FREE Pattern Feature – Colorful Friends Panel Quilt

We LOVE a free quilt pattern, especially when it is easy to sew and cute as a button!

The Colorful Friends Panel Quilt (FREE pattern found HERE) features fabric from the Colorful Friends collection by Crayola®. The quilt consists of a 36″ x WOF center fabric panel and two simple strip borders.

One of the features we love about this fabric panel is that it looks as if it has been pieced. There are four patchwork blocks, five animal portrait blocks, and cute Blue Footprints sashing.

Each adorable animal portrait is drawn with – you guessed it – crayon! How cute is that lion?!

Look closely at our quilting, and you will see we opted for a fun animal themed design.

One of the best parts about creating quilts with fabric panels is that once the quilting is complete, it really is difficult to tell it is a fabric panel. This is the quilt you want little ones to drag from carseat to crib, from the park to the family room floor…it is meant to be loved and spilled on and washed and loved some more.

For the quilt back, we used the Colorful Friends Charcoal Animals print. This print features more of the sweet little animal portraits on a smaller scale. What’s your favorite animal portrait? Are you overwhelmed by the cuteness? Download the FREE Colorful Friends Panel Quilt Pattern HERE to make your very own quick and easy panel quilt!
