Free? Who doesn't like free?

One of my favourite quilt pattern designers is Australian Toni of The Red Boot Quilt Company. She is clearing out some of her older patterns and offering them free as pdf downloads. Pop on over and check them out. Just scroll down and you'll find several free patterns.

I own quite a few of her patterns and just purchased her latest, which happens to be my favourite bird, flamingos. I have two stuffed flamingos, Big Pinky and Little Pinky and they are played with by my two little granddaughters. Pink just happens to be Severn's all-time favourite colour too, so I guess I'll be making it before long. By the way, it's available for a short period of time for an introductory price.



Her latest freebies are a teddy bear pattern called Little Bears and another great quilt for little girls called Flower Fairies. Both Severn and Mackenzie pointed out the fairy that they would like.


This is the end pieces of the green fabrics that I strip pieced.

They were cut into 6.5 inch squares. Ironed and then...

sewn again but this time they are 12.5 inch squares.
Many more are sewn together and I still need to add some applique. It's a slow process.

Stay tuned...

East Lake Simcoe Quilt Show - Part two

Carrying on...

























This was a beautiful whole cloth quilt in pale blue.







I made a quilt like this in the same colour family. It's an Atkinson design called 'Fire Escape.'























Just a little close-up.

This is part of the top of the quilt. 















This was such a nice, bright, fun quilt.

Frogs.

A whole lot of frogs.



There were several older quilts.

This one caught my eye.

It was quite well done.

A pleasure to view.

This one was a surprise. It sparkled because it was hand quilted with metallic thread.







And I will end with this other Kim Diehl quilt.


I hope you liked the show. I went to another one this past weekend and once I get the photos ready, I'll post them.
