Free Patterns - Hang Time and Peaks and Valleys

So a little while back I was asked by the wonderful folks at Camelot Fabrics if I would be interested in creating a few designs for them to highlight on their blog and Crafts Page.  Like most of us pattern and tutorial writers, I have so many designs floating around in my head or in sketch pads but  I just don't have time to make them all.  So this was a win win.  I got to make the designs and have them written into free patterns for all of you . . . and I can make the quilts another day ;)

When I was trying to decide which of Camelot Fabrics lines I wanted to play with I was instantly drawn to their wonderful new solid colors.  I know, I have been on a solids kick lately ;)  And I had a design that has been waiting in my sketch book for a while now that was just perfect for these solids.  Put the 2 together and you have Hang Time!!  Isn't it so fun :)

Hang Time finishes at 75" x 75" and you can find the Free Downloadable Pattern Here ;)

And the folks at Camelot Fabrics did it up in The Design Studio Collection as well.  Doesn't it look fun changed up with a black background.   You can find this Free Downloadable Pattern Here ;)  

And I whipped up one more design for Camelot Fabrics.  I loved Jackie's Opposites Attract line.  I mean, who doesn't love a good black and white line ;)  I wanted to make something super classy with it so I designed this Peaks and Valley's Table Runner.   I always love the contrast of Black and White and the zig-zag design is just so fun!! 

Peaks and Valley's finishes at 14" x 50" and you can find the Free Downloadable Pattern Here :)

I hope you like these designs and if you make them up I would love to see them.  You can add them to my Flickr group here or email me a pic at  ;)

And be sure to pop on over to Camelot Fabrics where you can find several pages of Free Projects!!!

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!

Works In Progress

So last month it was all about Secret Projects so I couldn't show a lot of my works in progress.  But this month, no deadlines, no secrets, which means I have time to get back to some Works In Progress.  Yippee!!!  There are some oldies and some new ones.  Always fun to keep it mixed up ;)

First, I figured it best to get my Beejeebers Bee Block done nice and early.  Cheryl actually asked for the same set of blocks we did last month Charming Stars block and a nine patch, so they went really fast.

Cheryl asked us to use fabrics based on 3 Sisters Wintergreen line and wouldn't you know . . . I just had a sweet lady in the neighborhood give me some old fabric she didn't want anymore and guess what was in it.   Some  3 Sisters and Fig Tree Co. Christmas lines from years back.   Perfect!!!

 So with those done, I figured it was time to get back to my Beejeebers blocks from August that have been waiting on 2 more blocks to make the quilt top.   I finished the last 2 blocks up yesterday!!!  These are made using my Super Scrappy Triple Irish Chain Block tutorial.

I was so excited to lay this out and start sewing the quilt top together when Wha Wha Wha.  Somehow, I forgot how to count to 16 and found that I still needed 1 block.  I didn't have it in me to cut out another 100+ squares so I set these aside for the moment.  (But not for to long, hopefully, I really want to finish this by the end of the month ;)

So instead of cutting tiny squares, I moved onto cutting all different sized squares and triangles.  Yup, the Modern Building Blocks "Back To Nature" Edition has officially begun!!!  I got all of 5 blocks cut out.  They take a bit of time to cut out because there is so many different sizes and you can't really do it assembly line.  Just 1 block at a time ;)  I really want to start sewing these up but I promised myself I would cut everything out first, so then the sewing will be uninterrupted and so much more fun ;)    And besides, my machine wen't in for it's annual cleaning today so I have a few days to spend just cutting ;)  

And hopefully, my machine will come back at about the same time the last block from my Bees Knees Outdoors quilt comes in.  It is in the mail on it's way here :)  I can't wait to put this one together, it is going to be so awesome and I think my Grandparents are really going to love it ;)

And that's what I am currently working on :)   What about you, how many projects are you juggling??

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
