Michele Bilyeu of With Heart and Hands has put together a staggering list of free patterns and tutorials. You will find the listing here. If you need to make a few gifts check out this list but make yourself a cup of something first because it is a very long and interesting list! Michele looks tuckered out from all her hard work!
One of my readers has asked me to consider a quilt along (QAL) for the new year. She suggested a small piece that would finish roughly 40" square. I think she has a space on her wall about that size! I've got some ideas that combine little touches of many different techniques that I've blogged about this year but nothing that is overly complicated! And it would be scrappy so you wouldn't have to invest in yardage.
There would be a little bit of English paper piecing!
I would add some little embroidered details but nothing complicated and they would be optional!
How about a little bit of applique (but nothing fussy)?
And of course there would be patchwork!
So what I would like to know from you is would you be interested in participating? It would be free of course. How often would you like me to post the pattern installments, biweekly or monthly? Would you prefer to see the finished quilt beforehand or would you be happy to just watch the quilt evolve with each installment? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think so I can get started planning and working!
Right, time for me to pull out a sketch pad and get designing! Until I post again, happy sewing!
