Free Quilt Pattern - WAY easier than it looks



I recently came across a new-to-me source for free quilt patterns. This one is going on my must-make list. How cute would this be in a lake house or beach-front home.....OR a home for dreamers far away from either one. Click here to get the pattern - thanks to Quilters Select for this one.

Quilting is finished!

Just finished the quilting of this queen-size quilt. Now to trim and bind.

This is the disappearing hourglass squares- used fat quarters and a 12 1/2 square ruler to make the blocks.........the borders are leftovers cut and pieced
 I have never been disappointed with the thread tension on my APQS Millenium....not sure how well you can see it, but the stitches are perfectly balanced.



The thread is Glide in both the upper and bobbin. And the pantograph is Dogwood from Urban Elementz.

Little bit of quilting my APQS Millenium





What are you working on? I have been working on this quilt - hope to finish soon. I have been pretty sick for a couple of months now, so my stamina hasn't been so good.....hope to pick up the pace soon, because it is time to start preparing for Christmas!














Here is a full shot of the top, just after I finished piecing it.




The pattern is a disappearing hourglass, I just used the scraps to make the borders. 








The pantograph quilting pattern is Dogwood on the Urban Elementz site.




Pieced on my Baby Lock.














The quilting is being done on my APQS Millenium.

American Beauty - Free Quilt Pattern

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FREE QUILT PATTERN




I really like this quilt pattern. I probably would do something a little different to the outside border, but the stars are quite eye-catching. A simple snowball square and four half-square triangle blocks are all that are needed to make the central part of this quilt. Thanks again Red Rooster Fabrics for another free quilt pattern.

Sometimes it is the color, the print, or the value changes that draw your eye to a quilting project. In this case, it was the layout that caught my attention. Thank you to studioE for this free table runner pattern. The pattern also includes a table topper and placemat pattern as well.
