Free 6″ paper pieced pattern by Jennifer Ofenstein
The free pattern that I have received some of the most heart-felt emails and comments about over the years is the original 5″ “ASL I Love You.”
For some time, I have been thinking I’d like to update that pattern. For one, I never gave the original a thumbnail, which kind of made me crazy. Details count, you know? I also though this one pattern should be a wee bit bigger.
I present it to you today, version two of ASL (American Sign Language) “I Love You”. This is a 6″ (6 1/2″ unfinished) paper pieced pattern, in both color and black and white for your printing convenience.
You know I can’t play with a pattern without creating some fun layouts in EQ7! What’s a girl to do with spiffy quilting software if not share ideas with her friends?
The cornerstones above were inspired by Cat Magraith’s free heart pattern.
A simpler layout, with the block as the center piece. I really like this one. I think it would make a great cushion cover!
Add your Sewhooked-related photos to my flickr group and you might be featured in a future post.
Have a very happy Saturday!
Hi Jennifer, I love the pattern, and the different layouts. As you’re playing around with EQ7, would you make some layouts of non-white hands?
Done and added to the post! Thanks for the suggestion!
They look great!
I love this, we have alot of profoundly deaf relatives on my hubby’s side and this makes a wonderful label for family quilts. I don’t know if I’ve thanked you for this, if not THANK YOU!!
It is my pleasure, Virginia. This is one of the first pattern requests I ever took, and it’s been such a happy-making pattern, I love that I’ve been able to share it!
This is beautiful! I love it! Thanks for sharing.
Stumbled across this by accident and was thrilled. My daughter graduates in May with an English major and an ASL minor. Made it today and I am thrilled with the results. She is really going to be suprised and she is really going to love it. Thank you so much!
Hi Kalynn,I’m absolutely thrilled to hear that! Big congrats to your daughter on your upcoming graduation. 🙂
