In the spring, I began teaching classes with these patchwork pillow patterns to help beginning quilters learn some of the tips and tricks I wish I knew when I first started quilting. The patterns have been very fun - they are small manageable projects (which is easy on your time and budget). They allow beginners to focus on learning a specific skill in a mini quilt turned pillow.
I am now teaching the second round of the series at Dabble & Stitch in Columbus, OH and I've finally listed the patterns for sale in the shop. They are beginner friendly - the instructions are more detailed than you would normally find in quilt patterns to help explain terminology and tips.
There are 3 different 16" x 16" pillows. They are available in PDF form individually - or - buy all 3 patterns together and save some $. I made all 3 of my pillows to coordinate - but you don't have to follow suit.
The first pattern is is the Plus Pillow shown above (teaches nesting seams - getting your intersecting seams to line up).
The second pattern is the Chevron Pillow shown below (teaches half-square triangles).
And the third pattern is the Flying Geese Pattern below (teaches Flying Geese).
Regular price for all 3 patterns is $12.
Each Pillow Pattern individually is $5.
Coupon: To introduce these patterns to you, they are all ON SALE until the end of the month (9/01/14). Use the coupon code PILLOWS to get $1 off each pattern.
These patterns would be a great way to introduce quilting to a friend...Pin It
