Making Quilting Patterns: Make the Size you Like

quilting patterns make your own quilt fan flower gardenQuilting and sewing both take a pattern, and even if you do not want to deal with the complexity of making a garment pattern, a quilting pattern is much easier to design your own. Of course a square is easy enough, like for this Trip Around the World quilt shown, but there are other quilt patterns or templates you can make, too.

Grandmother's Flower Garden is an old quilt pattern made with hexagon shapes, but if you purchase a pattern, you will only get one size.  We have instructions in an older blog about how to make a flower garden quilt block in any size you choose.

Have fun with a new year quilting project, and make your own pattern.

Until next time!
