Welcome back for a BIG Free Pattern Friday.
Today I’m sharing several patterns in a theme!
If you’ve ever met me in “real life” or watched my Talk to Me Tuesday videos, you’ll know that I express myself with my hands. I’ve been known to accidentally smack unsuspecting passers by with my exuberant communications. Oops!
Last week, a request took my fancy (something that doesn’t happen very often) and I decided to give it a try. The result is a new hand-themed design, but it certainly isn’t my first!
First up is this 5″ paper pieced Hand. It’s a fairly simple design with a very simple name. I’ve seen it adapted for many, many quilts, including some fun fandom-themed ones! Somewhere out there is a four-fingered version that was added to a Lord of the Rings quilt. If you anyone knows where I can find that photo, please leave the link in comments. 😛
Created by request many years ago, ASL I Love You is a 6″ paper pieced pattern. I’d say this one is self-explanatory. ♥
Created by request just last week, this 10″ paper pieced pattern symbolizes strength and solidarity.
Like most things fandom, I LOVE Star Trek. I asked Vanda Chittenden if I could share this awesome 10″ pattern today because it just makes sense to include it in a post all about hands! Find it on Fandom in Stitches under Star Trek, on Vanda’s website, Quilt in Piece, or go directly to the pattern with the link below.
Last but not least, is one of my own patterns from Fandom in Stitches, the Hand of Glory. Adapted as an option for my Harry Potter Bookcase Quilt, The Project of Doom, this is a 5″ pattern to paper piece.
