Today I would like to share with you two lovely free downloadable quilt patterns...
Towne Square and Apple Jacks
Finished size 77" x 77"
Finished size 58" x 64"
Both of these quilts would look lovely made up in either my "Stonehouse Garden" or "My Hearts at Home" fabric collections.
I am by nature a virtual gardener, preferring to stitch my garden with fabric and thread rather than working in the soil. For Stonehouse Garden I wanted to evoke in the mind of the quiltmaker a sense peace and harmony, the imagined aromas and sounds of a country garden.
The colours and patterns that I have gathered for this collection are firmly rooted in the ground, the flora that grows from it and the things that make our gardens have personalities of their own. Each print has been carefully designed so that when combined they remind us of gentle days in the garden with the sun on our backs, the laughter of children playing, bees buzzing and sense of joyfulness.
My Heart's at Home
This collection uses sweet soft shades that I have named dust storm pink, celadon green, dark vanilla and iceberg blue.
A tree strong and true, a symbol of something grounded in the earth that will stand the test of time. Scattered around the trees are images of a home, a beloved dog and cat all of which are sprinkled with hexagons, look closely and you will see that even the background spot is not really a spot it's a hexagon!
I have named this collection ‘My Hearts at Home’ which for many of us is a true statement, no matter where I am in the world my heart’s at home with my family.
