Free Quilt Pattern - Glitz Garden

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FREE QUILT PATTERN



Oddly shaped quilts always intrigue me - especially when they are more "traditional" in the main design. The pattern is a combination of applique and traditional piecing. No templates though - just regular rotary cutting in the traditional piecing. Thank you, Michael Miller, for the free quilt pattern.

Free Quilt Pattern - Star Frost

Click here for the free quilt pattern.




This pattern is not for the faint of heart. It is a traditionally pieced quilt - and contains a lot of y-seams. It also uses templates, rather than strip cutting instructions. It is beautiful though and might be worth the challenge. Thank you, Michael Miller, for the free quilt pattern.

This pattern is an applique pattern, but the pieces are large and not complicated....The Dresden plate "dahlias" are pieced first, then appliqued.The back of it is even adorable! Thank you, Michael Miller, for the free quilt pattern.

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.
