The Patchsmith will be joining the Glorious Autumn Block Party (hosted again by Quilting Gallery). My block will appear on 4th October 2012 so be sure to visit here on that day because there will be a free PDF block pattern and another
give-away which will be open to everybody.
This week has been a busy week in the Patchsmith calendar. The first Patchsmith Patterns have gone on sale at Craftsy – three of them to be precise.
First up is the Bee Hive Wall Quilt – a cheerful little quilt measuring approx 21” square. It is the Patchsmith’s signature quilt but I couldn’t keep it to myself – it is made for sharing. Quick piecing and easy to follow diagrams make this decorative item a buzz to put together.
Then there is the Tea and Cake mug rug pattern. Great for beginners and experienced quilters alike this sweet mug rug will brighten any table or desk. Add some speciality tea bags and a small pack of biscuits and you have the perfect gift.
And finally, the Scottie Dog mug rug pattern is a must for dog lovers everywhere. Two felted canine friends sitting on a patchwork background – this is a great pattern to give to a guy or gal.
All Patchwork patterns come in PDF format so they can be viewed on your laptop, Ipad or hand-held device. Full size applique sheets and colour diagrams mean they are easy to follow and, if you have any queries just click on ‘The Patchsmith’ at the bottom of any blog post and send me an email. But best of all – Patchwork patterns are just $1.99 each (approx £1.40) – so why not give them all a try.However, for one week only you can win one of these three patterns in the ‘Back to School Blog Hop Party’ being hosted by Quilting Gallery. Pop over to the party and check out the wonderful blogs. But before you go why not leave a comment telling me which of the three patterns you would like to win and why. The patterns will be sent (via email) to the three lucky winners at the end of the Blog Hop Party on 4th September 2012 so make sure you have email access. (PDF format ensures this competition is open to everybody, no matter where you are in the world.)
