Free Pattern Friday – Birdbath

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today’s pattern is inspired and dedicated to my lovely friend, Linda B.

On a whim, I'm auditioning a new sparklie in the birdbath. It's a sweet glass ball that @vivaciouswordsmith added to our donate pile. I've got @thelinusconnection emails to respond to, quilts to bind and more orphan blocks to sort, but coffee and breakfas

Linda moved out of state in the autumn. Before she left, she gave me her very lovely birdbath. I think of her every time I see it. ♥

Birdbath is 10″ paper pieced (10 1/2″ with seam allowance). The piecing is simple and it comes together very quickly. I would recommend trimming the beaks and tummies closely to help reduce bulk. This is a good spot to use your Add-An-Eighth Ruler if you have it.

Free Pattern Friday – Winter Mittens

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

It’s good to be back after a break to spend time with family and friends for the holidays and New Year.

I’d like to take a moment to thank all of my Patreon Patrons for helping to keep Free Pattern Friday going. ♥ It’s because of your patronage that I am able to continue offering free patterns. More details below today’s free pattern.

Today’s pattern is inspired by memories of my now-adult kiddos when they were wee little kids wearing mittens. I used to make them myself with a long crochet cord attaching the two mittens that I would then thread through their coat sleeves. When they’d take the mittens off, they’d dangle loosely just below their cuffs. We never lost a single pair!

Winter Mittens are 10″ paper pieced (10 1/2″ with seam allowance) and include an option “string” design to hand embroider.

Free Pattern Friday – Awareness

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Hello, my friends.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but as anyone who has ever been affected by breast cancer or literally any other kind of cancer knows, you don’t need an official calendar month to be aware.

There is so much more I could say here, but suffice it to say, that this is a battle we all share. ♥

I share today’s patterns with that in mind.

Some years ago, a lovely woman named Grace asked if I could design a bikini top for a quilt she’d be donating to a fundraiser to support Save the Tatas.

Below, you’ll find an updated version of the Bikini Top, plus my Heart with a Cause pattern. Both are 5″ and can be easily enlarged if you so choose.

Rainbow Cascade – Nudge for Set 3

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

Rainbow Cascade is the single 10″ paper pieced block you see above, made in a literal rainbow of colors, all put together to create one stunning quilt!

The free pattern includes complete paper pieced patterns in shaded & unshaded versions, 1″ scale for proper printing, suggested cutting instructions to make piecing (and chain piecing!) easier, Coloring Pages for all quilt sizes, fabric amounts needed, and printing permission in case you’d like to print at a copy shop.

Need to learn to paper piece? I can help with that!

On the second and fourth Mondays of each month through April, I’ll be sharing a nudge and letting you know which blocks to make next.

To make this as easy as possible, and to not tie you down to a single quilt along (because we all know that never works!),  you will never need to make more than four blocks in a two-week period.

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.
