Free Pattern Friday – Birdbath

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today’s pattern is inspired and dedicated to my lovely friend, Linda B.

On a whim, I'm auditioning a new sparklie in the birdbath. It's a sweet glass ball that @vivaciouswordsmith added to our donate pile. I've got @thelinusconnection emails to respond to, quilts to bind and more orphan blocks to sort, but coffee and breakfas

Linda moved out of state in the autumn. Before she left, she gave me her very lovely birdbath. I think of her every time I see it. ♥

Birdbath is 10″ paper pieced (10 1/2″ with seam allowance). The piecing is simple and it comes together very quickly. I would recommend trimming the beaks and tummies closely to help reduce bulk. This is a good spot to use your Add-An-Eighth Ruler if you have it.

I highly recommend using an Add-A Quarter-Ruler during paper piecing to minimize bulk AND to press seams open when piecing paper pieced sections together. You’ll find more instructions in the pattern document.

Free Pattern Friday – Winter Mittens

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

It’s good to be back after a break to spend time with family and friends for the holidays and New Year.

I’d like to take a moment to thank all of my Patreon Patrons for helping to keep Free Pattern Friday going. ♥ It’s because of your patronage that I am able to continue offering free patterns. More details below today’s free pattern.

Today’s pattern is inspired by memories of my now-adult kiddos when they were wee little kids wearing mittens. I used to make them myself with a long crochet cord attaching the two mittens that I would then thread through their coat sleeves. When they’d take the mittens off, they’d dangle loosely just below their cuffs. We never lost a single pair!

Winter Mittens are 10″ paper pieced (10 1/2″ with seam allowance) and include an option “string” design to hand embroider.

TTMT #453 – 2017 Wrap Up

Hello, my dear friends!

Welcome to my first TTMT for 2018. I had an eye-opening time going through my To Do & UFO list and seeing what I got done. I didn’t include all of my new patterns published in 2017, but I do hope to do that for next week’s video.
