If you like to donate for “Quilts of Valor”, this is a great pattern for you. This patriotic quilt, measuring 39″x 52″, incorporates lots of different quilting methods: piecing, paper piecing (my favorite!!), and applique. It is also a “scrap loving” quilt, since so often the fabrics are donations.The bold chevron pattern is so rich, from using different values of reds, creams, and whites. This is why scraps work so well.
Here is a smaller version of this quilt done as a 21″ x 21″wall hanging. And wouldn’t it make a sweet pillow, too?
I love how the stripes appear to be “waving”. It’s a super easy technique.
The Homeward Bound Quilt/Wall Hanging pattern is available on Etsy or Craftsy.
The 2 Breezy Butterfly blocks pictured above can be found on my Craftsy and Etsy shops for FREE. These paper pieced patterns can be used for summer potholders, pillows, a table runner or even a butterfly quilt.
I am offering these free patterns as a thank you to my loyal customers…and if you haven’t been a customer in the past, I would value your patronage in the future. I would also love you to SUBSCRIBE if you have not previously done so.
