13 Dinosaur Quilt Patterns for the Little Dinosaur Lover in Your Life
If your child is a fan of dinosaurs, one of these patterns will surely be the perfect fit for them.
1. Dino Roar
This adorable dino quilt is by Slice of Pi Quilts, and she did a fabulous job creating this fun quilt design. This fat quarter-friendly pattern includes instructions for a pillow sham, baby-size, and twin-size quilt.
The technique used to create the dinosaurs is applique, and she also includes instructions to create a 3D triangle border, as seen in the image above. Kids will love that 3D detail.
This Elizabeth Hartman Dinosaurs quilt pattern is an excellent choice if your little one loves all types of dinosaurs. Elizabeth Hartman writes easy-to-follow and detailed quilt patterns, and this one is no different.
You will piece all the dino blocks using traditional piecing techniques without needing paper templates or applique. The pattern includes two sizes to choose from.
3. Dino Dudes
Printable templates are included in the pattern for all the applique pieces, and the finished quilt size will be approximately 42” x 48”.
4. Dino Friends
“Dino Friends” is a beginner-friendly pattern with five different dinosaur types and a volcano on the quilt top. The entire quilt top is pieced using traditional piecing. The finished quilt measures 66” x 86”.
5. T-Rex Roar
Wow! Check out this jaw-dropping t-rex design. This quilt would be a fantastic gift for kids or adults, for that matter.
The pattern uses foundation paper piecing (FPP) to create this gorgeous design and assumes you know the basics of this technique, so I wouldn’t recommend this pattern to a beginner quilter. The finished quilt measures 55” x 65”, but you could add a border or two if you want it larger.
Here is a fun dino quilt pattern that uses FPP to create this adorable “Malcolm” dinosaur. The pattern designer recommends you be an intermediate quilter since you need to know how to use FPP techniques. The finished quilt size (36” x 48”) is perfect for a baby gift or a wall-hanging quilt.
Oh my goodness, how adorable are these skating t-rexes? This fun pattern is pieced using traditional methods, no paper piecing, and would be an appropriate project for a confident beginner quilter.
The pattern includes instructions to make a quilt like the one above that measures 60” x 60”, but you could use the pattern to create single blocks or make a smaller or larger quilt top by adding or subtracting the number of blocks you make.
