20 Striking Turning Twenty Quilt Patterns
I looked around for 20 stunning Turning Twenty quilting samples. This straightforward and flexible quilt pattern style is always open to customization.
1. The Original Turning Twenty Pattern
If you’re interested in making The Original Turning Twenty quilt, here’s the link to the original pattern book. Tricia Cribbs sought to provide patterns that were simple to put together while also making pattern selection easier. I think she did a fantastic job with this pattern.
2. Modern Turning Twenty…Again
I saw this gorgeous quilt on Pinterest and knew I had to share it with you! This quilt maker utilized the Turning Twenty Again pattern and a modern color palette to create this interesting quilt. Each block is built in the same way if you look attentively. They’re simply twisted to add movement and interest.
3. Eggahells and Chocolate Joel Dewberry Quilt
The Original Turning 20 design is used in this quilt. The quilter who created it used a soothing color scheme and striking designs. I really like the scrappy border on this quilt. It complements the quilt’s overall motif.
4. Yellow Brick Road
Isn’t this quilt top making you feel all warm and fuzzy? The yellow and blue color scheme is a timeless fit that gives this quilt a warm glow. This design is comparable to the original, although it is not a carbon copy.
5. Pink Turning 20
This quilt’s creator used 30 fat quarters to construct a significantly larger quilt than the Original Turning Twenty. That’s what makes these simple patterns so appealing. You can easily modify them to meet your requirements.
6. Pastel Turning 20
7. The Original Turning Twenty by Tricia Cribbs
We’ve included a link to Tricia Cribbs’ website, where she has additional Turning Twenty examples. This is only one of the many instances on her website. The fun part about this pattern is that fabric selection plays a large role in how the quilt will look. They all appear to be very different.
8. Rosewood Lane
This quilt pattern comes in five distinct sizes. We’ll concentrate on the throw size today because it utilizes 20 fat quarters and thus qualifies as a turning 20 quilt pattern. This pattern has a lively appearance and goes nicely with bright, cheerful hues.
9. Big and Bold
Another pattern by Daniela Stout that comes in multiple sizes is this one. The twin size is the smallest size that will fit into our current category. This lovely quilt can be made with only 20 fat quarters and 78 yards of accent fabric. To give you an idea of what it might look like, the quilt seen above is a twin-size quilt.
10. Turning Twenty with Sashing
This quilt has a cozy vibe thanks to the use of muted cottage-style colors and patterns. In addition, the designer decided to employ sashing between the blocks. I love how adding sashing to a more simple design transforms it into a windowpane.
11. Turning Twenty Around the Block
This modified version of the Turning 20 pattern, “Around the Block,” adds a lot of movement to the quilt top. With its purple pops against a monochromatic background, this quilt is stunning.
12. Bows Ties and Butterflies
Don’t you think batik textiles look fantastic with this pattern? Tricia Cribbs’ Turning Twenty series continues with this pattern. Although it appears to be more sophisticated than the original, Tricia has kept it simple and straightforward to follow.
13. Feelin’ Groovy
This quilt, which uses squares and 8 point stars to create a “groovy” design, is another 20 fat quarter-friendly pattern from The Turning Twenty collection. If you click on the link, you’ll be taken to the book where this quilt pattern may be found. There are also 13 more projects in the book that you can try. The best part is that they all take less than 20 fat quarters!
14. Blue and Green Turning 20
Another variation of the classic Turning 20 pattern, this time with numerous different patterns but the same color scheme. This is a true patchwork quilt top, and I’m sure it will look even better when finished.
15. Hope Chest Treasures
16. Blues Turning 20
This blue version of the classic Turning 20 pattern is just stunning. The blues all blend together to create a beautiful “blanket” of vibrant color. This quilt was made for the quilter’s father’s 90th birthday—what a thoughtful and gorgeous gift.
17. Simply Sashed: Stained Glass
This quilt pattern will appeal to anyone who enjoys the beauty of stained glass. This Tricia Cribbs classic uses sashing between each square and rectangle of the quilt top to simulate stained glass. This design will also come in a variety of sizes so that you can build a smaller or larger version.
18. Lilac and Purple Turning 20
I tried to discover a variety of color palettes in the original Turning 20 design for this list to demonstrate how adaptable the pattern is. Another excellent example of this simple, enjoyable pattern is this stunning quilt. Grey looks great with purples, and this quilter did an excellent job picking out the perfect colors and patterns for her quilt.
19. Light Bright Colors
I’m not sure what the name of this quilt is, but I had to include it because of the bright colors and simple design. Each block is identical if you look closely; they’ve just been twisted 90 degrees like the original Turning 20 pattern. This simple quilt has a modern, eclectic feel thanks to the color scheme.
