Free Pattern Friday – Peeps Chicks!

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

WAY back in 2013, I designed Bunny Peeps for a Blog Hop.

Peeps! 10" paper pieced patternBunny Peeps

Ever since sharing this cutie pie pattern, I’ve had many, many requests for Peeps Chicks.

Thank you to the anonymous person who left a message reminding me of that fact. 😉

This isn’t my first go at designing these squishy little sugar bombs. I’ve scrapped more than one version of this pattern after unsuccessfully capturing their Peep-ness.

I’m pretty sure I’ve got it this time!

Chicks come in 2 sizes, 2.5″ x 5″ (finished) and 5″ x 10″ (finished). Make one or make a flock!

Enjoy!

Another finish for 2018

How about this gorgeous Rainbow Cascade finish from Susan?!

(Reblogged Post from http://soozspeak.blog/2018/03/25/another-finish-for-2018/)

Finished my Rainbow Cascade quilt which was designed by Jennifer Ofenstein at Sewhooked.com.  I love this quilt!!!  It is being donated to Theatre Alliance of Winston-Salem for them to raffle off.

Right now I’m working on a “emergency” quilt. I started it yesterday and got the blocks finished today.  Tomorrow I’ll join the blocks and get it ready for quilting.  I will be quilting this one myself and hope to have it completed and in the mail to it’s recipient by Friday.  Fingers are crossed!  When I get it done, I’ll take a picture and post it after the recipient gets it.

Rainbow Cascade – Nudge for Set 13

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

This is your Set 13 nudge – a friendly reminder to help keep you on track with your Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along.

We have just ONE MORE NUDGE to go!

Remember, Rainbow Cascade is made from a single block repeated in a rainbow of colors. Once you’ve completed your blocks, follow the chart in the pattern to piece your  Rainbow Cascade quilt top.

#rainbowcascadeqal #recycling

I’m in the finishing stages for my own Rainbow Cascade and can’t wait to show you my finished quilt top on April 9! Optional for you, and not included in the original instructions: I will be adding a white outside border to the 70″ x 80″ version I am making to make the blocks “float.”

More #secondarypattern from #rainbowcascadeqal! Even though I still have more blocks to make, I couldn't resist piecing together a couple of columns! #sewhookedpattern free on sewhooked.com. #paperpieced

Want to choose your own colors? Here’s a fill-in-the-blank color chart!

press seam allowance

I highly recommend using an Add-A Quarter-Ruler during paper piecing to minimize bulk AND to press seams open when piecing paper pieced sections together. You’ll find more instructions in the pattern document.

4th Annual Fat Quarter Lotto!

Hello, my friends!

Just checking in to say that there isn’t a free pattern today. I’m working flat out to finish my Rainbow Cascade so that I can have it to show off in April for our final quilt along post.

Even though I don’t have a new freebie to share, it is time to make one of my FAVORITE announcements!

It’s time for the 4th Annual Fat Quarter Lotto!

2018 Fat Quarter Lotto

April is my birthday month and you’re invited help me celebrate by participating in the 4th Annual Fat Quarter Lotto! 

It’s super easy – send up to four fat quarters & I’ll draw a winner (or winners) “live” on Talk to Me Tuesday on April 24, 2018. There will be 1 winner per 50 fat quarters. Last year we had two winners with 50 fat quarters each!

Want an extra entry? Include orphan blocks for The Linus Connection! The Linus Connection is an Austin, TX-based blanket making charity. I use orphan quilt blocks to make quilts to donate. I also share orphan blocks with fellow volunteers to make quilts. Any orphan quilt blocks collected will be turned into quilts for kids in crisis in Central Texas. This collection is personally done by me, Jennifer Ofenstein, and is not sponsored or endorsed by The Linus Connection.

The Sewhooked Fat Quarter Lotto is not a sponsored event and I am not eligible to win. This is just my way to say Thank You for another fun year of sharing! There is no purchase necessary and no obligation to play. I will pay all return postage.

Click for Details

All entries must be received by April 21, 2018.
