I started making quilts about 6 years ago. At first I saved scraps in a small container, then I purchased a larger container, Now I have a very large container for my scraps for my someday scrap quilt. This book would be wonderful.
Each of our winners has been contacted, and as soon as we hear back, we will send out their wonderful books! If you didn't win, but would like a copy of this book, click here: SUNDAY MORNING QUILTS
It’s become somewhat of a joke around here at the office. When we
are talking about projects for upcoming fabric lines, inevitably I will
pipe up with "I’ve got an IDP (Independent Designer Pattern) for that!"
But as with most jokes, there is always a thread of truth. You can
find an independent designer's pattern for just about everything, and
there are more and more patterns being added all the time so I suggest
you check back often if you don't see one you need.
Day just around the corner, I thought I would show you some of the IDPs
that you could get done in a weekend! The nice thing about
downloadable patterns is that the wait is minimal - only about an hour
or less for most downloads to show up in your email - so make sure your
email is correct. Mom’s always appreciate a homemade gift made with
love, so let me help get your wheels turning. There are patterns for
sewing moms, on-the-go moms, baking moms, techno moms and every other
type of moms. Here are just a few examples.
For the moms who sew, you might want to make her an adorable Flower Pin Cushion by Sew Simple.
Hi again! It's me Kiki and I blog over at It's Sew Kiki. I recently made the quilt below using Connecting Threads' fabric collection, Mastermind.
I've called this quilt "Whiz Kid" and I designed and made it for my husband. I've made quilts for so many people, but my poor husband didn't have one of his own!
When I received the Mastermind Collection, I knew it would be perfect for Joe's quilt. The colors are so bright and vibrant. I decided to pair it with a solid orange. Joe races motocross and his KTM bike is orange so this was just the right color choice. The orange solids make the prints from Mastermind just pop!
This quilt came together really fast with its simple Half Square Triangle zig zag pattern. The pattern is available as a free download through Connecting Threads. Just go here to get your copy. While you're there, take a look at all my other free downloadable patterns! And don't forget to browse all of Connecting Threads beautiful fabric.
I made this quilt just in time! Joe was racing recently and fractured his foot. He's been home healing and cuddling under his quilt all week. Is there anything better than seeing a quilt get used to comfort someone?
I'm definitely one of those quilters who wants to see my quilts getting used and loved. Wrap yourself up in it....wrinkle it up!
I also want to share with you a feature that I have on my blog. It's called Quilt Blocks 101. There you'll find tutorials for different quilt blocks using Connecting Threads fabric. Come visit and check it out!
