Templates

This page contains a variety of free quilt patterns and templates. The templates come in two forms: a webpage and a printable Adobe Acrobat .pdf file. You can print straight from the webpage but the .pdf file is designed specifically for printing (it gives great control and better printing results). These quilt designs are for non-profit use.

Below you will see a "Donate" button. I have added this in an attempt to keep this site going. The popularity of this site has increased my webhosting cost considerably and unless I can recoup some of the costs, I will be forced to delete this site. It has also affected adding new patterns and other resources. So if you get some benefit from this site, please consider making a donation, even $1 will help.

This quilt is part of my current interest in yellow. I also have a growing collection of 1930's reproduction prints that this quilt would be perfect for.

Template 9 - Dad's Amish Inspired

I made this quilt for my Dad. I think the black and grey works well with the brighter "star" blocks. Quite a good "man" quilt. The quilting design in the plain grey blocks could reflect an interest or hobby?

Template 10 - Karen's Wedding Quilt

I made this quilt for an old school friend for her wedding. However, I didn't applique it. Instead I used the applique patterns as quilt templates. Each block was quilted using stem stitch and embroidery thread (2 strands) instead of quilting thread. The colours of the applique pieces indicate which colour was used. See Renees Baby Quilt for example of this style.
