You just never know

What is the old saying? A day late and a dollar short?? That's the way I feel sometimes when I come upon something that probably is known by all.

Like, did you know the Fat Quarter Shop has free quilt patterns??

Whoa! Me, that's who didn't know. I was visiting a very lovely blog, Stitching by Starlight, where I was taken back by a lovely quilt Angie was making for her friend. Which one do you ask? Go HERE and take a look. Go ahead, I'll wait.

tap, tap, tap.....


dum, dee, dum.............


Okay, are you back?? Did you see Jane's Black and White Quilt?? Isn't it amazing?? So I sez to myself, I wonder what pattern this is? I clicked and read the story behind this quilt. And you know what? It's a FREE pattern! Not only is it a FREE pattern, it is a Rachel Griffith pattern called Full Swing! And YES it is available for FREE at the Fat Quarter Shop website (along with numerous other FREE patterns).

So you know what I did next, right? After downloading the pattern, I gather up all these lovely little Black and White fabrics that I have been SAVING for just the right pattern.

aHA! This is IT Peeps!!!

Happy Quilting :-)

Oh yes, the internet has a so many free patterns tucked here and there isn't it wonderful? Don't forget to look at all the fabric designer sites as well. Something I noticed recently was the fabric designer patterns for sale at online quilt shops...if you go to the fabric source (Moda for example) you can find it FREE.

Yep, I knew that...it embarrassing how many free quilt patterns I've downloaded and not made, lol. I hadn't been there in awhile and hadn't seen that quilt, I love it! I think it looks great in black and white. Enjoy!
