A recent cleanup of my sewing room bookcase unearthed lists of online sources for free quilt patterns. I had forgotten about them because of all the junk piled on top of them. I checked out some fabric company websites and found a few patterns that appealed to me. A big disclaimer here – fabric companies give away patterns that use lots of their fabrics (imagine that) and the patterns can be a bit tricky to adapt to other fabric you may want to use.
Free Spirit offers many patterns, including a few that break free of the usual quilt themes of flowers and cute. Fabric designers include Tula Pink, Denyse Schmidt, and Anna Maria Horner. Try Curious Nature or Chocolate Lollipop. Oh my, I’m back to circles. I’ll warn you that the free projects page on this website takes forever to load.
My last featured website, Michael Miller, offers more than the usual number of patterns that appeal to me. Building Blocks (the middle quilt below) looks fun for fussy cut fabric; and This Way and That Way, Neon Gray, and Park Slope Triangles all look doable with fabrics in my stash. They are all available as PDF downloads.
