Basic Bars Quilt ePattern
The Basic Bars Quilt ePattern is the newest in a series of bar-based, machine applique designs from ReannaLily Designs. The concept builds on techniques featured in Hexagons Made Easy and Learn to Sew Easy Curves. The bars are created using a facing, modified from the techniques in the books.
Make this pattern in two sizes:
- Baby: 40″ x 60″
- Queen: 72″ x 90″
Learn how to create simple facings and machine applique the bars to a background fabric. The design couldn’t be easier.
This pattern is perfect for easing into modern quilting using a controlled, exact method. After all, it can’t all be improvisational pieced blocks, right?
Should you be in a pinch for a fast baby gift, look no further than this quilt. With the baby size requiring only 5 quarter yard cuts of fabric + background, this is affordable and do-able in a week night.
Skill Level: Beginner
This pattern includes ideas for free motion quilting, too. No longer to you have to agonize over the phrase “quilt as desired” (Though, I totally did include the phrase in the pattern!!) A basic starting idea for free motion quilting is on page 3.
