I’d like to spend special thanks out to Susan P. & MJ for testing this pattern for accuracy. They were extraordinarily helpful with the process and I was able to improve the pattern greatly with their feedback. Coloring page photo by MJ. ♥

Free Pattern Friday – Strawberry

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today’s pattern is a sweet part of a previously published pattern! While designing a block some years ago for Quiltmaker, I started with a simple strawberry. That strawberry eventually ended up topping a piece of cake.

Strawberry Yum Yum, by Jennifer Ofenstein 2

Yum Yum Strawberry Cake appeared in Vol 9 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.

Today’s pattern is just the strawberry, liberated from the cake! It’s a super simple pattern to paper piece, coming in at 6″ finished.

Enjoy!

Free Pattern Friday – New HP Alphabet!

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

In honor of twenty years of Harry Potter and I shared Harry Potter-inspired patterns all month long.

Today is final July pattern and I do hope you enjoyed this magical month as much as I did!

All of my (always free!) Harry Potter patterns in one place.

 Harry Potter Title Font Alphabet Quilt

Many years ago, I shared this Harry Potter-inspired alphabet. I’ve seen many, many fandom-themed quilts, quilt backs, mini-quilts, and other fun projects using these blocks. These are super easy to recognize because they are inspired by the title fonts from the U.S. book printings, later used in the Harry Potter movies.

Today is the “big one” I promised earlier this week on Talk to Me Tuesday. I’m sharing another book-inspired alphabet, this time from the fonts used for each chapter in the books printed in the U.S.

Included in the document are 26 uppercase letters to paper piece. Each block is 5″ finished but can be enlarged as you desire. Unlike my original set, all the patterns are in one file, complete with Table of Contents!

Now let’s get wordy!

Free Pattern Friday – S.P.E.W.

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

In honor of twenty years of Harry Potter and my ongoing love of all things Harry, I’m celebrating with Harry Potter-inspired fandom patterns through July!

All of my (always free!) Harry Potter patterns in one place.

Today’s pattern is a silly fun one! I have a number of designs that I had started and never finished. S.P.E.W. is one of them. I originally designed all of my stand-alone Harry Potter inspired blocks at 5″ because they would fit on a single sheet of paper. I always thought S.P.E.W. was too small at 5″, so it lingered in the “unfinished” folder. For many years now, my patterns have been much more than a single page (imagine!) and I decided it was time to dust this one off and make it a generous 10″.

For those of you not in the know, S.P.E.W. is a society created by Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series. It stands for Stands for the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare. Read more on Pottermore.

Big thanks to Jo Minvielle, one of our many awesome Fandom in Stitches Pattern Testers, for testing this one and making sure it all worked!

Free Pattern Friday – Love Flag!

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

After YEARS and years of being asked to do so, I have created a Sewhooked Suggestion Box! The Suggestion Box is a way for you to suggest pattern ideas directly to me.  I can’t make any promises that I can (or will) create a design from every suggestion, but I will do my level best to take them all seriously.

You can find the Sewhooked Suggestion Box linked in the main menu at the top of this page. More details at the link.

Today’s pattern, Love Flag was a special request that went something like this, “I really wish a pattern like this existed…”

Well, now it does! It’s super simple to paper piece and finishes 6″ x 9″.

Extra special thanks to my Instagram followers for the encouragement and to Jessica for testing!

Enjoy. ♥

Free Pattern Friday – Sea Turtle

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Did you know I have a thing about turtles?

I love turtles. I have turtle fabric, plush turtles, turtle doo-dads, and turtle geegaws.

Thanks to my sister, I even have a turtle niece!

Also, turtle patterns!

I originally created the cleverly-named Sea Turtle for a swap back in 2007. This sweet guy has been updated for 2017 with more defined flippers and a new (optional!) two-tone look.

Sea TurtleOriginal Sea Turtle from 2007

The new version of Sea Turtle can be made as a 6″ or 10″ finished block. Make him one color or use the pattern shading to make him a lovely two color turtle.

What can you do with a sea turtle? How about making several in 10″ and combining them with a simple pieced block for a sweet child-sized quilt?

This quilt was mocked up for your viewing pleasure using Electric Quilt. 🙂
