Bea’s Blooms Quilt

meadow2

This is my Bea’s Blooms quilt, just finished for my daughter Beatrix. I kinda love it! I was asked to be a part of Shari Butler’s Blog Tour for her new collection “In The Meadow” for Sweet Bee Designs. I received the fabrics and really fell in love!

I loved the happy colors and especially appreciated how many different really fun white background prints there were. I decided I wanted to make a quilt that really featured the backgrounds. Bea’s Blooms is made completely with Half Hexie’s , using the layout to create simple flowers. I made this quilt pretty small in size, because in my experience those are the quilts that will become “woobies” for little ones, as they can easily carry them around themselves.

See, she loves it already!

Sewing these Half Hexie’s is really simple and quick, the only thing you need to pay attention to is the layout in order to create the flowers with fabric placement.

P.S.

I even used some of my In The Meadow Fabrics for my Row #7 in my Row Along Quilt. It’s the row on the bottom, doesn’t it look great!?

Cheese

This is one of my very favorite quilts that I have ever made and just happens to be one of the easiest and quickest to finish. I even did the machine quilting myself on my regular Pfaff machine. It was featured years ago in the Better Homes & Gardens magazine Quilts and More but since it is now retired from that, I have decided to add it to our Free patterns. It is a great go to quilt when you have a beautiful collection of fabrics that hold their own and you don’t want to chop them up to much. Or if you just want to showcase some favorite prints together. This quilt is a combo of designs I loved from 3 of my favorite fabric companies, Adornit, Riley Blake & Alexander Henry. I hope you enjoy the pattern and make one or a few. I’m planning on starting one with the Everyday Eden Fabrics combined with some other faves from my stash. We also have a tutorial to help with achieving perfect points  on your triangles.

Enjoy!

Sunny Chevron Quilt

Sunny Chevron Free Quilt Pattern

This is our Sunny Chevron Quilt and we are giving you the pattern for free! I really loved making this and it was super simple. Our pattern is written for a small Throw size as shown in our picture or a Queen size if you would like a larger version. The design works with a number of fabric choices, but we opted for a white background and a mixture of several Riley Blake Collections. We use this pattern for some of our Beginning Quilting classes and some of our students have made this with a Black Background, the results were also wonderful. This pattern is VERY Beginner friendly, so don’t be nervous, just get stitching!

Beatrix Quilt

Yay! Another free quilt pattern from us to you! This is a fantastic, quick quilt that really shows off your fabrics. I made this for a little girl, but I am also currently making one for my little boy that I will share soon. It is a good small throw size, so that they can cuddle up with it, and drag it around. I love this quilt! You will make it a million times, it is a great go to pattern. I like to add the applique’ and initial, but that is optional. Enjoy!

Preppy Pinwheels

I just love pinwheels! I use them in quilts whenever possible, so that led me to thinking why not make a quilt that is all pinwheels?! This is “Preppy Pinwheels”, it is a free pattern from us to you. Many of our Beginning Quilting students have been making this quilt lately, it is a wonderful first quilt. It is simple, especially if you use Thangles (in the 3″ size, 1 package is needed) . We made every pinwheel a different fabric, so it  can also be a great use of scrap!

P.S. We have a great tutorial on how to use Thangles here!

Daisy Baby


If I have a little girl someday, I will give her this quilt. I love the simplicity of the design and the soft colors. I made this quilt using the Daisy Cottage collection of fabrics, but it could be made with anything that you love. These fabrics are very girly, but you can change the fabrics to work wonderfully for a boy. This is a great go- to baby quilt for all of those baby showers you will be attending this spring. We are giving you the pattern, it is easy and fast and very beginner friendly. Just follow the link below for the instructions. This quilt is designed to work with 2 sets of 5″ charm squares plus a complimentary fabric.
