Moda Bake Shop Free Pattern: Jolly Little Log Cabins

Image
Today I shared a new pattern on Moda Bake Shop called Jolly Little Log Cabins.  In this pattern, I tell you how to use quilt panels in log cabin-style blocks.  Have you ever bought a quilt panel and then been stumped on how to actually use it??  I have!  Well, this is now my go-to method for using quilt panels!




Go check out the pattern and see how easy it actually is!  You can find the pattern HERE.

Also, as I mentioned in the pattern, I am going to be making one of these blocks each week until I have enough to make a quilt!  So, please join me if you'd like too!!  Buy a To Be Jolly fat quarter bundle (which comes with the panel) or use a panel you have already and start block making!  I'll probably try to share mine every Friday (or there about) on Instagram.  When you share your blocks, tag me on Instagram- @jessicadayon and use the hashtags- #jessicadayonpatterns and #jollylittlelogcabins!


Let me know if you have any questions!
Talk to you soon,


Jessica

Free Pattern: Twinkle Baby Quilt

Image
Today, I am excited to share the free Twinkle Baby Quilt pattern!  This summer I have 6 baby quilts to make!!  So I am going to be writing some new baby quilt patterns.  This is the first one.

I love making baby quilts because they are such a quick and satisfying finish!  I had such fun designing and making this quilt.  I will definitely be making more of them in the future!  And wait until you see how this one will be quilted up!!  I wanted to share the pattern right away so I didn't quilt it yet but as soon as its finished, I'll share what the quilting looks like on Instagram, so be sure you are following me :)



As always, I've worked really hard to give you an easy-to-follow pattern.  This, and all of my patterns, include with step-by-step photos for making the quilt.  I hope you love this pattern as much as I do!
Here is the link to the PDF!

Free Quilt Pattern: Fanlight Quilt

Image
Today, I am excited to re-release my Fanlight Quilt pattern as a free pattern!  I designed, made, wrote, and released this pattern last summer but as I am transitioning my patterns to free patterns some have gotten set aside until I am ready to re-release them as free ones.  Well, the time has come for this pattern to be re-released!

This pattern is made with a layer cake plus background and borders.  Everyone I hear from says that they love using layer cakes (10" squares) and that they are always looking for more layer cake patterns and I agree!  I find myself gravitating toward that specific precut pretty often but then I just hang on to them.  Well, one of the many things I love about this pattern is that you can show off the gorgeous prints in the layer cake in relatively large blocks...perfect when you really what the fabric to be the star!

To make this version of the quilt, I used Feed Sacks: True Blue by Linzee Kull McCray for Moda Fabrics + Supplies.  I just adore Linzee…
