Free Quilt Patterns: Striking Gold!

I’m about to hyperventilate here. The blog at Sew, Mama, Sew today asks the question: What is the best sewing tutorial you’ve seen this year? Scroll down to the comments for a treasure trove of links to great patterns, instructions and ideas. It could take me all day just to get through them. Please go have a look–you’ll be inspired! Here are a couple of my favorites so far:

mod sampler from Oh, Fransson!

hanging fabric baskets from U Create

gathered clutch from Noodlehead

About Diane Harris

I'm an editor for Quiltmaker magazine in Golden, Colorado, USA. For six years, I wrote pattern instructions, product reviews and how-to articles. Then I spent four years as QM's Interactive Editor, working to generate much of our online content. Now I'm back to patterns and how-tos, which is a great fit for me. I still love writing about quilt-related topics for Quilty Pleasures, and I always have my finger on the pulse of the quilting world. I teach a variety of quilt classes and give guild programs, too.

    Looking for a star quilt pattern seen on TV a few years back. Background was a deep blue and the stars were all yellow. The stars were about 10 or 12 in

    Wow thanks for the heads up. I have Sew,Mama,Sew on my side bar, but don’t always take the time to read it every day. I will be looking today :-)

  6. I love the Mod Sampler. I’ve been wondering what to do with some of the cool Jelly Rolls I’ve collected. This could be it!
