Free Pattern Friday – Sailor Hat

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today’s pattern was a special request from Sylvie, who needed a simple Sailor’s Hat.

I didn’t have time to try this one out myself but was lucky enough to have some willing testers, including Sylvie. Thank you to everyone who helped!

Sailor Hat is 6″ x 10″ finished with instructions to make it 10″ finished by adding simple sashing.

Want it bigger? I have a tutorial for that!

Have a pattern idea? Leave it in my Suggestion Box!

Enjoy!

TTMT #467 – Just a little fabric!

I realized after I recorded this video that the Sleeping Cat was an image I converted to be a machine embroidery design when I first started playing with my embroidery software. I did not draw the kitty, and I have not been able to contact the original artist, so I will unfortunately not be able to share it. Sorry about that!

You can find the free machine embroidery design for the Turtle at Cya Tutorials.

Free Pattern Friday – Pretzel!

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Many, many years ago (according to my computer, about twelve!) a friend asked for a pretzel pattern.

So, of course, I said yes!

I thought it would be fun to share this updated version, which has zero carbs, zero calories, and finishes at 5″. Want it bigger? I have a tutorial for that!

Enjoy!

Rainbow Cascade – Nudge for Set 14 (The End!)

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

Today is Nudge 14, our final Rainbow Cascade nudge!

Remember, Rainbow Cascade is made from a single block repeated in a rainbow of colors. Once you’ve completed your blocks, follow the chart in the pattern to piece your  Rainbow Cascade quilt top.

Haven’t started yet? It’s never too late! Thanks to my Patreon Patrons, this quilt along post will remain free for your quilting pleasure.

And here it is, my own completed quilt top!

Rainbow Cascade quilt top

A lot has happened since I first created the pattern for Rainbow Cascade. I want to thank each and every person who has joined me on what turned into an amazing journey!

I’d also like to share an extra thanks to my friends who allowed me to photograph in their beautiful home. The weather (and pollen!) haven’t been great for outdoor photography.

Did you make this quilt, too? Share in our Facebook Group or tag it & me on Instagram – #rainbowcascadeqal @sewhookedjen!

I added a white 3″ (3 1/2″ with seam allowance) outside border to my 70″ x 80″ Rainbow Cascade. My final quilt top is 76″ x 86″ (+ 1/2″ for binding). If a simple border like this is something you would like to do, I HIGHLY recommend cutting your border to the appropriate size first and pinning well before stitching. Rainbow Cascade’s many pieces are fraught with bias edges. Accurate borders will help keep your quilt top edges from distorting.

Need a little help with fabric amounts for your borders? I use the Robert Kaufman Quilting Calculator App on my smartphone. This is not a paid endorsement, I just love the app! It’s highly useful to calculate amounts for borders, backs, binding, and more.

Still Quilting Along?

Want to choose your own colors? Here’s a fill-in-the-blank color chart!

press seam allowance

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.
