0 Intro 2

Modern, streamlined, quick, with characteristics such as these, the column quilt will no doubt soon become your go-to form of patchwork. Quilt designs are commonly based on squares, triangles, or circles—or a combination thereof. Celebrate March as National Quilting Month by adding a new word to your repertoire of patchwork descriptions: The word is columns!

Get ready for a Quick Column Quilts journey! Choose from the thirteen column quilt designs in my Quick Column Quilts book and TV show. If you’re new to quilting or want to refresh your skills, there’s a design for you!

Quick Column Quilts by Nancy Zieman

The Original Column Quilt

This easy-to-piece design can be made into a double- or full-size bed quilt. the gradation of colors provides great visual impact! I found inspiration for this quilt design from a beach towel that was left behind at our home, by a friend of the family.

Quilt To Give

I modified the origional column quilt (above) and created this super-quick quilt design—to make and donate to individuals and families in need. The quilt is easily made from a fabric stash with perhaps few purchased fabric additions. The center of each column features scrappy patchwork. You can easily create a Quilt to Give by yourself, or invite friends to sew with you—like we do at Quilt Expo.

13 Quilt to Give

Heartbeat Column Quilt

No matter the size—baby to king—you can sew this quilt in a heartbeat! Colorful accent strips in a variety of widths make up the heartbeat pattern, while the subdued one-color strips add a perfect background for the design.

1 Heartbeat

Interrupted Columns Quilt

This speedy-to-make queen-size quilt is designed with a very easy lesson in color coordination. Simply find a print you love for the sashing, and choose five colors from the print to use for the column solid color fabrics. The interruptions—horizontal strips—stop the lengthwise movement while creating a more artistic appeal.

2 Interrupted

Carefree Column Quilt

Fat quarters, those convenient fabric cuts approximately 18″ x 21″, are ideal for this next column quilt. Made with six fat quarter cuts and a background fabric, this lap quilt is ideal for bright fabric choices or large-scale prints.

3 Carefree

Wind Chime Column Quilt

The wind chimes hanging from our deck served as the inspiration for this Wind Chime Column Quilt. Just like real wind chimes, the angled accent pieces, seem to move as if gently nudged by the wind.

4 Windchime

Folded Flying Geese Wall Hanging

No half-square triangles are needed to make these artistic Flying Geese. Start with squares, fold three times, and presto the folded triangles create 3-dimensional Flying Geese. Plus, the background columns are not cut, but rather one piece of fabric. Hmm, it’s kinda interesting.

5 Folded Flying Geese

Folded Scrappy Column Quilt

Are you looking for a stash buster or a scrap quilt project? This folded column quilt is the answer! The steps are simple: fold, then quilt. There are no pieced triangles and zero bias cut edges. This three-dimensional project has guidelines, rather than an exact pattern, so it is perfect for every size fabric scrap in your stash. Talk about easy!

6 Folded Scrappy

Dotted Columns Wall Hanging

Switch it up by making an abstract wall hanging with column-quilt techniques and fun fabrics. This artistic silk dupioni wall hanging includes “dotted columns”—circles appliquéd over the easy-to-create columns. Use a tool designed especially for making circles such as the Circles Sew Simple Tool. It makes the circles fast, painlessly, and perfect!

7 Dotted Columns

Happy-Go-Lucky Chevron Column Quilt

Use novel piecing techniques in this Happy-Go-Lucky Chevron Column Quilt. Mix and match the wide and narrow strips of fabric to create care-free chevron columns. No matching necessary—use only straight stitching.

8 Happy Go Lucky Chevron

0 stippling detail

Hit-and-Miss Table Runner

At first glance, this table runner looks like it is pieced with traditional hexagons. Not so with this speedy column quilt design. The hexagon shapes are created with two halves, eliminating the intersection of three seams, otherwise known as Y-seams. With this technique, faux-hexagon halves are stitched in columns with relative speed and ease. Plus, the results are dramatic!

9 Hit and Miss

Tumbling Tumblers Column Quilt

Take a recognizable tumbler quilt design and turn it on its side. Combine several sizes of tumbler shapes and presto, you have a modern quilt design that breaks most sewing rules. And, the piecing is super-simple!

10 Tumbling Tumblers

Floating Squares Column Quilt

This double-sized quilt looks difficult to make, but not so! The darker squares float on the light background of the quilt top, made with some creative cutting and sewing of crosswise strips. Not to worry; you will not be required to cut squares. I’ve opted for a quick-to-make column quilt!

11 Floating Squares

All 13 quilt patterns are detailed in my book, Quick Column Quilts.

  • Liz Fergus
    March 4, 2017

    Floating Squares and Columns! I might play a little with color by adding a bright spot here and there. Lovely.

  • Sherril Harris
    March 4, 2017

    I liked the wind chime column quilt the best. It looked quick & easy to make plus I loved the colors.

  • Donna Belisle
    March 4, 2017

    My favorite one is the carefree Column quilt, but the Dot Columns Wall Hanging is a huge second choice.

  • Marianne
    March 4, 2017

    Thinking I like the first original column quilt with all its symmetry and predictability.

  • Rosalyn Schultze
    March 4, 2017

    I love the Dotted Columns Wall Hanging made with silk dupioni. I particularly like the rich colors used in making this artistic quilt.

  • Wendy

    I love the floating squares! Such an easy, but beautiful design. Thanks for sharing these.

  • Marie Day
    March 4, 2017

    I love the Quilt to Give. Some thing about ALL those different fabrics just pulls me in. And I love the idea of giving to those in need.

  • Kathleen Scribner
    March 4, 2017

    I like them all, they look so modern; but i especially like the Dotted Columns quilt, I would put special things in the circles.

  • Brenda

  • Therese
    March 4, 2017

    I liked the heartbeat quilt the best until I viewed the wind chimes quilt! I really like all the patterns and I could see making several of these quilts. Thanks!

  • Maureen Larsen
    March 4, 2017

    The Carefree and the Floating Squares are my favorites. I am usually not a fan of modern patterns but these look like such fun!

  • Kathy Renz
    March 4, 2017

    I can’t pick just one! My favorites are the carefree column quilt, the folded flying geese wall hanging, happy-go-lucky chevron column quilt, and the hit-and-miss table runner. I would have labeled myself as traditional but I am definitely drawn to these modern quilts. Thank you, Nancy, for these exciting new ideas.

  • Marsha
    March 4, 2017

    Kind of hard for me to pick just one. That being said, my eye first went to the Happy Go Lucky Chevron quilt. I really like the quilting on each of the chevrons and how well it stands out. The Quilting just POPS. Looks like a project I could actually quilt on my domestic machine.

  • carolyn montgomery
    March 4, 2017

    folded flying geese is my favorite, but really i like them all. thanks for the chance to win.

  • Sheila
    March 4, 2017

    I like the Carefree and the Wind chime column quilts.

  • Mary Wippold
    March 4, 2017

    Choosing my favorite was not easy. I’d like to make each and every one of them. But the Carefree Column really caught my eye. It reminds me of a Mondrian painting.

  • Jade
    March 4, 2017

    I love the heartbeat quilt, I think it looks like a city skyline with a reflection of the skyline in reverse!

  • Lisa Haggstrom
    March 4, 2017

    I LOVE the Carefree Column Quilt. The color combinations are endless.

  • LaDonna Reynolds
    March 4, 2017

    I like them all!!! They are beautiful. My favorites would have to be the Heartbeat and Wind Chimes quilts. They are very different, plus I love the names. Heartbeat would be so cute in a baby quilt simply because of the name of the quilt, and, of course, you’d have to put it on the quilt label on the back for even more special meaning. Ha

  • brenda greene
    March 4, 2017

    the interrupted columns is the one I want to try to make first. but I would have several others on my list to make someday

  • Cherryl Campbell
    March 4, 2017

    I love the wind chime quilt! I can hear their soft melody floating on the breeze…..

  • Karen L.
    March 4, 2017

    As others said, it is hard to pick just one. it’s a bit like being told to pick your favorite child. Each one has it merits. For some reason I am drawn to the Heartbeat column quilt. In the right fabrics I can see this looking more like a city with it’s reflection below. Fascinating! Thanks for doing the give-away!

  • Sherrie Strabel
    March 4, 2017

    Happy Go Lucky would tend to be my favorite. Would like to try it with the new collection I have in my stash waiting for the right pattern

  • Katherine Noack
    March 4, 2017

    I like Carefree Column quilt the best. I have some flower prints that would be look great in that pattern. Always enjoy the articles.

  • Linda E in AZ
    March 4, 2017

    My favorite is the Wind Chime quilt because it is airy and different.
    Thanks!

  • Ennis A
    March 4, 2017

    Love all of these. But I have two favorites!! Happy-Go-Lucky Chevron and the Interruped Columns!! Love those and would love to be the winner! Thanks.

  • Bonnye
    March 4, 2017

    I like the folded scrappy column quilt. Great way to use up my scraps.

  • Christine M
    March 4, 2017

    I like them all, but if I had to choose it would be the Interrupted Column Quilt!

  • Gina M
    March 4, 2017

    Marvelous! Love the quick piecing techniques-especially the hexies! I wonder what our Grandmothers would say … to see the bright colors and bold graphics of todays’ modern quilts!

  • Sandra
    March 4, 2017

    Love the folded geese wall hanging. I’m thinking bright summer colors.

  • Olga Castillo
    March 4, 2017

    I like all the quilts. My first quilt to make from your new book would be the Tumbling Tumbler Column quilt. It looks like a fun quilt.

  • Carol Netzler
    March 4, 2017

    I just told my husband that I really only like to do traditional quilting. But I must say I love the column quilts! I think my favorite is the heartbeat column quilt. We have new babies coming our way, and this will make a great gift.

  • Sharon Thomsen
    March 4, 2017

    I love the heartbeat quilt! So fresh and beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Linda
    March 4, 2017

    They are all beautiful, although the Carefree Column Quilt and the Folded Flying Geese really caught my eye. This just goes to show how something very simple can be extraordinarily beautiful….

  • Barbara O
    March 4, 2017

    What a hard choice. I would have to go with two that have always challenged me, Hit and Miss & Folded Flying Geese. Always hard to do Y seams and matching flying geese.

  • Clovis
    March 4, 2017

    They all look great. The Scrappy Quilt is a great way to use up scraps. I have started saving mine. The hexi table runner would be good to make also. Thanks.

  • Carol
    March 4, 2017

    The original column quilt in those soft colors is my favorite but I really like all of the patterns. The chevron pattern is interesting and is my second favorite.

  • Marilyn Logan
    March 4, 2017

    I love the floating squares quilt pattern. It would be striking in any two colors or done in bright colors on black background.

  • Dino Candelaria
    March 4, 2017

    The are all beautiful in there own way. Some I like the colors, some the pattern but I the uniqueness of the Folded Scrappy Column and it’s potential is what attracts me the most

  • Nancy Carney
    March 4, 2017

    My favorite is the Heartbeat Column quilt. I think you could really have fun with the colors you use and the name of the quilt expresses “Life”.

  • Crystal
    March 4, 2017

    Nancy,
    It’s always hard to pick a favorite! BUT, if I have to pick just one, I am going with “Quilt to Give.” I’m especially fond of the red, white, and blue color scheme, too! Our church has just started a quilter’s group making quilts for mainly moms and babies in need, but hopefully branching out to those in nursing homes, and any others in need as the Lord leads. It’s very exciting, and I am glad to be a part of it. This quilt pattern is perfect for what we are doing! Thanks for sharing your time and talents with all of us! ~ Crystal

    Folding flying geese quilt. That’s my favorite quilt for the ages! I’m not sure any pattern can knock flying geese out of my #1 spot.

  • DonnaS
    March 4, 2017

    I love The Dotted Columns Wallhanging. I see so many ideas when I look at it. It would make a gorgeous quilt also.

  • Joyce West
    March 4, 2017

  • Nancy
    March 4, 2017

    The Happy Go Lucky Chevron pattern would be the first one I’d make. I’ve never sewn a chevron pattern and this one looks like fun!

  • Karen Jencks
    March 4, 2017

    I have two favorites. I love the Wind Chime and the Hit or Miss.

  • Karen B
    March 4, 2017

    I really like the scrappy column quilt as I could see the dimensional prairie points and scrappy fabric to be interesting to kids. I also like the floating squares as it looks so clean and refreshing…but of course, blue is also my favorite color.
    Thanks for the ideas.

  • Donna
    March 4, 2017

    Love the Carefree Columns!

  • Dorothy Schreyer
    March 4, 2017

    I have fallen for the Happy Go Lucky Chevron Quilt! Modern but fun!

  • Bev A
    March 4, 2017

    I really like the tumbler one because of the variety of sizes of the tumblers and the colors. But I also like the idea of the scrappy fold one because it sounds like a new technique and a great way to use some scraps!

  • Nancy Toupin
    March 4, 2017

    I like the happy go lucky chevron. Especially the second one. Thank you for the good ideas! These will be great patterns for the charity quilts I make as well as quilts made for gifts!

  • Joanne P.

  • Stacia

    The Quilt to Give is just marvelous – what a way to use up small scraps!

  • Candice
    March 4, 2017

    It’s always so much fun to read these blogs. It’s a wonderful inspiration infusion! I’m going to make sure our church quilting group is aware of the Quilt to Give. My personal favorite is the Wind Chime Column Quilt. (maybe because I a collection of windchimes!) I’m already envisioning it for our travel trailer. Thank you, Nancy, for these great blogs!

  • Julie Craven
    March 4, 2017

    Floating squares is my favorite. It might be that I love the blue and white together. Always my favorite color combo.

  • Cindy Holthaus
    March 4, 2017

  • Beverly
    March 4, 2017

    What a wonderful book! I would love to make at least half the projects you’ve shown here, but the one that I am sure would be made first is the carefree columns design. Half the quilts I make are donated to local charities and some of those are for children so this design made up scrappy in bright colors would be sure to please a child.

  • Nancy
    March 4, 2017

    I found this to be a hard choice, but have decided that I like the Happy Go Lucky Cevron quilt. I really like the small, floral that separates the chevron. Thanks!!

    March 4, 2017

    It was very hard to make a choice but I will go with the Happy-Go-Lucky Chevron Column Quilt, because it is all straight lines to sew and no matching.

  • Robbi Slusarick
    March 4, 2017

    I love all the quilts, but I think I would start out with the Folded Scrapy Quilt, followed by Carefree Column, then……………..Thanks for the give-away!

  • Kathy Hartwell
    March 4, 2017

    These are all beautiful but I really like the “Folded Flying Geese” but “Floating Square Column” comes in a real close second. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creations.

    Try and make it.

  • Sharlene

    I really prefer traditional quilts, but if I were to choose one to make…I would choose Carefree Column. I liked the color array that was put in that quit.

      March 4, 2017

  • Dorothy Martin
    March 4, 2017

    I LOVE floating squares b/c it reminds me of my constant dreaming to have MORE time to stitch! What a great pattern. The others are also interesting, but I would have to ‘study’ them more to enjoy. What a nice offer from generous Nancy./

  • Marie

    Hard to choose just one…I have already started pulling fabrics for Windchime, Carefree Column, and Tumbling Tumbler, cuz why make only one quilt at a time!

  • Joni
    March 4, 2017

    My favorite is the Dotted Columns Wall Hanging with the Floating Columns Quilts coming in as a close second. I would like to make the wall hanging first.

  • Vicki
    March 4, 2017

    I like the Happy Go Lucky Chevron quilt. I am not sure what is meant by folded for the scrappy quilt or the geese. I can see the column quilt with circles in baby room colors in background and the circles as bubbles or printed child or baby prints or better yet embroidered! Same light background and one for boy and one for girl. I have a couple sets of twin Baby quilts I need to make for my girlfriends as grandmother gifts.

  • Judy W.
    March 4, 2017

    My favorite is the Carefree Column quilt, but I also really like the Wind Chimes. Now that I’m retired, I spend time every day working on comfort quilts and Quilts of Valor. I’d love a chance to win your new book!

    The wind chimes.i’m drawn to the angled cuts and colors. i recently purchased a bag of strips at a quilt show. This gives me inspiration.

  • Judy Maddocks
    March 4, 2017

    I just love circles so Dotted Columns has my first vote. It was a hard decision because they were all wonderful. I may have to make some others choices as well.
    Thank you Nancy, I really appreciate you and watch all you video’s and have learned so much from you over more years
    than I can remember. Keep up the good work.

  • Pam M
    March 4, 2017

    I love the movement in the Wind Chimes quilt. You can almost hear them!

  • Mary Green

    I love ’em all for different reasons but I think my favorite now would be the chevron quilt because I see an opportunity to practice different FMQ designs. The scrap buster would help me cut down some of my scraps and the folded FG and scrappy one look fun and interesting because of the texture they would provide. I see lots of charity-quilt options here. As always, thank you, Nancy, for your great ideas and super clear instructions.

    I like the Carefree Column Quilt. I’m on a mission to improve my free-motion quilting skils and the individual blocks would make a fine opportunity to practice different designs.

    My favorite is the wind chime column quilt but I like all of them. I used the flying geese pattern to make a baby quilt and it was a hit.

    Let’s see, I watched all three of your column quilts programs on local PBS and I think I like the Wind Chimes the best. No, I believe the Dotted Circles are my favorite. Hmmm, no, no, I definitely like the Floating Squares more. Sigh, ok, no more fooling around, I like the Flying Geese most. Wow, I just like them all & find it kinda hard to pick just one (could you tell?!).

    What’s not to like! But to choose one, the Dotted Columns Wall Hanging. It’s a column with a circular twist! Thanks for providing great options.

  • Gail Beam

    The original column quilt would be the quilt for me since I am not a quilter and one that I think I might be able to do.

    What wonderful and quick inspiration! They are all beautiful—I am most drawn to the Folded Flying Geese one at this moment…but every time I look through them, I can change my mind! Decisions, decisions. . . . Thank you!

Easy construction with spectacular results I think my favorite is the flying geese. i have always wanted a flying geese quilt and I think I have found the perfect one. Thanks Miss Nancy!

  • Pat Hartley
    March 5, 2017

    Any of these quilts would be fun to make but the floating squares is the first I would go for. I love the blue on the white background. The squares really pop against the white and even though the squares appear randomly placed, just a moments attention reveals the order among the blue.

    All beautiful quilts, but I especially love the “Happy-Go-Lucky Chevron Column Quilt”. The angles draw eyes to it over and over. The colors are so uplifting. I’m always amazed at the creativity of the quilter. It is balanced so beautifully. Lines and angles in piecing with curves and designs in the quilting.

    I am 62 years old and I live in Phoenix AZ, I love the Wind Chimes and the Floating Squares because they take me home to the white sandy beaches of NJ where I spent my life walking those beaches. Living is Phoenix brings nothing but dusty brown, my memories of the Atlantic Ocean, white sandy beaches and salty breezes are with me daily.
