Lately I’ve been thinking about the different kinds of blankets there are. Like is there a difference between a blanket and an afghan or are those just synonyms? I’m not sure about the answer to that but I do know that I think quilts are a little bit different, even when they are crochet quilts. Technically a quilt has stuffing in the middle, so crochet blankets that are stuffed are quilts. And then there are unstuffed blankets that probably don’t technically qualify as quilts but their designs are drawn from those of quilts. What do you think makes a blanket a quilt? Here’s my roundup of crochet quilt patterns and quilt-inspired crochet patterns.

Crochet Quilt Patterns

These are crochet blanket patterns that include stuffing, making them, in my eyes, true quilts. The blanket at the top of this post, by Julie Blagojevich, is one example. Here are some more:

Although not quite stuffed, this blanket is layered, giving it quilt status for me. It’s an old Leisure Arts pattern. Image on Ravelry by CyndieLynn.

Quilt-Inspired Crochet Patterns

These patterns aren’t designed to be backed / stuffed so they aren’t true quilts but they’re designed with inspiration from quilt designs.
