Hedgehog Quilts QUilting Patterns

Exclusive Designs


I’ve been invited to create patterns for a new catalog, “Craft of Quilting” through Keepsake. It’s been very exciting and I want to share these designs with you. It has given me a chance to expand my design work to encompass the growing trend toward more contemporary quilting. You can keep up with all my latest offerings at Craft of Quilting by following the link: http://www.craftofquilting.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=terry+Albers.
Hedgehog Quilts


Hedgehog QuiltsNeck Nap Roll (9” x 20”)
Lie back, relax and enjoy some quiet time with this lovely neck roll/ bolster pillow made with Amy Butler’s Dreamweaver fabrics. The pattern contains the paper-piecing template for the flying geese blocks and clear instructions for my favorite method of paper-piecing. Our step -by-step illustrations will help you create the perfect bolster pillow for a bed or chair. The body of the pillow is layered and quilted, using muslin and batting. A simple hook & loop closure keeps the pillow tight but allows easy removal for laundering. HhQ7411



Hedgehog QuiltsSun & Shade Lap Quilt (58” x 72”)
We used Amy Butler’s Eternal Sunshine fabric line to create this bright vertical row quilt. The pattern is great for a strong beginner but watch out for the bias edges! The use of spray sizing or starch before cutting will make the bias more manageable. The pattern contains clear graphics and a practice exercise to create the perfect, scant 1/4” seam. HhQ7430




Hedgehog QuiltsBoho Bed Runner
Bring some Bohemian style into your room with this bright and funky reversible runner using Anna Maria Horner’s Mod Corsage fabrics. You will use a combination of machine and hand quilting to create my modified “Kantha-stitched” technique. Kantha originated in India and used saari fabrics for the outer layers with worn saari fabrics as the padding. All layers were then stitched together with long rows of hand stitching. They were used as blankets or sleeping mats. My modified method uses rows of machine quilting to help stablilize the layers. Between the machine quilting rows, hand stitching is done with Perle Cotton for its sheen and ease in creating long rows of big stitches, approximately 1/4” long. The edges of the Floral fabric are folded and brought around to the front and hand stitched in the same manner, creating a self-bound edge. HhQ7431



Hedgehog QuiltsBackstage Quilt (48” x 60”)
“Fibs and Fables” is the title of this wonderful fabric line by Anna Maria Horner for Free Spirit Fabrics. It brings back memories of my days in our Community Theater, complete with the cobwebs in the corner of the high ceilings. It was also the inspiration for the Spider Web blocks in this lap quilt.




Hedgehog QuiltsBackstage Block Pillow (20” x 20”)
We took the Spider Web block from our “Backstage Quilt” and created a coordinating pillow. The paper-piecing template is included so you won’t need a special ruler for this project.




Hedgehog QuiltsBackstage Strip Pillow (16” x 16”)
We continued the strip-pieced look of our “Backstage Quilt” and created this simple coordinating pillow.




Hedgehog QuiltsMorning Mist Twin Quilt (79” x 100”)
We loved the large oriental print at the centerpiece of this line by Nell Whatmore for Free Spirit Fabrics. So we featured it in 15” blocks! We balanced the on-point design with her wonderful trees and used the green lattice print to pull everything together. We added borders, repeating the same three fabrics and then inserted a bright pink binding flange to add that vital pop of color. The flange goes on after quilting and right before the binding to add the final bit of texture. 




Hedgehog QuiltsMorning Mist Round One Pillow (16” x 16”)
Make this cheerful pillow to match your Morning Mist Quilt or just as a pop of color in your room. Nell Whatmore’s Oriental fabrics play well with the bright white accents.




Hedgehog QuiltsMorning Mist Around Again Pillow (20” x 20”)
We created this pillow as a companion to the Morning Mist quilt and Round One Pillow or as a stand-alone pillow, perfect for a bed or chair.




Hedgehog QuiltsRain Chain Quilt (59” x 74”)
This vertical row quilt is a great way to showcase the prints in Jennifer Paganelli’s “Nostalgia” line for Free Spirit Fabrics. We featured the Cameo Floral in the pieced blocks, centered the design of the Medallion Floral for the middle row and flanked the columns with the Large Floral. The fussy-cut diamond points add a flash of color at the edges of the quilt.
We chose the fuchsia and cornmeal colors to accent the florals in the blocks. A simple quarter turn of every other block makes the columns seem to spiral down the quilt like a sparkling garden rain chain.





Hedgehog QuiltsRain Chain Pillow (16” x 16”)
We chose the soft blue & white medallion print to accent one of our favorite florals from Jennifer Paganelli’s “Nostalgia” line for Free Spirit Fabrics for this lovely pillow, perfect for a bed or chair.
Our step -by-step instructions will help you create this simple pillow, using a larger version of the block we used in the Rain Chain Quilt.



Hedgehog QuiltsDesert Diamond Pillow (20” x 20”)
We love the wonderful “Feather” fabric line by Zandra Rhodes for Free Spirit Fabrics. It inspired us to use diamonds  with lots of open space for quilting. Quilt this pillow top by machine or by hand, using a big-stitch technique with perle cotton.



Hedgehog QuiltsOhh My! Lap Quilt (52” x 60”)
“Ohh, My” was my first reaction when I saw the “Memories of Mondrian” quilt in the Thangles™ booth at Quilt Market. The creators of Thangles™, MB and Patrick Hayes graciously allowed me to re-create my own version of that quilt using these beautiful fabrics by Dena Designs for Free Spirit. We upped the graphic impact by the use of two colors with white and made the blocks much larger than the original quilt. This allows lots of open space for contemporary quilting. 
We use the same T-Log construction; it speeds up construction, manages the bias edges and just works great!






Hedgehog QuiltsChevron Rows Pillow (20” x 20”)
Use triangles to assemble this bright pillow, accented with the coordinating prints from Dena Designs “Butterfly Garden” for Free Spirit Fabrics.



Hedgehog QuiltsButterfly Patch Pillow (16” x 16”)
We added a narrow ruffle to frame this wildflower patch pillow, using Butterfly Garden fabrics by Dena Designs for Free Spirit Fabrics.



Hedgehog QuiltsButterfly Patch Ottoman (18” x 24” x 16”)
Make this fun, soft ottoman to accent any room! We quilted all the parts (Butterfly Garden fabrics by Dena Designs for Free Spirit) and then assembled the ottoman, binding the top and bottom in the fun stripe on the bias. We added velcro to one long and one short side of the bottom, making it easy to add the filling. You can store blankets, sheets and even extra pillows inside this roomy rectangle. We chose to fill ours with upholstery foam for a more constructed look.






Hedgehog QuiltsChevron Chenille Rug
(20” x 29”)
Create another layer of texture for your room with this cushy chenille rug. You’ll use the quilting techniques you already know and love. . . no tricky sewing  secrets involved. We layered our fabric (matching the stripes) and stitched the lines for the chenille. Then we cut and sewed the three segments to create the chevron effect. We layered the rug with batting, quilted through all the layers for extra cushioning and added the final border and backing. Finally, we tossed the rug into the washer and dryer to fluff up the chenille.







Hedgehog QuiltsSeaside Inn Quilt (52” x 62”)
Relax with the colors of sea and sand when you make this lovely quilt featuring Atrium fabrics by Joel Dewberry for Westminster Fabrics. The blocks are a modified log cabin with beautiful florals featured in the center.





Hedgehog QuiltsSeaside Inn Runner (18” x 54”)
Bring the colors of sea and sand into your room when you make this lovely runner featuring Atrium fabrics by Joel Dewberry for Westminster Fabrics. The 12” (finished) blocks are a modified log cabin with beautiful light and dark florals in the center.





Seaside Inn Small Toss Pillow (16” x 16”)
Add the vibrant colors of sea and sand to your room when you make this small toss pillow featuring Atrium fabrics by Joel Dewberry for Westminster Fabrics. The block is a modified log cabin with a beautiful floral featured in the center.





Seaside Inn Pillow on Point (20” x 20”)
Up your decorating game when you turn a great block on point to make a larger statement with this 20” pillow featuring Atrium fabrics by Joel Dewberry for Westminster Fabrics. The block is a modified log cabin with a beautiful floral featured in the center. The white corners make the colors pop. The matching outer border and binding make a great frame for the pillow top.






Mountain Retreat Quilt (72” x 92”)
We created this striking quilt design specifically to feature this wonderful new fabric line from Snow Leopard for Free Spirit Fabrics. Based around the large prints called “Temple Brocade”, “Sabu” and “Cloud Scrolls”, it’s easy to see where we got the inspiration for the name of the quilt. We added the accents to balance the design. Multiple borders echo the main prints in the quilt. The open areas of the setting triangles and alternate blocks allow special quilting to shine.






Mountain Retreat Pieced Block Pillow (16” x 16”)
We emphasized the wonderful woodear print from this line by creating a large, graphic T-block for this pillow. The narrow border and matching binding frame the block perfectly.






Mountain Retreat Diagonal Pillow (20” x 20”)
We used just four fabrics to make this large, soft pillow to complement any room.  We kept it simple to let the fabric create the mood. The front and back of the pillow are sewn right sides together and then turned, eliminating the need for binding.






Packed Flower Patch Pillow (16” x 16”)

Dress up your room with the bright colors we have come to expect from Kaffe Fasset for Westminster/Rowan fabrics. We started with his fabulous chrysanthemums, added pansies to the corners and framed it with a bright border.






Cross Patch Pillow (20” x 20”)

Combine some of the bright colors we have come to expect from Kaffe Fasset for Westminster/Rowan fabrics for the top of this 20” pillow. We featured his new bright mod paisley, and added pansies, a plaid, and a stripe to the mix. The pale blue calms everything down a bit but then we bound it with the Red/Purple print for a strong finish.







Trimmed Chenille Rug (22” x 40”)
Pamper your feet with this cushy chenille rug, designed to complement your room’s decor. You will use the quilting techniques you already know and love...no tricky sewing  secrets involved. I do recommend paper-piecing for the flying geese. It’s speedy and the paper supports the bias edges. If you prefer the traditional method, transfer the markings from the paper-piecing sheet onto your rectangles and sew the blocks in the traditional manner. Our step -by-step instructions will show you how to create the chenille and accent strip. Then you will layer it with batting and backing and quilt it for a thick, soft finish. Once the binding is added, you toss the rug into the washer and dryer to fluff up the chenille. Rated as beginner friendly, the pattern contains easy-to-read graphics.



Hedgehog Quilts Exclusive DesignsSpinning Tops Quilt (56” x 70”) Update!

Our stitch and flip method of foundation piecing makes short work of assembling the kaleidoscope blocks and controlling the bias edges.  The blocks are squared out, eliminating the need for any set-in seams.
Why Paper-Piece these blocks? One of the trickiest parts of any kaleidoscope block is sewing the bias-edged pieces together accurately. My first test block for this pattern took me almost an hour of fussing and my points still didn’t line up. My first foundation test block took no more than 10 minutes and all the points were perfect.  If you are “kaleidoscopically” challenged like me, you’ll want to give this method a try.




Color Mosaic Pillow (20” x 20”)

You can get a great combination when you change out the position of color and background in identical blocks, creating a positive/negative effect.
Turn any quilt block into a pillow with these step -by-step instructions. We used April Cornell’s wonderful Music line for Westminster Fabric to create this 20” pillow, perfect for a bed or chair. The front of the pillow is layered and quilted, using muslin and batting. The back is made up of two overlapping (unquilted) pieces so that the cover can be removed for laundering.
