36 Midwestern Quilt Patterns

One of our most popular blog posts in recent weeks was Ain’t That America: 50 Regional Quilt Patterns and Tutorials, and our readers overwhelming loved our Midwestern quilt section more than any other region! It’s hard to deny the appeal of the Midwest and Midwestern quilts in particular. Nestled in the heart of the US, the Midwest is home to picturesque woodlands, seas of prairie and farmland, and of course, the Great Lakes. Midwestern quilts, much like the region itself, celebrate traditional American quilt-making and quilt patterns, combining classic designs like the log cabin or star pattern with bright and lively colors. So, to celebrate all things Midwest, we’ve broken down some of our favorite traditional quilt patterns and paired them with each state in the Midwest that inspired them, from the bustling streets of Chicago in Illinois to the gorgeous plains of the Dakotas. Whether you live in the America’s heartland yourself or are just looking for a fun, new quilting project, our list of Midwestern-inspired quilts is just what you need!
