Free Quilt Pattern: Baby Love Quilt

Image
Today, I am excited to share a new, free, baby quilt pattern- Baby Love! 




This quilt pattern is super fast and super fun.  You can easily start and finish this top in an afternoon!

The pattern features six hearts and strips.  It's really great for showing off large scale fabric but is equally good for blenders and basics.  Like I mentioned, there are six hearts so it would be perfect in rainbow colors too!!

To make my quilt, I used Once Upon a Time by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda Fabrics.


(Here I didn't bind this yet 😉 )
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!

Making the 'On the Bright Side' quilt and Slow Your Roll Sew Along

Image
'On the Bright Side' quilt is a gorgeous and stunning quilt caught my eye when it was in the February 2018 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.  Have you seen it?  Here is what it looks like-



At the time, I just saved the pattern and hoped I'd get back to it one day.  A few weeks ago, @allpeoplequilt announced they were running a sew along for this pattern!  I ordered fabric and couldn't wait for it to come.  Once it arrived I started cutting and was excited to start.



As I was cutting though, I realized I'd never be able to make this quilt during the time of the sew along.  I knew I'd never keep up with he week's tasks and also work on the other projects I'm making.  But, I still really want to make it.



Enter the Slow Your Roll Sew Along by Pen and Paper Patterns.  Lindsey is hosting a sew along starting on October 20, 2019 that will run for 7 months...a really slow, no pressure, sew along.  You can make the pattern she will be releasing for it (W…

Free Pattern: White Pumpkins Quilt

Image
Last year I released my White Pumpkins quilt pattern and now I'm re-releasing it for FREE!  I love white pumpkins.  Each fall I use white pumpkins to make pumpkin pie and I just adore them.  I usually grow them in my garden but on years when they don't cooperate, I just buy some white pumpkins at a local farm.  We roasted them and make pie.  My favorite variety is Flat White Boer Ford pumpkins.  And, although not white, I love Long Island Cheese pumpkins too.  The original recipe came from my husband's grandmother and I have modified it to be what it is now...which is the most delicious pumpkin pie ever :)  That was my inspiration for this quilt.  


This quilt has been a favorite to use last fall and this fall so far.  To make the top, I used Moda Fabrics Cross Weave (the gray color) and Robert Kaufman Essex Linen (in White).  For the backing, I used Robert Kaufman Mammoth Flannel, which is the coziest flannel!!




I also make one block from the pattern and turn it into a pil…
