I was searching for free quilt patterns and came across this cute pattern. It looks pretty easy so I thought I would share it with you. I know how hard it is to find cute easy quilt patterns that are free. It is a PDF so you will have to have acrobat reader to open it.
Joyce Wood, a Co Chairperson for the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild in California contacted me a while back about using the True Blue quilt block pattern I designed for their July (BOM) block of the month. She is going to send me a picture of the winner with all of the blocks they won.
Needless to say I was flabbergasted and still am. It is an honor to be contacted by others who want to make quilts from the patterns I design. It is gratifying to know that other people read my blog and like the patterns. Hopefully soon I will have time to work on more free patterns.
Not too long ago I received an email from a lady wishing to know how much fabric she needed to buy to make the Easy Black and White Quilt Pattern that I have for free on Fabric Mom. (Apparently I forgot to put this in the instructions.) So sorry friends. I asked her to share a picture of the finished quilt with me when she was finished. I got another email the other day with the finished quilt. It is beautiful. I asked her if I could share her quilt story with the photo on Fabric Mom. I was delighted when she said yes. Here is Traci’s Quilt and her story:
“I just started sewing/quilting in March of 2011. I started making my quilt in the class I was taking but got the flu so was unable to finish. I got frustrated on my own so took a break. Then I found your pattern for the black and white quilt, and decided to make that for a wedding gift for my sister in law. So I used red and gold, their colors, and finished my first quilt! I love it and am so happy that I could do that for her and her new husband. It took me about two weeks, would’ve been one week but I have a two year old son! Plus a husband who is going to college part time and working full time. Everyone at the wedding reception signed it and it looks beautiful!”
Traci, I love it! You did a wonderful job. I see many more beautiful quilts in your future.
Here is the PDF of the Instructions for the Free Easy Black and White Quilt Pattern.
I used google search and typed in free quilt patterns. Then I clicked on images. My patterns start showing up on the bottom of page 2. Yeah. Just had to share.
It has been a while sense I have been able to sit and work on a pattern to share with my fellow quilter’s. I designed this a few months ago. I finally finished the DOWNLOADABLE PDF. The finished wall hanging measures 30 x 30 inches. I hope you enjoy it. I look forward to actually finding the time to make it for myself. (This is my 501 post too). Wow!
Here is one in Christmas prints.

This PDF is for making a 10 inch quilt block.
Last year in September I posted my first free pattern that I designed using EQ5. I have sense named it Crossed Paths. I received an email a few months ago from a nice lady named Elizabeth. She was interested in making this quilt, however the pattern was for a baby quilt. She wasn’t quite sure how many blocks she would need for a queen sized quilt. She asked if I would help her figure it out. Of course I said yes. I also told her that when she was finished I would love to see a picture of her quilt. I got an email yesterday with a picture. She has kindly given me permission to post a picture of her quilt on Fabric Mom. So here it is:
Isn’t it just beautiful? I love the colors and material she used. The heart fabric is just to die for. It really brings movement to the paths. I am so excited to be able to share this with all of you. Here is a link to the pattern and a picture of the baby quilt I made using the pattern.
Here is the final step for the mystery quilt that I designed and hosted on My Quilting Buddies. It was a lot of fun. If you make one please email me with a picture. I would love to see it.
The flash washed out the color in this picture. I will take a better picture later and share it. In this picture you can’t tell that there are pinks in the quilt.
