Pattern Ideas

Looking for Something New?

We have sections online showing Patterns by Project Type: for instance, Flying Geese patterns, Dresden patterns, Irish Chain patterns and so forth. In this newsletter, we'll focus on flying geese!

Here's one of our favorite flying geese patterns from Deb Tucker's Studio 180. This pattern can be made in a variety of sizes ~ from miniature to king size!

Love Links ~ Flying Geese!
The placement of dark blues vs light blues and teals gives the impression of two layers!
This version done in browns and tans uses a random placement approach.

Here's Another Studio 180 Beauty!

The Summer Blossoms pattern features flying geese combined with other block elements to create a fascinating quilt!

Bench Pillow Kit of the Month!

Riley Blake asked 12 of their designers to each create a bench pillow for this new program, which starts in January, 2023 with the April kit (this gives you plenty of time to make it). Shown below is the November kit, which will ship in August, 2023.

Two Options!

1) Top Only
2) Top + Backing
Both options include a special Keepsake box!

Twelve Bench Pillows!

In this 12-month program you will make 12 beautiful bench pillows and each will be shipped in a Keepsake box around the 10th of each month.
