I’ve been doing a lot of machine quilting lately, finishing up a few quilts in time to enter them into some shows. That got me thinking about all of the wonderful quilting tutorials, blocks of the month and free pattern ideas there are out there.
I can only begin to post a few, but here are some of my favorites I ran across this week.
Elizabeth is also offering a wonderful (FREE!!) Craftsy class called Creative Quilt Backs. I love “back art” so this is definitely the class for me! I just ordered it (FOR FREE!!) and can’t wait to have some time to watch….
Angela Walters has a wonderful new book out and she has loads of FMQ inspiration and tips on her blog.
All of Jeni’s blocks feature half-square triangles (one of my favorites!) in a striking combo of Citron and Aqua.
She just posted the final block in December and you can visit her blog for the entire group. She included some setting instructions, too, along with her finished quilt. It’s gorgeous!
In fact, Andover has have a super funky free quilt pattern to go along with Pearl Bracelets, aptly titled, “Pearls.” Lizzy designed it herself and it features large applique circles in a rainbow of colors.
If applique is not your style, how about this awesome free pattern from Lee at Freshly Pieced?
It’s called Kissing Fish and is available as a free pattern download. Nice share, Lee!
Wow, there’s so much to check out that I could spend all of my free time blog-surfing rather than quilting. What a tough balance!
