Yep, we’re pretty bad about keeping this blog up to date. But as Quilt Market in Houston Texas rolls around yet again so does another free pattern! Two of our new quilts are focused on the ocean: Pirate Posse and Mermaid Marina. We decided that it would be fun to give away a free pattern to go along with these two new quilts:
You can find the patterns for Mermaid Marina & Pirate Posse both in downloadable and printed versions, as well as kits in our shop.
These quilts use our “sew and flip” and “quilt as you go” methods; which makes these quilts go together surprising quickly. You build one block at a time and quilt it before placing the appliques. Then, you sew your applique onto one small block instead of trying to fit your whole quilt in your machine. So. Much. Easier. And, when you are done with your quilt top, you are all done quilting (if you want to be). Then you just need to add a backing and binding using whatever method you are most comfortable with and your quilt is all ready for snuggling. (We do have a free pattern with our binding method as well.)
We also introduced a another new stuffed animal that corrdinates with these adorable sea worthy quilts. Introducing Lenny the Lobster!
