One of my most rewarding past times is volunteering for The Linus Connection, so when a friend asked me to design a simple paper pieced kite that would be easy to incorporate into quilts for Linus, I eagerly accepted.
Of course, I couldn’t create just one pattern! Having more adds variety. When I was done, I had the Four Patch Kite and it’s reverse and the Simple Kite and it’s reverse. Each block prints at 6″ x 8″, so it’s easy to make a nice large block by adding sashing, or, keep it as is and sprinkle a kite here and there through your quilt!
Please do take print these patterns and use them for your own non-profit group, or make a sweet summer quilt for a child that you love!
Shop Sewhooked and help keep the free patterns free!
Add your Sewhooked-related photos (that includes my patterns posted to Fandom In Stitches!) to my flickr group and you might be featured in a future post!
Love it! Thanks ka
VNot sure how to download the kites. I have an idea for a quilt for an edgy rockabilly kid. The kite would be perfect!
To download the pattern, you need to click on the name under the photo. It’ll take you right to the pattern file!
Are there written instructions with the pattern? I am a total novice.
Most paper piecing patterns don’t include instructions, but I do have a page of resources to help you learn the paper piecing technique. Once you learn, you can make any pattern. Happy stitching and please do let me know how it goes!
Please help with directions, etc, I am not an advanced quilter…
There aren’t written instructions for this exact pattern, but I do have a page of resources to help you learn paper piecing. Once you know the technique, you can make any pattern. Happy stitching!
