Free Pattern Friday – Descent

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today, I’m pleased to be sharing a pattern that started out as a bit of a doodle during the planning stage of Rainbow Cascade.

Descent is a 10″ pattern to paper piece. It looks much more difficult than it really is. I hope you’ll give it a try!

de·scent

Free Pattern Friday – Chocolate Box

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

As promised, we’re back to quilt patterns this week!

Today’s freebie, Chocolate Box, is a larger, simplified version of a traditional Garden Lattice block. It includes instructions for both a traditionally pieced 14″ finished block and a 6″ paper pieced pattern that can be enlarged if desired.

I’ve included everything you need to use directional fabrics for fussy cutting. I’ve made two quilts using this pattern so far and both were fussy cut to feature fun fabrics!

First #finish of 2016! I started to make my #ufo2016 list yesterday and couldn't bear to have this one on there once again. Beautiful Australia themed fabrics were a gift from my friend Cat. I paired them with #benartex Fossil Fern and used my Chocolate B

I created this 70″ x 84″ version for myself using fabrics from Australia that the lovely Cat Magraith gifted me over several years. I added Fossil Fern to create a lovely, snuggly quilt. The instructions to make this colorway are included.

Quilt for Tara (Chocolate Box)

This little quilt gave chocolate box its name. It was gifted to my friend Cat’s daughter.

Free Pattern Friday – Sitting Hen

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I’m still in the mood for Spring, so I thought we’d continue with that theme and share a fun, sweet pattern designed as a Mother’s Day freebie some years ago.

Sitting Hen is 5″ paper pieced, and can be easily enlarged using this tutorial.

Free Pattern – Chocolate Box!

Chocolate Box, a free 14

Download Free Pattern or Get it Free on Craftsy!

Twice now, I’ve shared fun projects made with this very simple traditionally pieced block above. I’ve had several requests to share this free pattern, and you know I love to share, so here you go!

This pattern is absolutely free because I think it is perfect for charity quilts. I designed it to be used with novelty prints, which make absolutely wonderful quilts for children. I plan to make several out of fabric I have on hand for The Linus Connection.

During my research to make sure this was indeed my own design, I did discover a similar free pattern from McCall’s called Garden Path.  The McCall’s block is made with different sized fabric cuts but creates a similar effect. Their version is also free. You can find it here.

Just like all of my patterns, Chocolate Box was designed in EQ!

Included in the free Chocolate Box pattern are the instructions for the traditionally pieced 14″ block (14 1/2″ with seam allowance) and a 6″ paper pieced version, because that’s what I do!

Also included is a chart and fabric amounts for making the Australian Quilt (shown below).

The Chocolate Box pattern started with The Chocolate Challenge, a friendly challenge between my local sewing friends taken up at our 2014 Quilt Retreat. We all swapped a variety of chocolate themed fabric and brought back a completed project for 2014. This one is mine (still to be quilted!)

Australia Quilt

I loved my Chocolate quilt so much that I decided to use the same pattern to create a quilt with a collection of Australian-themed patterns that were gifted to me by my friend Cat from Adelaide, SA, over the course several years. With the help of some Fossil Fern fabric, I created this 70″ x 84″ quilt top (also to be quilted!). The layout instructions and fabric amounts for this quilt are included for free in the Chocolate Box pattern.

Please use Chocolate Box with my blessing for your own personal use or even better, to make a quilt for your favorite blanket charity!

Vol11-blog-tour-coming-socialmedia_66016It’s almost time for another wonderful issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks and I’m excited to once again be included amongst some of the most talented designers in the world! Look for the blog tour coming May 5 -8!

Have a wonderful, quilty day!

St. Patrick Shamrock!

Shamrock Sample

Are you wearing green today? Even more importantly, do you have green fabric?

Good, because I have a brand new free paper pieced pattern to share with you!

I thought a fun and simple Shamrock pattern would be just the thing to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

5″ paper pieced Shamrock Pattern

After years of hand-drafting all my patterns in Photoshop, I’ve been learning  EQ7. The learning curve is finally getting smaller and I still prefer to color and number my own patterns in Photoshop, but I have discovered that one of my favorite things to do with EQ7 are fun quilt layouts! This one is super simple, but I hope it inspires you to create a little Shamrock quilt of your own!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day…and happy quilting!

Paper Piecing – Boobalicious

Free on Craftsy

or Get Print from Google Drive

I got a great email request last week from Grace.  She was inspired by Shae’s Y-Front quilt to make a bra-themed quilt to raffle off as part of a fundraiser the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure.  I don’t generally take commissions, but I will do a special request, especially when it’s something that touches my heart!

Breast cancer has touched my life through friends and family.  Any step forward is a step in the right direction.  This pattern is a teeny tiny contribution!

Use it with my blessing to make quilts to remind you to help Save the Tatas!
