Flower Market {Free Quilt Pattern}

flower market quilt

I love floral prints – the bigger the better!  Chelsea Market by Blend Fabrics has all the perfect floral prints in one fabric line!!  I created this quilt to show off the beautiful flowers – sometimes you just don’t want to cut your fabric up into small bits.  This quilt pattern would work well for any of your favorite large prints!DSC_0963

The block size is 14″ and the overall quilt measures 56″ x 70″.

It’s the perfect size for a throw or for the end of a bed.  You can download the PDF by clicking here.  I hope you love it!!DSC_0960

The Good in the Good Life Quilt Pattern

In our family we have a little saying….well actually it’s song lyrics….. “You put the GOOD in the GOOD LIFE.”  I knew I had to use the Good Life fabric from Moda and I knew the quilt had to have words.  So meet my newest quilt pattern!the good life quilt 2

This whimsical quilt measures 37″ square and is perfect to hang on a wall, place on a table, or give as a gift to someone who puts “good” in your life :). The border is made entirely from charm squares, which is super fun because I collect charm packs!  It’s available in my Etsy shop as a PDF download for only $5.00!!the good life quilt pattern 2

The letters are machine appliquéd.  Yes, you have to cut them all by hand, but it’s kind of fun!  I put on a movie, sat down with my scissors, and it went by fast!the good life quilt pattern 4

I thought I would be a nerd and pose with my quilt while my 9 year old took my picture….hahah!the good life quilt pattern 7

The blocks are super fun to make and I love that you can use all the fabrics in a charm pack.the good life quilt pattern 5

I had a leftover kitty pumpkin quilt block from my “I Love Cats Quilt” so I came up with this fun little wallhanging!  It measures 20″ square so you could turn it into a pillow if you wanted to.

I love hanging little quilts all over my house – they make everything so cozy!  Below are the instructions to make the mini quilt.  The center block measures 10 1/2″ unfinished.

I Love Cats {Quilt Pattern}

I am so totally super excited to be sharing this pattern today!  Meet “I Love Cats” – the quilt pattern!  This quilt has been a labor of love and has been a long time in the making!  I was first inspired by this amazing bundle of Cotton + Steel woven gingham fat quarters.  I knew I wanted something to totally show my love for gingham.  Then my love for cats creeped in and I knew this was the perfect quilt!IMG_1923

Then I started decorating for fall and I knew this quilt would look amazing in a Halloween version!

Each black cat is from a different fabric – no two are the same!  I think I will name each one 🙂
