastes and come alive nicely with a bright and refreshing color palette. You can skip those expensive trips to the home decor store and make your own designs to enjoy as you lounge outside or indoors when it’s hot.

Kids Quilts and Quilting for Babies
No matter what time of year it is, there are always little ones who could use a little extra cuddliness and softness. You can use applique quilt designs to make a fun kids quilt with their favorite animal on it that they can enjoy for years. We’ve also noticed that many designers are playing an exciting game with their shapes. You’ll be doing a double take when you see how some of these patterns have used half-square triangles and simple shapes.
