Quilt Lab: A free little pattern!

If you've read Quilt Lab you may have noticed that most of the graphics in the Design Process chapter are for a quilt NOT in the book.

Maybe you didn't notice. Doesn't matter! I had always inteded to write up this pattern as a freebie companion pattern. And since it is all done with angles (mostly HSTs) I thought that would be a good time to unveil it!

I actually made a few tweaks after the book went to press - it's an evolving process, like I say in the book. ;) Nudgeing a line over a teeny bit made construction so. much. easier.

A few more pictures...

I didn't want to put any fabric away so I used ALL the scraps on the back!

You can kind of see the quilting. There is a grid in the background and the angles are echoed.
You want a pattern? Of course you do. I had so much fun putting the graphics together for this. I was hoping to fit it all on 1 page (!!) but that didn't happen. One day I'll learn to be concise. ;)


  1. ooooh, great work, but what does it mean, Ali? Does it graph the levels of joy you experienced while writing the book. Or the sound waves your sewing machine makes? I really wish that peach line represented my stock portfolio...
    Thanks for the download!

  2. Thank you for the great pattern and for describing how you got there!


Thanks for dropping by. Is something on your mind?
