How big is a 10 yard quilt?

This particular quilt finishes at 54″ x 65″, which is my largest 3 yard quilt pattern. This is a great throw size quilt. You will have enough fabric to finish the quilt top, including 2 borders. More fabric is needed for the binding and back of the quilt.

Most 10 yard quilts are quilts or quilts because they don't require a lot of fabric. Many would also make a darling baby quilt. Since this type of quilt is not very large, you can finish it quickly and give it as a gift or use it in your home. Because of their size, quilts like this are easy to quilt using straight line quilting, wavy line quilting, or crosshatch quilting with the walking foot of your sewing machine.

This quilt pattern includes four-patch quilt blocks, plain quilt blocks, 2-patch rectangle blocks, and plain rectangle blocks. Your main “main fabric” can make the solid blocks stand out, and the coordinating or darker fabric will create a secondary pattern in the background.

If you like using your AccuQuilt fabric cutter like I do, you can use the strip cutting dies to cut the borders. The squares and rectangles in this quilt are not included on standard AccuQuilt dies. See all of my Accuquilt compatible quilts.

How to choose the right 3 meters of fabric

All of my 3 yard quilt patterns make choosing your fabric so easy. First, find a beautiful “target fabric” in your stash or local quilt store. For this one, I chose a large scale floral print from a collection called Eden by Windham Fabrics.

After choosing your main fabric, choose a lighter coordinating fabric and a mid-value or darker coordinating fabric. My coordinating fabrics are Moda Grunge prints.

Wouldn't this quilt pattern in earthy fall colors be too? I almost made this quilt with a average value coordinating fabric, and I think that would have looked beautiful too.

I used my EQ8 Quilt Design Software to see what this quilt would look like using the Hibernation Tilda's collection. Makes me want to cuddle up on the couch with someone!

If you follow these instructions for choosing your fabrics, you can't go wrong, and you probably already have 3 fabrics in your stash that will make a beautiful quilt.

The Easiest Free Three Yard Quilt Pattern Ever

This free quilt pattern includes instructions for a four-patch quilt block. You will also create partial blocks (just 2 patches) to place on the sides of the quilt. All other blocks are plain so you can show off that gorgeous focus print you saved!

Including borders, this finished quilt measures 54″ x 65″. It's perfect for snuggling up on the couch, gifting to a friend, or donating to a worthy organization.

Let's get creative and sew a beautiful quilt today!

Important note: This pattern extracts as much as possible from each meter of fabric. Both coordinating fabrics require a length of 36″. The width of each piece must have 42″ of usable fabric. Most fabrics printed within the last 5 to 10 years will work great because they are 44 inches wide including the selvedges, so they are 42 to 43 inches wide after cutting the selvedges .Please measure the length and width of your fabric pieces before starting to ensure And carefully follow the cutting charts below.

You will need:

  • 3 1 meter cuts of fabric (one main fabric, one darker fabric and one lighter fabric)*
  • a rotary cutting acrylic ruler and a mat
  • sewing machine
  • thread (I suggest thread to match the lighter fabric)
  • ironing board and iron

To sew the quilt top into a finished quilt, you will also need:

  • 3 3/8 yards of backing fabric (or enough to piece a 59″ x 70″ or larger quilt back)
  • a piece of fleece at least 59″ x 70″
  • 1/2 yard of fabric for binding

Cut:

Fabric A is your main fabric. From this fabric, cut out:

  • 7 squares 11 1/2” x 11 1/2”
  • 6 rectangles 11 1/2” x 6”

Fabric B is the coordinating fabric of medium value or darker. From this fabric, cut out:

  • 20 squares 6″ x 6″
  • 6 strips 3″ x 42″ for the exterior border
Optional Accuquilt Cutting Instructions:
  • Edging strips can be cut with the 3″ notch die 55084. More fabric will be needed if using the AccuQuilt die.

Fabric C is the lightest fabric. From this fabric, cut out:

  • 20 squares 6″ x 6″
  • 5-6 strips 3″ x 42″ for the inside border (depending on the width of your fabric)*

*I suggest cutting 5 interior border strips to start, then cutting one more if you need one. My fabric was 44 inches wide so I didn't need a 6th strip for my inside border.

Optional Accuquilt Cutting Instructions:
  • Edging strips can be cut with the 3″ notch die 55084. More fabric will be needed if using the AccuQuilt die.

Quilt assembly

Use a precise or little 1/4” seam allowance, depending on preference and precision of the finished block for your sewing machine

1. Sew all 6″ fabric B squares to a 6″ fabric C square, right sides together. Press the seam toward the darker fabric.

Make 20 pieces of 2 patches.

2. Sew two pieces of 2 patches together to form a block of 4 patches. Repeat to do eight Blocks of 4 patches. You will be left with four pieces of 2 patches. Press the seam open or press one side, as desired.

Assemble the Easiest 10-Yard Quilt Top Ever

1. Arrange two 11 1/2″ x 6″ rectangles of Fabric A, two 4-piece blocks and one 11 1/2″ square of Fabric A in a row as shown. Sew with a 1 seam allowance /4″. Press the seams toward the fabric A pieces.

Make 3 rows like this

2. Arrange two 2-patch pieces, two 11 1/2″ Fabric A squares, and one 4-patch block in a row as shown. Sew with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press the seams toward the fabric A pieces.

Make 2 rows like this.

3. Sew the five rows together alternating as shown.

Measure and sew the inside border

1. Sew five 3-inch strips of lightweight fabric (fabric C) together to form one long strip. You will cut pieces of it to make the interior border.

The expected length of the side border pieces is 55 1/2″. I highly recommend measuring the quilt top and cutting all border pieces to size. Learn how to cut quilt borders to size . Secure the side borders.

2. The expected length of the top and bottom border pieces is 49 1/2″. Measure your quilt and cut two strips for the top and bottom border. Attach the top and bottom border pieces.

If you need additional fabric for the outside border, you can cut an additional strip 3 inches tall.

Measure and sew the outer edge

1. Sew the six 3-inch strips of Fabric A together to form one long strip. You will cut pieces of it to make the outer border.

The planned length of the side border pieces is 60 1/2″. Measure the quilt top with the inside border and cut two strips for the side edges. Attach the side borders.

2. The planned length of the second top and bottom borders is 54 1/2″. Measure the top of your quilt with the inside border and cut two strips for the top and bottom edges. Attach the top and bottom border pieces.

Finishing the Easiest Three Yard Quilt Pattern Ever

1. Cut or piece together a piece of quilt backing fabric 59″ x 70″ or larger and form a quilt sandwich with the backing, batting and top.

2. Brush with iron-on fleece, pins or brush with spray.

3. Quilt as desired. Straight line quilting or crosshatch quilting with your walking foot would be quick and easy. Cut the extra backing fabric and batting.

4. Cut 6 binding strips and bind using your preferred method. This is my favorite quilt binding method.
