Free Pattern Friday – You are my Sunshine


Welcome back for Free Pattern Friday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Need some green? Check out last week’s Free Pattern Friday!

There is nothing I love more than a clear blue sky and some spring sunshine. Having my kids home from college for Spring Break has made even the cloudy days feel clear and blue!

Today, I have a sweet 5″ pattern to paper piece. Want a different size? I can help with that.

Free Pattern: Simple Kites

Four Patch Kite

One of my most rewarding past times is volunteering for The Linus Connection, so when a friend asked me to design a simple paper pieced kite that would be easy to incorporate into quilts for Linus, I eagerly accepted.

Of course, I couldn’t create just one pattern! Having more adds variety.  When I was done, I had the Four Patch Kite and it’s reverse and the Simple Kite and it’s reverse.  Each block prints at 6″ x 8″, so it’s easy to make a nice large block by adding sashing, or, keep it as is and sprinkle a kite here and there through your quilt!

Please do take print these patterns and use them for your own non-profit group, or make a sweet summer quilt for a child that you love!
