The overlays in today’s video are completely off, but I’m leaving it because, well, I’m human like that. I hope you don’t find it too distracting!

New Pattern! French Macarons to Paper Piece or Hand Embroider

french macaron title

Fresh from the Sewhooked Suggestion box, with BIG thanks to Robin B for the idea, I’m pleased to share French Macarons, a new pattern now available in my Craftsy Shop.

This pattern is dedicated o $10+ Patron Susan Pepper. Thank you for your support, Susan!

This $2.95 pattern includes:

  • 6 – 4” x 6” individual Macarons patterns to make a 12” pattern to paper piece (12 1/2” unfinished)
  • 10” design to hand embroider (stitch on 12 1/2” or larger fabric)

Get it on Craftsy

Robin’s suggestion was for French Macarons to paper piece. I wanted a simple way to make as many of these delectable treats as you wanted for your quilt, so instead of designing an overall block, I went for something more modular. Make as many as you like. Make them one color or mix it up for a fun, colorful selection!

I’ve also been wanting to include more hand embroidered designs in my patterns. The embroidery is included here as a bonus to see how you like it as an option. If hand embroidery is something you’d like to see more of my patterns, let me know!

Free Pattern Friday – Perennial Pleasures

free-pattern-friday

Over the years, I’ve designed a lot of patterns, some for myself, some for friends or events. If I were to guess (which I totally am!), I’d say I have as many (or more!) free patterns as I do for sale patterns. It might not be the best business strategy, but it satisfies my need to share. Your pattern purchases keep me in fabric and out of trouble, so I don’t have much to complain about. 😉

To make a long story short, I thought it would be fun to feature some of the many, many free patterns I’ve designed over the years, with a smattering of new ones thrown in. Because I’m a sucker for alliteration, we’ll do it on Fridays.

Free Pattern Friday has a nice ring to it!

Originally designed for the Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop, hosted right here on Sewhooked back in 2012, Perennial Pleasures seems like a great place to start. Originally shared on my birthday, this 10″ block includes pattern pieces for a butterfly or a glass of wine, the choice is up to you!

Pretty Pretty Pinwheel

As I’ve been working my through tidying up my Free Pattern page, it occured to me that it has been some time since I’ve shared a free non-fandom pattern.
Well, we can’t have that, now can we?
Here is a sweet little pattern that I’ve dubbed Pretty Pretty Pinwheel.  I think you’ll find fun and easy to piece.
Once the units are made, it goes together like a four-patch. If you chain piece the similar units, you’ll find it goes even faster!

Pretty Pretty Pinwheel!

You can download the 6 inch Pretty Pretty Pinwheel here or get it on Craftsy!

New free pattern in progress!

 

The pattern is three colors plus a background fabric. Each color is indicated by a different texture. To make it piecing easy, I just penned in where the colors go.

And of course, I have to create a quilt layout or two with EQ7!

Here are a couple more fun color variations. I just love how simple and easy this sweet pinwheel is!

LOVE the negative space in this one!
