Looking back over the last year, it’s fun to see what resonated with you as a maker and which quilt patterns sold best in my shop. It seems to change over time and I like to look back and see what’s been popular from year to year, and where my creative efforts make the most impact with quilters.

The Quilt Patterns:

Talk of the Town by Amy Ellis - Easy Quilts Patterns

Talk of the Town

The quilt-along last summer on Youtube pushed Talk of the Town to the top of the list. This fat quarter friendly quilt has five size options included, and video tutorials to walk you through the process of making it!

Dart - Modern Quilt Pattern by Amy Ellis - AmysCreativeSide.com


My Dart pattern is scrap friendly and great for fat quarters you’ve stashed. It includes three sizes for your scrap-busting pleasure and tips for fabric selection too. Check out my video tutorial here.

Patchwork Plus by Amy Ellis - Sew Modern Quilts

Patchwork Plus

Patchwork Plus is a great introduction to simple patchwork. Using a gradient of colors to set off the plus shape these oversized blocks turn to give the quilt top movement.

Quill - AmysCreativeSide.com


A perennial favorite, Quill is a fun to sew pattern. The large half-square triangle units create feathers, the pattern includes two sizes and has simple to follow instructions for fabric placement. Quill was originally created with my first fabric line, and included in Quilty, but has been a part of my pattern collection for three years now. You can see the original quilt in this video.

Modern Neutrals Quilts - AmysCreativeSide.com


Soiree is an early pattern as well. Using pre-cut Layer Cake or Charm Packs make this quilt a quick start project, and the alternating blocks add a graphic element to the quilt top.

Color Shift Quilt by Amy Ellis - Sew Modern Quilts

Color Shift

Color Shift was a new addition to my pattern line up in 2019. It’s all about fabric selection and creating a gradient of color. The pattern includes four sizes, but the blocks scale instead of making more. It’s a great project to stretch your fabric selection skills without overthinking the piecing.

Dimensions by Amy Ellis - Simple Value Quilt Pattern - AmysCreativeSide.com


My Dimensions quilt pattern was originally made in grey fabrics, but can be done in any color! Using traditional hourglass blocks in a modern way with color placement is fun. This pattern also includes four sizes.

Modern Wedge Quilt by Amy Ellis - Sew Modern Quilts

Modern Wedge

When adding a new skill to your quilting repertoire, less is more. The Modern Wedge pattern is an introduction to half-square triangles without making 300 of them – yay! The pattern includes four sizes, and with minimal fabric selections needed it’s a fast start project every time.

Turnstyle by Amy Ellis in Viva Mexico fabrics by Dear Stella


This oversized traditional block sets the Turnstyle pattern apart – each block requires one fat quarter, and it’s a great space to showcase your favorite prints. The bias edges do make this one a bit more advanced than most of my pattern,  but if you are up for the challenge the results are worth it! Turnstyle pattern includes three sizes.

Dayhike by Amy Ellis - Easy Quilts Patterns


This Layer Cake pattern sews up in a snap every time. Using a Layer Cake that you love, ensures a strong finish, just add a little neutral yardage to bring this quick project together. The pattern includes three sizes.
