no sew quilted Easter egg pattern

make your own quilted easter eggs

You guys all let me know on Facebook and through email yesterday how much you liked the new quilted Easter eggs I posted about, and I finally have the pattern ready for you!

I’m super excited about this one …  and what’s got me so excited about these is that the possibilities are so endless for decorating them! Different color combos, ribbons, embellishments… I mean, they’re Easter eggs, right? So you can use lots of bright colors, patterns… get flashy!

This tutorial has over 70 (!) step by step photos showing you how to make these beautiful Easter eggs (that’s what took me so long to get this tutorial done).

First, I will take you through the process of creating a basic egg. After I show you the technique, I show you more ways to change the look, by making variations in the pattern, or finishing the bottom of the egg differently.

The possibilities with these are endless, and I know that by the time you are done with one, you will probably have come up with tons more of your own creative ideas! (In fact, I would LOVE for you to tell me what you come up with down below in the comments of this post.)

The basic process to making these is very similar to making a quilted ball ornament, so if you are pretty experienced with those, you can probably get by without buying this one (what a salesperson I am, huh?) But, if you do want to check it out, I’ve shown some variations that might give you a few new ideas. :)

  how to make a quilted fabric Easter egg

 You know, when I first began writing these tutorials about a year and a half ago, I worried a little bit about the fact that they didn’t contain any drawings or diagrams, like a traditional pattern would. Sometimes these folded fabric projects can be a little bit hard to explain, and I honestly just wasn’t sure how to do that by drawing diagrams or just describing everything in words. It doesn’t help that I am the most right-brained person I know, and I just cannot look at a diagram or explanation and then simply figure out what I am supposed to do.

So, when I wrote my very first ornament tutorial, I focused on taking a ton of photos (photography is a hobby of mine anyway!), and explaining every step along the way. Basically, I wrote it like I would have wanted to learn.

Well, I recently received an email from a customer…she told me that she had tried several times to make a quilted ornament, but they just kept giving her trouble. She had a hard time getting her sides to match up, and everything just kept coming out unevenly in general.

She decided to give my tutorial a try, even though she already understood the basic technique…. and she told me that she made an ornament nearly perfectly on the very first try with my instructions! She said the step by step photos made it so easy to follow, that it felt like she was making it right along side me. That absolutely made my week. :)

That is exactly the reason that I started writing my tutorials this way.

I want them to be easy to follow, and for you to feel like I am right there explaining everything to you as you go. I also try very hard to explain things in a way that isn’t rigid… I want you to be able to take the techniques from these tutorials, and then expand on them with your own creative ideas!

I don’t have very many of these fabric tutorials for sale (as of right now I’ve only got 7 different ones for sale, and all the rest of my ornament tutorials are freebies here on my blog), and that’s because I really take a LOT of time with each one, making sure that my photos are the best they can be, and that everything is really easy to follow. I really, really appreciate all of you who have purchased one or more of my tutorials and who have gotten as addicted to making all these quilted creations as I am! We should start a club! :D

As always, if you follow this, or any of my other tutorials, and come up with any questions along the way, please don’t hesitate to ask! You can either leave a comment here on my blog, or email me, and I’ll get back to you with an answer as soon as I can. :)

Happy Easter egg making!

    Did you get my payment for the Easter Egg pattern? There’s just this little circle spinning…..

  • Anna Kirsen March 26, 2013, 5:47 am

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love the attention to detail you put into these Easter Eggs. It is those little final touches which really make your artwork stand out.

  • Mary March 26, 2013, 6:08 am

    Sorry but I can not get the free pattern. Please tell me what to do

    Thank you

      Hi Mary… did you receive an email confirming your sign up to my newsletter? On that email, there is a link… if you follow that, it will take you right to the page where the free pattern is. Thanks for joining me by the way! :)

  • Cookie March 26, 2013, 1:04 pm

    Is there any way to get the ornament pattern from you without going through Paypal? I have an account but I have NO idea what my login info is. And I would REALLY like to buy that pattern from you. :-/

    • ornamentgirl March 26, 2013, 10:37 pm

      Hey Cookie… can you send me an email to staciann@theornamentgirl.com? I tried emailing you before, but I am not sure it’s getting through. I can take your payment over the phone so you don’t have to go through PayPal, if that works for you. :)

    • ornamentgirl March 26, 2013, 10:37 pm

      Actually, I just saw that your email address is right here. I’ll try emailing you again; maybe I had the wrong address before.

    This is a bit off of the subject. Many years ago I made several pieces using folded fabric. They fit in large embroidery hoops. I would love to make more of these but can’t find my instructions. Would you or any of your followers have the instructions? Also I would like to have pattern for your Easter egg. I realize that my description is vague but hopefully someone will know what I am talking about.

    • Elaine March 25, 2014, 11:05 pm

      Marilyn, if you type “Folded star pattern for embroidery hoop” in google, you’ll see a number of options for patterns.

    Simply beautiful! Would make great gifts to pass out in Nursing Homes!

  • Mary Beth Zajac February 20, 2014, 11:41 pm

    I ordered the pattern for the Easter eggs a few days ago through PayPal and have not received it yet. Cant wait to get it!!!

    • ornamentgirl February 21, 2014, 8:10 am

      Hi Mary Beth… I just emailed the pattern to you. I am so sorry you didn’t get it immediately after you ordered! Please let me know if you don’t see an email from me in your inbox soon..

    Good Morning, I recently purchase the Easter egg pattern and have made a few already. I was wondering if I could also follow that pattern for smaller styofoam eggs?

    • Staci Ann Lowry February 26, 2014, 9:19 pm

      Hi Jan…yes, definitely. Just use fabric rectangles that are a little bit smaller. I would just cut a few of the rectangles to start, and that way you can play around and adjust the size as you figure out what works best.

      • Anonymous February 27, 2014, 8:54 pm

        Thank you! I will try that! ??

  • CB March 4, 2014, 10:26 pm

    I finished my first one! pic.twitter.com/CBwO0aeytH

    • Staci Ann Lowry March 4, 2014, 11:06 pm

      It’s beautiful! I re-tweeted your picture; I hope that’s okay! Thank you for sharing. :)

      • cb March 5, 2014, 6:34 am

        Thanks for the re-tweet! I will post more as I do them – I hope to do a full basket. One tip I can share – cut a small square from the same fabric that you start with and pin it under where you’ll be starting. That way none of the white Styrofoam will show if your folds leave a small gap. Also, my egg got rather fat from all the fabric folds. I started from the smaller end of the egg. I think next time I will begin at the larger, rounder end.

  • Deborah A March 7, 2014, 2:29 pm

    I just bought the big pattern bundle. I’m eager to get started but don’t have any styrofoam balls or eggs yet, plus I’m sure I don’t have enough pins for more than one. What is the most economical place to get them? I have tons of fabric scraps and I am looking forward to playing with them to find unique combinations.

  • Sue Phillips March 18, 2014, 9:15 am

    Just bought your pattern and does not recognize my password

    • Staci Ann Lowry March 18, 2014, 8:19 pm

      Hi Sue,
      I am going to email the pattern to you directly. Will you let me know if you don’t see it in your inbox?
      I’m sorry for the trouble!
