3-yard quilts are so on-trend right now. They’re quick and easy to sew, and they let you indulge in pretty bits of fabric without making a huge investment. They’re also great for beginner quilters, good refresher projects if you’re feeling bored or need a quick quilting jolt, and make great gifts.
We have several 3-yard quilt kits in stock to coordinate with five different supporting 3-yard quilt collection books. Today we’re going to show you some of our favorite 3-yard quilt patterns (along with the supporting pattern books and kits) so you can whip up a quick and easy 3-yard quilt! Remember: any of these kits will work with any of these patterns—these are just our suggestions. Feel free to mix and match!
This classic Nine Patch Quilt from 3-Yard Quilt Favorites feels like quilting a crop of spring flowers, so we paired it with two of our floral quilt kits—the more demure Pink Floral 3-Yard Quilt Kit, and the electric Black Floral 3-Yard Quilt Kit.
These two kits would make very different Nine Patch Quilts, both equally lovely!
The Dancing Bears Quilt as shown in 3-Yard Quilts on the Double doesn’t really do justice to the pattern. We would have chosen a different selection of fabrics to really amplify the bear’s “claws,” which are a different fabric from the bear’s “paw pads.” You can see the pattern in action showcasing more contrasting fabrics below.
To amplify the contrast on the bear claws, we chose the Daydreamer 3-Yard Quilt Kit. The Tula Pink fabrics are punchy and bright.
We think it would be perfect paired with Dancing Bears—can’t you see those bright yellow claws extending from flamingo-themed paw pads? We can.
The Modern Charm Quilt is apparently one of the most popular quilts from Quick as a WInk 3-Yard Quilts. We’re not surprised! Like its name, it’s charming and the arrangement of the shapes and patterning feel unique and fresh. Again, the above image doesn’t do the quilt justice; the one below is better.
We stuck with florals for the Modern Charm Quilt, with a warm option and a cool option.
The Modern Chic Quilt from Fast & Fun 3-Yard Quilts is graphically striking, and looks completely different depending on your fabric choice and placement. For that reason, we chose two very different kit options for it.
There is a lot to love about the County Fair Quilt from Easy Does It 3-Yard Quilts. There’s a solid block, a bordered block, and a pinwheel block—enough to keep the quilting interesting, without being overly difficult.
We chose the On the Wind 3-Yard Quilt Kit for the County Fair Quilt for the striking contrasts between the goldenrod, slate gray, and cream fabrics.
