You'll Be Seeing Green With These Fun Quilt Patterns


St. Patrick's Day is all about green clothes, green beer and, for crafters, green quilts. In honor of the Irish holiday, choose any of the patterns below and start stitching a quilt that's sure to leave others feelin' green with envy.

1. Shamrock Block

Bust your scraps and make a simple-yet-festive block. This four-leaf clover can be sewn into a pillow, incorporated into a table runner or larger quilt, or just framed and hung on the wall for some stitchy decor.

If you've got more green scraps than you know what to do with, it's your lucky day — this fun four-leaf clover quilt block is a fast, simple project to use every last one.

2. Crown Jewels Quilt

The secret to piecing this intricate design: organization. Choose your quilt size, then create an orderly color placement system to pull off the truly stunning effect.

3. Out of the Box Quilt

Quarter-sized triangles and scrappy binding make this quilt totally fat-quarter friendly and super easy to make.

4. Squared-Off Rhapsody Quilt

This beginner-friendly pattern is easy to build without sacrificing any wow-factor, as the blocks frame gorgeous 10" squares in all the right ways.

5. Flock Together Rhapsody

You know what they say: blocks of a feather flock together! Four- and nine-bird blocks are set with half-square triangles, creating a delightful design that wings along with movement.

6. Starry Path Quilt

Practice piecing perfect points as three different triangle units come together in two unique star blocks. New to the technique? You can learn to make 'em all in our Startup Project: Starry Path Quilt class.

7. Puzzle Collage

This quilt may look as intricate as a 1,000-piece puzzle, but there's a secret to solving it: stitch-and-trim units, which come together to create that gorgeous braided effect. Create each block, stitch the rows together and soon enough you'll have a magically finished quilt.

8. Lucky Mug Rug

When there isn't enough time to work up a whole quilt, small but festive projects ( like mug rugs! ) are the golden ticket. This one is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of Irish coffee , and it'll use up those green fabric scraps in your bin.

9. Luck of the Irish Chain Quilt

Forget subtlety — between the Irish chains and appliqué shamrock, this quilt is loud and proud Irish.

10. Division Quilt

Whether you're making a baby quilt or one to drape on your queen-sized bed, jelly rolls are the way to successfully completing this dreamy pattern.

11. Stained Glass in Green

This project is perfect for beginner quilters who need to bust scraps. The simple square motifs come together so fast, you can stitch the whole thing up in a day.
