How To

Create Your Own Cheater Quilt!

This month we are celebrating all things Quilting in honor of National Quilting Month!

Many quilters love our basic combed cotton and premium cotton for their quilts! You can print any designs you want on any of our fabrics to start creating your custom quilt. You can print swatches, fat quarters or yards. You can even print out an entire cheater quilt! Design your own and upload it, choose some fun geometric designs from our gallery, or even create your own with our free online pattern creator tool!


There are tons of great designs in our gallery that can be used as cheater quilts such as the ones below.

You can also use our creator tool to help create your own completely custom cheater quilt. You can add shapes images and more! We created a fun cheater quilt print and had it mirrored across 2 yards of our basic combed cotton fabric.

We first started by clicking pattern and entering the dimensions of half of the design we wanted, making it 27″x 36″. We only made it half of our design since we planned on mirroring it. We then added shapes and quilt elements from our our clipart gallery.

We arranged them and changed the size and color of each object by going to the object settings tab.

Once we had the design the way we liked we processed the fabric and chose the mirror tiling option. We designed this design to go across two yards, so we also changed the quantity to 2. We can now see the full preview to the right!


You can get this fun cheater quilt printed on any of our fabrics! It is 2 Yards Modern Cheater Quilt designed by LaurenYoungDesigns. Don’t Forget to take 30% off your order all the month of march with code quilt30.
