A quick and easy quilt pattern for all levels of quilting. Size 74” x 100”, but easy to make in any size.
This quilt pattern allows quilters to quickly choose your fabrics, cut your strips, group strip sets and start sewing!
When I designed this quilt pattern, I had a set of 13 fabrics that looked great together. I was anxious to start a new quilt without having to think about special cutting instructions or specific yardage requirements. With equal amounts of each fabric (well, I think I had more of my focus fabric for the first one that I made), I started cutting: 5”, 4”, 3”, 2” and 1”. And, the 5-4-3-2-1 Quilt! pattern was created.
Any color scheme will be successful using this pattern. Choose bright & bold fabrics with high contrast, subtle colors with little contrast or fun novelty fabrics to create a themed quilt. Add a simple, pieced border (instructions included in the pattern) to quickly finish your new quilt top!
So, shop your fabric stash, or visit your favorite fabric shop to find 13 fabrics that play well together. Then…
