Welcome to Free Pattern Friday. Today I’m showcasing a free pattern which caught my attention and I wanted to share:
My Blue Heaven, by Bonnie K. Hunter (Quiltville) finishes at 81″ x 89″ and is perfect for a scrapbuster quilt.
Click here to view the free tutorial, as well as downloadable PDF instructions for this quilt.
Bonnie also travels to teach a workshop for this quilt (as well as many other quilts). Oh, what fun it would be to have Bonnie come to your local quit guild, or quilt shop to teach such a class. Consider letting them know you are interested in them hosting such a event. Here is a description for this workshop:
This is a two block quilt! A modified puss in the corner block, and an hour glass star block, both in 8″ finished size. You can make this quilt as big or small as you would like depending on the number of blocks you make. This quilt uses 45 star blocks and 45 puss blocks. The 90 blocks are set 9 across by 10 down. Of course you can make the quilt smaller depending on the number of blocks you make
This quilt is perfect to learn how to use the specialty rulers I love and use so much in my scrap quilting! This is an exceptionally good class for beginning quilters, as we cover basic units like half square triangles, flying geese and hour-glass.
