Quilts are a lot of things: beautiful, artistic, sentimental . . . but more than all that, they’re expensive. Try to just walk into a store and buy a quilt off the shelves and you’re could be looking at hundreds of dollars out the window. Why spend all that money when you can put together a warm and wonderful quilt by yourself, at low cost? For the thrifty homemaker, we’ve put together a selection of scrap quilt patterns and easy quilt patterns that anyone can make. There’s no reason why keeping warm should have to cost a fortune—especially not in a winter like this one.
Scrap Quilt Patterns
The easiest way to put together a quilt at low cost is to just use fabric you already have! Patterns like the 11 Patch Scrap Quilt make full use of your stash pile to keep you warm and cozy.
Fat Quarter bundles will cost you a little more than just using scraps, but it still saves you from having to buy large amounts of various fabrics. They’re a great way to get high-quality fabric in just the right size (for just the right price).
T-Shirt Quilt Patterns
There’s no cheaper way to sew a quilt than to make it out of t-shirts! These quilts are a great way to keep warm and take a trip down memory lane at the same time.
