Free web patterns

I thought I would just do a quick update of some of my free web patterns as free Christmas/Holiday gifts to all of my wonderful blog followers (but feel free to share with friends). There is nothing better than free gifts!
Just click on the quilt name and it will take you to the free pattern. They are all pdf downloads.

There is
which uses 10" squares (also called Layer Cakes or Treats)
by Timeless Treasures. It is made with their wonderful
Tonga batiks. It is a fast easy quilt that you can use my Cutting Corners template set to make it even easier.




Next is
AraBella
A beautiful black/white/tan collection with Benartex. The fabric
was designed by Michele D'Amore, who does wonderful
fabric designs for quilts and home decor. It is another easy fast
quilt made with different size Snowball blocks. A perfect quilt for
using my Cutting Corners templates again.
(Do you think I'm
pushing my templates???)



 I love working with Hoffman oriental prints so
was designed with this wonderful Hanami collection.
Another fast quilt that can use my Cutting Corners
templates for making those triangle corners fast and easy.
(I keep finding lots of ways to use those dang templates!)





I also have some new designs coming out in some of the magazines.
Civil War Ladies sampler is just hitting the newstands. It is featured in Fons & Porters Love of Quilting and will be in three issues. A great "Block of the Month" quilt for groups that like to do that.

I will be carrying the kits for the quilt.
 
Stay tuned for more new publications, quilt kits, and free web patterns coming out in 2011.
 
 
 
I am having a huge blowout sale on my website, Gateway Quilts & Stuff. I'm trying to clear out some of my inventory to make room for new (and make taking inventory easier for tax time!) I will have quilt kits available for the AraBella and Pointing the Way quilts after the first of the year when the fabrics come in. I am also donating 10% of all of my December sales to the Semper Fi Fund. An organization that helps Marine families (my husband is a Marine). Semper Fi Fund  My way of thanking the troops.
 
As always, do what you love and love what you do.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. Toby
