The only thing better than new patterns is new FREE patterns! yay!
I have added some new links in my library of free patterns.
First up- the Splendor quilts for Amy Butler! Splendor was an amazing collection to work with. With her signature style and use of color, Splendor definitely inspired more than just two quilts, but these two were the favorites right from the start!
Zen Garden is an orange peel style quilt with some gentle curves that make it an intermediate level project that confident beginners could take on to learn a new skill. The main print can be fussy cut as shown in the picture, or you can just cut willy-nilly and see what happens =)

Also with Splendor is the full size Clematis Quilt. You all saw the mini that I made for Quilt Market, but the pattern is for the full size. I might have forgotten to take detailed pictures of the quilting for this one in my baby-brain addled state, but I assure you its fantastic. The center star is feathered like the mini, with an added border of zigzags and a row of pebbles. The border is done in swirls and a piano key border.

You can see some detailed shots of both quilts, as well as the other lovely projects made with Splendor, on Amy Butlers Instagram account @amybulterdesign. I am currently working on her next collection, and I can guarantee you are going to LOVE them! I know I do!
Next up are the Cool Cats projects for P&B Textiles. I love the funky colorful cats, and the second main print is a black and white outline print intended for coloring with fabric markers. How great is that? I came up with a fun, easy quilt and an artist apron. I ended up using my tester apron during my pottery stint a few months back (that I totally forgot to blog about, but you can find my pots on my IG account @staceyinstitches. Pottery is fun!) The quilt has a pair of set in 3D strips in the border for a unique look.
Clowder – a group of cats is called a clowder, did you know?
The apron has adjustable straps to be a one -size fits most.
Next is a soft and sweet flannel collection called Beaux Bebe. I designed a simple rag quilt that is beginner friendly, and a set of bonus burp cloths. This one will make the perfect baby shower gift set!

Lastly there is this fun project for Dear Stella- Meadow Quilt featuring Pine Grove, a collection of super cute woodland creatures. The owl print is my favorite!
