Five Best Camping Quilt Patterns For Your Camping Quilt Project

Updated on October 11, 2010

Nothing feels quite like quilted beddings as they’re soft, warm, and comfortable they keep you hugging them like the sun’s never going to rise. That’s why a lot of sleeping bags, camping air mattresses and other camping sleeping gears seek to provide the same comfort that will make people fall in love with them. Some people make their own quilts instead of shelling out some cash for ready-made ones and you can make your own too.

When making quilts, the most recommended fabric will be cotton. Cotton makes sheets very comfortable because they’re good for any kind of weather. They warm you up quickly during cold nights and somehow cool you on warm ones by absorbing moisture.

Making your own quilt can be a very engaging and an enjoyable project: it allows you to personalize your quilt as well as enjoy seeing the progress as you sew the fabric pieces together. Among the most common kind of quilts are block quilts. These ones have fabric square pieces of equal sizes sewn together. You can get camping quilt fabrics conveniently cut into squares to spare you the effort of cutting fabric and allow you to go straight to the fun part.

Another great part of making your own quilt is that you get to choose the patterns. It’s up to you to pick the theme. If you’re giving a camping quilt as a gift, having a customized theme will add a personal touch to your gift and delight the receiver even more. For inspirations when it comes to camping quilt patterns, here are some great buys.
