Free Pattern Friday – Mug O Love

free-pattern-friday

Hello, my amazing friends! Thank you so much for your very positive response to Free Pattern Friday!

I’ll keep at it as long as you continue to enjoy it. 🙂

Mug O Love is a 5″ pattern originally designed for the Beat the Winter Blues Blog Hop + Giveaways hosted by Michele from The Quilting Gallery. It still makes me think warm thoughts of my favorite beverages.

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!

Summer Sue Makeover Continues!

It’s September now, and while hints of autumn may be in the air other places in the world, in Austin it’s still hot and sticky and feels like summer!

It’s a good thing, too, because the Summer Sue Makeover to update Sunbonnet Sue’s Magical Friends is not quite done!

Today I bring you two updated sets from the Way Back files: Fanciful Fairies and Friendly Familiars. Both sets have been completely updated, and as with the previously updated set, each individual block is now available as a stand alone pattern exclusively from Craftsy!

How much do I love Sunbonnet Sue? She has her own page here on Sewhooked!

Fanciful Fairies includes 6 full color patterns of sweet fairies!

 

Tooth Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

My personal favorite is the Tooth Fairy. She’s a busy little lady!

Tulip Fairy (paper pieced), $2 on Craftsy

The Tulip Fairy always makes me think of my sister. Tulips are her favorite flower!

Rose Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Rose Fairy reminds you to take time for the sweet things in life.

Flower Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Flower Fairy is bringing a smile to a friend.

Fairy Godmother (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Everyone needs a Fairy Godmother!

Daisy Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Daisy Fairy is a close second for my favorite. I just love how she’s perched so sweetly!

Bonus Pattern! Water Fairy (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Water Fairy is a bonus pattern not included with the set. When I was originally drafting these patterns several years ago for a book that ended up not being published, she was an extra that didn’t make the cut. Here she is now, in her sweet glory!

Friendly Familiars (Paper Pieced Blocks) , $7 on Craftsy

If you have been around Sewhooked for any length of time, you know that I love whimsy and magic.  Friendly Familiars is one of the original sets of patterns that were destined for the book-that-wasn’t. I can’t imagine a little witch or wizard worth his (or her!) salt not enjoying the company of a magical creature!

Wizard with Toad (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

I always imagined this to be a little wizard with a toad he found in the garden. He also reminds me of one of my all time favorite Harry Potter characters, Neville Longbottom!

Wizard with Snake (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Snakes tend to be associated with evil. Bad boys need friends, too, right?

Wizard with Rat (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

The question that I ask myself about this pattern is what this Wizard is about to do. I’m voting for conjuring cheese for his rat!

Witch with Owl (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Owls are just magical by nature, aren’t they? This little witch is whispering secrets to her feathery friend!

Witch with Cat (paper pieced) , $2 on Craftsy

Cats are by far my own favorite magical creature, having had quite a few of my own over the years!

There are still two sets to be updated: Busy Bodies and Wand Wielders. They’re in progress and I hope to have them to you soon! After that, I hope to have some NEW Sues to share!

A Friendly Game

A Friendly Game

I won’t lie to you, I am not a chess player.

My husband and son are, though, and they both thought chess quilt blocks would be a great idea!

A Friendly Game

Each chess piece measures 2″ x 5″ (2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ unfinished) with additional instructions to make 5″ (5 1/2″ unfinished) blocks.

The mock up I’ve done above in EQ7 is the wall hanging I’m planning for my hubby. He needs a little quilted love at work!

A Friendly Game

In addition to the patterns for the individual blocks, the pattern also includes a handy chart to help you make a chess quilt! Use the patterns as-is for a 40″ x 40″ quilt, or enlarge (or reduce!) for a quilt the size of your choice!

A Friendly Game

chess pieces to paper piece
6 – 2” x 5” (2 1/2” x 5 1/2” unfinished)
5” (5 1/2” unfinished) with side sashing

Included six paper pieced chess patterns and a simple chart to help create your own chessboard quilt!

Pattern also available through Craftsy!

My patterns, as always, as as simple as I can make them for ease of printing and understanding. Whenever possible, I make patterns printable in black and white. After all, we’d rather spend money on fabric than ink for our patterns!
