I love making smaller quilts to use as wall hangings and this particular pattern has been on my to do list for sometime. This is a smaller version of my free Quilt of Valor pattern, Land of the Free.
If you enjoy making half-square triangle blocks this is definitely the pattern for you....classic mosaic blocks given a sleek contemporary look with modern prints.
I ran across the latest Celebrate Seuss at my favorite local quilt shop and just knew I had to have it! Since I’m a shade older than average-age Seuss fans, it seemed more appropriate to use it for my “grand” niece Maggie’s first birthday. This is definitely larger than your normal baby quilt but I wanted to make it a size she could “grow” into. I think every child goes through a Dr. Seuss phase particularly as they are learning to read. I remember reading most of these titles to my baby sister when she was Maggie’s age and then watching her read them to herself (although by then she pretty much had them memorized).
I love patterns with chain links…very modern looking with lots of open spaces for free motion quilting, a passion of mine. It looks complicated but is definitely one of those patterns that is easier than it looks.
I love taking antique quilt blocks and using them in a contemporary-styled quilt. The Kansas City Star Block used in this quilt was introduced in 1937.
This basic two-block design is log-cabin like in structure and takes advantage of strip piecing to go together quickly.
This fun quilt pattern is made up of three different stars inter-weaved with an X block to provide the square border effect surrounding each star.
This pattern is charm pack friendly and a great beginner pattern for the novice quilter. I've included fabric requirements for crib, lap, twin, and queen sized quilts
