After a few years of writing patterns for a local quilt shop, and after a few requests, I am finally getting my act together and polishing and publishing some of them. These are the latest two. Both patterns come as instantly downloadable PDF files, 4 pages long with color photos. They will continue to be available in my Pattern Shop.
This pattern is charm pack and scrap friendly. I’ve also done all the math and written it so that there is minimal amounts of wasted fabric (because I hate fabric waste!) Fabric Requirements: 35 print 5” squares (1 Charm Pack or a total of ¾ yards of fabric), 2 yards total of various 2 ¼” and 3″ strips,Sashing: 1 ¾ yard solid white fabric, Outside print border: 1 yard, Binding fabric: ½ yard (or 5/8 yard if you prefer bias binding), Back: 3 ½ yards.
This quilt pattern is Layer Cake Friendly and a lot faster and easier than it looks. The fabric requirements are: 48 – 10” squares (1 layer cake + two 1/3 yard cuts of fabric OR twelve 1/3 yard cuts) Inside border – ¼ yard fabric, Outside border – 1 1/3 yard, Binding – ½ yard Backing – 3 ¾ yards
Kits for this Hour Glass quilt (pattern is included) are still available at American Quilting in Orem, Utah. You can order one by calling 801-802-7841. There are three options for border fabrics (subject to availability):
