Here are some cool quilt patterns that you can download for free. Fabric manufacturers release these patterns to promote specific fabric lines, but of course you can use them with any fabric you like. Those marked with * seem to me like excellent beginner projects.

Free Spirit Fabrics has the mother lode (patterns are all pdf files linked from that page): my favorites are …

A Cat's Life

Color Connectors

Flea Market Fancy
Flea Market Fancy* (aka A Hop, Skip, and a Jump from the Denyse Schmidt Quilts book)

Ginger Bliss
Ginger Bliss* (which would look great with some more subtle prints or solids to balance out the louder patterns)

Prism SeasonalPrism
Prism Seasonal* and Prism (by Whip Up’s own Weeks Ringle and her husband Bill Kerr)

And here are highlights from Robert Kaufman’s free patterns page:

And finally, two random findings from around the internet:

Fine Toothed Comb

Aunt Minnie's Tile Floor

There is of course the classic Log Cabin pattern, which deserves at least a whole post to itself (Lisa posted a while back about Log Cabin pillows) and will get one from me in short order.

If you know of any great free quilt pattern sources on the internet, let it be known in the comments!
