TTMT #585 – Cushy Job

I apologize for the background noise. Our a/c compressor was on almost the entire time I was recording and I didn’t notice at all. I’m totally a professional. 😛

Free Pattern Friday – Clover All Over Quilt

Clover All Over quilt in fabric.jpg

66” x 82” pieced (plus binding)

Blocks are 14” (14 1/2” with seam allowance)

Clover All Over was designed to use a custom jelly roll that my friends over at Talk To Me Tuesday and I created for our 2019 swap. We each shared 2 1/2” fabric strips we loved, and then sorted them all into new jelly rolls for each of us to share!

Watch my video about this quilt top!

Clovers fabric pull

I used the fabric received from my jelly roll swap, plus a variety of fabrics pulled from my stash for backgrounds. 

Clovers Pre Cut

My fabric, cut and ready to go!

Clovers cornerstones These blocks go together VERY quickly. I sorted and chain pieced everything to make it go faster!

☘ Printable copy of CLOVER ALL OVER ☘ 

Clover All Over is a super simple quilt to make. It requires one block that is repeated, sashing, and cornerstones. Make it solid or make it scrappy! An optional coloring sheet can be found on the last page of the printable instructions.

Clovers All Over not scrappy

These instructions only use a few colors for simplicity in explanation.  Use the fabrics that speak to you!

Adapt as needed for your own use.

Free Pattern Friday – Smiling Santa Gift Bag

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I’m doing something a little different today and sharing an updated version of a tutorial I wrote years ago.

Smiling Santa Giftbag was a “Way Back Craft” in 2008, originally created by me for my previous website in 2000.

2000. Wow!

This easy-peasy tutorial that can be completed entirely by hand or with a little sewing machine assistance if you’d like.

I’ve added a face shape template or you can wing the shape for your own unique Santa!
