Revisit – Free Pattern Friday, Irish Style!

free-pattern-friday

Hello, my friends! At the moment this was posted, I’m on a Quilt Bus to the Dallas Quilt Show with my awesome quilty friend Dominae!

Because I’m out of town today, it’s easy to admit that I’m recycling an old Free Pattern Friday. 😉

I’m anxious for spring and was going through all my patterns to see which ones use GREEN. I found a lot, but nothing was more obvious than these two patterns.

Enjoy! ☘

irish flag 2017

A 6″ x 8″ pattern to paper piece, this little flag is SUPER fast and easy. It would also work for a variety of other flags by simply switching out the colors as needed.

Check out this Flags of the World Factbook from the CIA. Seriously, it’s really neat!

shamrock 2019

Whatever you call it, this shape is kind of everywhere and on everything during March. I have found one four-leaf clover in my life. Also, I kind of love the word Shamrock. It’s a good word! 5″ paper pieced and one of my older patterns, the original version dating back to pre-2010!

Check out these two beauties made by the wonderful Susan I!

Instagram Quilt Festival (#IGQuiltFest)

20190301_103448

Hello, friends!

I’m participating in the #IGQuiltFest over on Instagram. Follow me – @sewhookedjen!

#IGQuiltFest is hosted by Amy’s Creative Side and encourages quilters on Instagram to share photos daily using a variety of prompts during March for National Sewing Month!

Amy Ellis is the same creative soul who brought us the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I participated in several of those events over the years and always thought they were a super fun way to connect to and get to know other quilters! You can see my posts for those events here.

Hop on over to Instagram and get to know me, and lots of other great quilters, better!

My Favorite Things – Etsy Update!

my-favorite-things-quilt-2016

Hello, friends!

In my continued efforts to include all of my for sale PDF patterns to download in my Etsy Shop, I have now added the individual block patterns from My Favorite Things!

My Favorite Things was my 2016 block of the month featuring, as you may remember, many of my favorite things. From sewing and yarn to crayons, and paint, I love all things crafty!

I talked about My Favorite Things in this 2016 Talk to Me Tuesday.

My finished quilt (above) was quilted by Sarah’s Sewing Studio.

Individual blocks with direct links are listed below. Those are just $2.95 each. If you want the entire quilt worth of patterns and instructions, you can get that here for $9.95. All patterns are both 6″ and 12″ to allow you to choose what size quilt (or block!) you’d like to make.

Finally, a big, huge thank you for your patience as I go through the process of updating and adding my patterns to Etsy. I had almost three hundred patterns available through Craftsy, most of them individual blocks patterns like these. I’m working a little at a time to remove broken links from all of my existing patterns and adding my new 1″ scale to all patterns before adding them to Etsy.

If there is something you personally are looking for and haven’t been able to find it, please let me know and I’ll add it straight away.

You can find all my free patterns right here on Sewhooked.

My Favorite Things

Complete Quilt Pattern includes all patterns & instructions

60” x 72” (for 12” blocks)

30” x 36” (for 6” blocks)

My Favorite Things Individual Blocks (6″ & 12″) paper pieced are below.
