You can download our free patterns from here. They are an eclectic mix of little quilts, pincushions and Christmas decorations. Many of them started life as projects for Young Quilters rather a lot of years ago so are really quick and easy to make.
Don’t forget that on our Tutorials page you will find links to a great many free block patterns.
These two little baby quilts / play mats are quickly made from left over 2 1/2 inch strips.
There are two as they were made for twins, but the pattern is for just one!
This pincushion is ideal to go with the Baby Bucket bag pattern you can find in our Payhip shop. You can have just one handle or split it two and stitch a loop on two sides of your little basket.
A basket wall-hanging or cushion. The basket is actually a pocket so makes an ideal ‘book’ cushion for the reader in the family. Or fill your basket with whatever takes your fancy. Easy to make and ideal for a holiday project with younger stitchers.
Another quick make as a cushion or wall-hanging – either for you to make or to help a young stitcher. And why just make a rabbit – with a bit of imagination and different ears you can make all sorts of animals this way! Download the free pattern here.
Another one for avid readers, especially those on the move. This book carrier is great for keeping your book safe and your place marked without having to wrestle it in and out of a bag every time you change trains. Two fat quarters are more than enough to make it. Download the free pattern here.
Our ever popular Christmas Bells pattern is here! Its the only pattern left in our Craftsy/Bluprint shop after their cull! Quick and easy – a great decoration for the Christmas tree or as a garland. Download the free pattern here.
While we’re looking at things made from circles here’s three patterns in one. Use Suffolk Puffs (Yo Yos) to make a Christmas tree, wreaths or a garland. Again these are great for young stitchers to have a go at. Download the free pattern here.
More Suffolk Puffs – this time made with felt, so even easier for young stitchers to make. We’ve got patterns for a spider, a pumpkin and a Christmas Pudding. But what can you (or your child come up with)? Download the spider here; the pumpkin here; and the pudding here.
Yet more patterns to follow as we find them . . .!
In the meantime we ran a series of Mystery Monday quilts over on the Chris and Barbara blog a few years ago and here on Meadowside we have had several stitch-along quilts and Mystery quilt patterns – why not search the tags and categories for them.
