Buffalo Plaid Quilt – a FREE pattern!

Whether you’re a brand new quilter, or have years of quilting experience, there is nothing better than a FAST finish. Sure, there are a lot of beautiful patterns out there, but sometimes you just need to make a quilt in record time — whether as a last minute gift, or as a way to save your sanity! I’ve got just the pattern for you AND it’s FREE!

The Buffalo Plaid Quilt pattern can be downloaded as a PDF here!

And since I know that choosing fabric for a quilt can be tricky (raise your hand if you are like me: incredibly indecisive & over-think your fabric pulls!), I’ve done that part for you! I have many kits available, as well as a build-your-own-kit option! All kits will come with the fabrics to make your top + coordinating binding, & you have the option to add backing as well.
Buffalo Plaid Quilt Kits can be found HERE!

You’ll find that the pattern includes two sizes: A rectangular throw & a square throw. Both are great options for the couch, a picnic, tummy time, an extra blanket on the bed, etc!

I did my best to cover the most common colors for this type of quilt. Color options are Forest Greens, Denim Blues, Autumn Oranges, and Grey & Black. And just in case you want something else, the build-your-own-kit option allows you to make your own combination of fabrics from my shop! All kits ship free.

I’m thinking this pattern (& the kits!) will come in handy for Christmas gifts (hint hint!), birthdays, baby showers, & just-because-we’re-friends gifts. Do you ever find yourself thinking, “I want to make a quilt for this person,” but you can’t decide on a pattern and it would take weeks to actually make the quilt? Not this time! I cut & pieced the top of this quilt in one evening (while I was exhausted from the day & distracted by Netflix!) Did I mention this pattern is fast?

The best part? This pattern is as easy as quilting gets! If you’ve never made a quilt before & you are wanting to learn how, this is the PERFECT pattern to start with!

I also had the help of three very fast, very wonderful pattern testers! Here are their quilts — please be sure to visit their Instagram pages & show them some love! They were all essential to releasing this pattern & how stinkin’ GORGEOUS are their quilts?! (I really enjoy that they all chose to do fall/Halloween themed quilts!)

Skulls, black cats & purple — so perfect for Halloween!

DISCLAIMER: Because of the nature of the internet, I want to add this…. there are many versions of a buffalo plaid or gingham quilt pattern out in the world. I did NOT copy anyone in any way. I wanted to make a plaid quilt, so I sat down, did my own math, made my own diagrams, wrote this pattern and decided to share it with you. While the quilt design is not my original design (it’s a very old, very common design that is not original to ANY pattern writer), the pattern itself (the math, the wording in the instructions, the diagrams) are my original work.

  1. Good Job my friend!
    Do I need another pattern?
    Do I have a ton of patterns to even start?
    Have I always wanted to make one of these?
    Am I going to download your pattern?
    Will I get around to making it in this decade?
