I know it’s hard to believe. Two new patterns in the same week. I told you I’ve been working hard!
Here’s my next new pattern . . .
There’s nothing new about the Greek Cross quilt block. It’s a traditional block that’s been around forever. But since I teach a lot of classes to quilters of all skill levels, I decided to use this block to teach lessons on making half-square triangles, which is one of the units that is used in the creation of this block.
Therefore, this pattern contains lessons inside. Three different lessons on easy methods for making half-square triangles. I like it when patterns are extra useful that way, don’t you? You can try all three methods and then pick your favorite to construct your quilt. They’re even techniques that you can apply to other quilts you might make later on.
The pattern also comes with four size options, so you can easily choose your favorite size to make.
I made my sample quilt to look fairly traditional, and I can’t seem to stop myself from using lots of red — but I also wanted to see it in other colors, so I have another version of it made up in bright colors. You can see it HERE.
Did you notice that there are no animals in the picture of this quilt? Amazing! I’m not sure how I managed that, other than I shot in the yard and not the pasture this time, and during all my running in and out, Oscar snuck in the house, so he wasn’t available to help. My Cowboy found him asleep in the spare bedroom hours later, acting like an indoor cat!
Both patterns (printed and PDF versions) are listed in my Etsy Shop now. Check back soon for more news!
