Hedgehog Quilts QUilting Patterns

What's New! * Table Runners & More * Baby! * Quilts * Bags & Gadgets * Sweatshirts


What's New!



Hedgehog QuiltsNEW! Forest Edge (62” x 66”)
This contemporary design begins with the 8-block “Thicket” panel from Moda Fabrics. The pieced blocks are made one at a time. Each block is sewn and then trimmed to size, varying the placement of the center tumbler. The frames are added and the blocks are trimmed again, varying the width of the frames. Although flanges are typically left loose, I chose to topstitch the flange folds to the block and again at the binding, using a variegated thread. I still get the pop of color I want without the challenge of keeping the flange flat when I quilt. The pattern includes a practice exercise to improve your 1/4” seams for accurate sewing and tips to measure for well-behaved borders. HhQ 7432




Hedgehog QuiltsNEW! The Cowboy Way (84” x 84”)
This is the quilt you want to make for that special person in your life who loves the old West. Exclusively Quilters combined soft blues, tans and brown to bring this collection to life. This design makes the most of any fabric line with a panel, repeating stripe and a large scenic print. Fussy-cutting the repeating stripe creates the illusion of multiple borders. We used left-over fabric after the quilt top was finished to piece a strip 13” x 93” to insert into the backing. It’s a great look that saves fabric! The pattern contains clear graphics, tips for Well-behaved borders and a 1/4” seam practice. HhQ7434




Hedgehog QuiltsNEW! I Love Wisconsin!, a 2017 Shop Hop Quilt pattern (60” x 68”)
For residents and visitors, Wisconsin has great things to offer, including this wonderful 2017 Shop Hop fabric by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabric. Show your Wisconsin pride with this quilt featuring wonderful scenes of the great outdoors. This pattern is rated for a strong beginner with basic machine applique skills. It includes clear instructions, great graphics and a few tricks and tips to help practice your scant 1/4” seams and measure properly to achieve well-behaved borders. HhQ7436







Table Runners & More



Hedgehog QuiltsImperial Runner (21" x 47")
We made this elegant runner with the lovely Oriental fabrics from the "Mari" line by Yuko Hasegawa for RJR. We used the same dramatic piece for the borders and backing of the runner, making it easily reversible. The Dresden Plate blocks appear to be hand appliquéd, giving the runner more dimension. The combination of the paper-piecing for support and the template cut blades keeps the assembly of the blocks consistent in size. Rated as intermediate, this project includes directions for machine mock-hand appliqué, a 1/4 inch seam practice and tips to achieve well-behaved borders. HhQ 7382





Hedgehog QuiltsWelcome Home Runner (20" x 41")
Make the hexagons for this lovely runner using English Paper Piecing (EPP). The hexagons are arranged on the center background and stitched in place. The floral bouquets and words are appliquéd by machine before the runner is assembled. The pattern includes directions for a consistent, scant 1/4" seam practice, my favorite techniques for machine appliqué and my recommendation for a great EPP tutorial. HhQ7401





Garden Brick Path Runner (20" x 38")
Brighten up your table with this runner, starring Lynette Anderson's "Hearts and Flowers" fabric line. Flying geese elements give the impression of brickwork walkways in peaceful tones of red and gray. The flowers in the center are done with simple machine appliqué. HhQ7384



Colors of Autumn Runner  (17" x 37") NEW Update!
Bring the bright colors of autumn inside to dress your table for the season. The main print is accented with colorful flying geese on a rich creamy background. The narrow black borders outline the flying geese border, setting it out from the main print. I love paper-piecing for the speed and accuracy it provides. The foundation pattern is inside, ready to copy but I’ve included the templates for those who prefer the more traditional method.   HhQ7385




Harvest Tabletop Runner (14" x 30½")
You can use this pattern to turn any lovely seasonal fabric into a striking table accent. The simple block border complements the colors of the main fabric and the narrow flat piping (sometimes called a flange) is the perfect frame for the center. Use a different coordinating print for the backing and you'll have a reversible runner. HhQ7370





Star Matrix Runner (23" x 54")
By special request, I downsized the star block (now 9" finished) from my Double Matrix quilt to create this sparkling runner. Just like the quilt, all the blocks are assembled from squares...no special rulers needed. This pattern is rated as intermediate, only because the cutting and assembly charts can look confusing to a beginner. HhQ7376





Tossed Leaves Runner (14” x 36”)   
From traditional to contemporary, choose fabrics to suit your style and taste. The blocks are simple, template-free piecing. The half-square triangles and the stem blocks are made larger and then trimmed to size for a perfect fit. The runner is pieced, layered and quilted as a rectangle. The corners are trimmed away as a last step before binding. HhQ7345





Holiday Dressing Tree Skirt (In two sizes, 42” and 54”)   NEW Update!
Whatever your style, from elegant to traditional, make this skirt the perfect accessory for your tree. With clear instructions and great graphics to guide you every step of the way, this deceptively simple tree skirt is easy enough to make for a quick gift. HhQ-7348





Garden Therapy Flags (12” x 18”)   
Greet guests to your home or garden with these cheerful flags. This easy project combines piecing, simple fusible applique and free-motion or straight-line quilting in small doses. Choose fun novelty prints and proclaim your love of gardening indoors or out. The full alphabet is included and reversed for tracing, so you can personalize the messages to suit your fancy. The quick turn-and-topstitch finishing method gives the look of custom binding in a fraction of the time.  HhQ7346





Charm Spools Runner (18”x 30”)  Update!
Start with a Charm Square Pack (5” squares), add 1/4 yard of coordinating background fabric, choose 1 yard for the backing and binding and you’ve got the main ingredients for this quicker-than-you-think runner. But please note: Charm Squares are not required! Instructions include cutting specifically for charm squares and a cutting chart for scraps. HhQ7340






Baby



“Oh Boy!” Toddler Quilt (46” x 58”)  Update!
This fun quilt will be perfect for your little guy’s first big boy bed! It’s just the right size for a toddler bed; bigger than a crib quilt but still small enough for a little one to handle. It’s never too soon to start teaching them to make the bed. Choose his favorite theme (I used “Oh Boy, Dinos” from Free Spirit), frame the focus fabric and then march the flying geese around all the blocks. The flying geese are paper-pieced and assembled in pairs for speed and accuracy. HhQ7334




Learning Letters  (48" x 54")
You can personalize this quilt for a special child to begin the fun of learning letters! Full of bright colors, this quilt will be a winner for any age, from newborn to toddler. I used the alphabet panel from Moda’s ABC Menagerie for the border blocks and strip pieced the center using a jelly roll. We added the prairie points and names after quilting. I loved using JP’s 1½” Mini-Point Ruler for the prairie points on this quilt. Directions for the reversible prairie points and simple machine appliqué are included in the pattern. The alphabet is also provided and already reversed for tracing.   HhQ7388





“Quilted Brag Book” Kit (for 4” x 6” photos)
You’ve got bragging rights . . . quilts, kids, grandkids or pets. Carry this great quilted accessory and show off those pictures! This pattern kit contains the vinyl for the pocket and a mini photo album that holds 4” x 6” pictures. Choose a fat quarter for the wrap and another for the binding. This is also a great charm square project. Only 6 charms needed to piece the outside cover. Pattern includes a formula to calculate a cover for any size album. HhQ7338





Princess Toddler Quilt (46” x 58”)  Update!
Thrill your little princess with a special quilt for her first big-girl bed. It’s just the right size for a toddler bed; larger than a crib quilt but still small enough for a little one to handle. Make matching pillow cases and she’ll love her fancy bed! Choose her favorite theme (I used the “Princesses” line from Elizabeth Studios), frame the focus fabric with a narrow flat piping and the pieced blocks dance all around. Fussy cut motifs for the centers and then paper piece the square-in-a-square blocks for speed and accuracy. HhQ 7336





Hedgehog QuiltsOne of a Kind Kid Sweatshirt
This is a great project for charm squares! Choose fabrics in your child’s favorite colors, pick an oversized sweatshirt in a companion color and you’ll be ready to go. Work around a small panel square, if you like, and unify the project by choosing a single fabric for the sleeves and hood. Keep the layout simple to avoid overwhelming that little body. Best of all…no need to remove or mess with that intimidating zipper! Once you’ve made one or two of these, you won’t be able to stop! Won’t they make a great gift, too? #HhQ7329





Hedgehog Quilts Julia’s Bugs(42” x 52” Wall, Crib or Play Quilt)
Add close-up photos in the next row underneath. (Attachment #3) Text: Inspired by my some of my granddaughter’s favorite things, I set out to create this quilt to make her giggle. It will keep your baby fascinated through all the phases from newborn to nursery school. It has lots of colors, shapes, textures and faces; it will provide hours of fun from counting legs to reciting nursery rhymes…and all in a snuggly package. The pattern includes helpful tips for fusible appliqué and fun quilting ideas. #HhQ7328

Rag Tag Baby
Babies love texture…especially silky tags. Use washable textured fabrics, lots of different silky ribbons and this project will soon turn your little one into a “Rag Tag Baby”! Choose the smaller “Draggin’ Rag Tag” (16" x 19") for daytime fun or the larger “Rag Tag Blankie” (30" x 36") for bedtime. These are baby tested and so simple to make, you’ll want to keep a few on hand as shower gifts. #HhQ7321





Click for larger image. Grandma's Emergency Kit   Update!
Get Grandma and Grandpa ready for the new arrival! This crib-size quilt fits into the matching diaper bag. Then fill all the pockets with the things Grandma will need: diapers, wipes, pacifier, rattles, storybooks and more. This is the set that stays at Grandma's house. Quilt 40" x 52". Bag: 14" x 19" x 6". Changing Pad 14" x 28" #HhQ7312





Quilts


Hedgehog Quilts Hedgehog Quilts Tuxedo (60” x 78”)
Choose an accent color for the tiny cornerstones and narrow flange to bring these wonderful black and white prints to life. We made our model with taupe accents for an elegant look but bright fabrics like fuchsia or taxi yellow will make the accents pop. The unique construction of the large second border cornerstones make the black and white blocks appear to float and yet, continue the chain effect of the tiny cornerstones. The pattern contains clear graphics, a scant 1/4 inch seam allowance practice and tips to get well-behaved borders every time. It is a great project for practicing the design technique of sashing and cornerstones! HhQ7393




Hedgehog Quilts Horse Sense  (52” x 62”)
Feature these beautifully rendered portraits from Exclusively Quilters in this large lap quilt for your favorite horse lover. The panels are framed and assembled into three sections, making construction easy enough for a strong beginner. The pattern includes a practice guide for an accurate, scant 1/4 seam allowance and tips to achieve well-behaved borders every time! HhQ7380




Pedigree Puppies (49” x 49”)
Make this simple puppy quilt for the dog lover in your life! Exclusively Quilters’ artists have made these little faces so realistic that you’ll want to reach out and pet them! The puppy portrait blocks are framed in black, then combined with the packed puppy squares and sashed with dog bones. Choose the blue plaid or brown plaid for the outer mitered border to suit your taste. We used gray for the cornerstone accents with the blue plaid and gold for the cornerstone accents with the brown plaid. The pattern contains great graphics to help you along the way, including a scant 1/4" seam allowance practice, tips for well-behaved borders and a guide to mitering the outer border. It’s an ideal project for skills from strong beginner to master quilter. HhQ7354




Hedgehog Quilts Patterns for Quilts Farm Friends (49” x 61”)   Update!
The Apple Hill Farm fabrics by Kids Quilts for RJR were the inspiration for this bright, happy quilt. We fussy-cut different scenes from the farm print for the center squares of the log cabin-style blocks. Use the cutting chart and layout guide in the pattern to replicate the cover quilt or choose your own color combinations.
Any child-friendly fabics will work with this pattern. Twenty blocks in a 4 x5 layout will replace the panel squares. Then just add one border and you’re done! The pattern includes a scant 1/4” seam practice, making this a great beginner-friendly project. HhQ7392




Hedgehog Quilts Patterns for Quilts Jungle Bright (52" x 68")
Make this easy-peasy play quilt to keep your little one fascinated, no matter what the age. The bright colors and fun animals are by Susan Marsh for RJR Fabrics. We fussy-cut the animal squares and the first border for simple sewing with impressive results. Any bright fabric line will work well with this design, especially if lots of geometric shapes are included. We added folded corners to the alternate blocks for additional dimension and texture for those little fingers. HhQ7386




Hedgehog Quilts Patterns for Quilts Winter Visitors (51" x 65")
The peaceful and elegant Winter Garden design by Susan Winget was the inspiration for this large lap or wall quilt. You’ll be able to display this quilt throughout the winter, long after the holidays are over. Paper-piecing helps control the bias edges of the diamond border. Rated as intermediate because of the need to match multiple points, careful sewing will make this a great project for a strong beginner with basic paper-piecing skills. HhQ7381




70 x 82 with 2nd border62 x 74 with single border Round Churn Dash
(70” x 82” with 2nd border/picture on the left
OR 62” x 74” with single border/picture on the right)
This scrappy quilt gives the look of curves without curved piecing by combining two traditional block designs into one. We started with the Churn Dash block layout and combined it with a Cathedral Window technique of turned back bias in the corners. Stop after the first border for a more contemporary look or add the second border, finished with the curved look of the blocks in the cornerstones. The pattern contains fat quarter cutting diagrams and detailed graphics to make the steps easy to follow. It is suitable for a strong beginner with patience and attention to detail. Yardage and cutting for cover model are available on my website. Click Here. HhQ7387




Hedgehog Quilts Patterns for Quilts Gather With Friends (50" x 61")
Celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving with this holiday quilt featuring the whimsical artwork of Sandy Gervais for Moda Fabrics. The pattern includes clear directions and lots of graphics to help ensure a successful project, including 1/4” seam allowance practice, measuring for well-behaved borders and a few tips for successful machine appliqué. It is easy enough for a strong beginner with basic machine applique skills.  Note: Cutting includes exact fabrics shown in cover sample. HhQ7390




Hedgehog Quilts Patterns for Quilts Hexagon Kaleidoscope from Stripes (40” x 40” cover model)
Choose a pre-printed novelty or wildlife stripe for this technique and watch the magic happen! You will get a variety of blocks and they all work together because you used one piece of fabric. This pattern includes directions to cut and assemble the small hexagon blocks, as well as directions to complete the cover quilt. Check out the Medium and Large template pages for cutting sizes to make the medium and large blocks. Check out my website gallery pages to see other layout ideas.  (coming soon) 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 a try. HhQ7349





Crystal Blue (45" square)
Color placement is everything in this quilt and "Sing the Blues" fabrics, from Exclusively Quilters, give it that special glow. The center is made entirely of 4" (finished size) squares and half-square triangles. We used Thangles™ triangle papers to make the sewing quick and accurate. The directions in the package are terrific . . . no wasted fabric and no wasted time squaring up! If you use a different technique to create your half-square triangles, be sure to cut your pieces according to your chosen method. The pattern includes a 1/4" seam allowance practice and tips for working with cornerstone borders for a perfect fit. With patience and attention to detail, most strong beginners will enjoy this project. HhQ7360




Hedgehog Quilts Patterns for Quilts Gingerbread Lane (49" x 59")
This great lap-size quilt will be perfect for the holidays in colors of gingerbread, rosy red & green from Lynette Anderson's Winter Village line for RJR. The square-in-a-square cornerstone blocks create the center of the stars and the sashing blocks create the star points. The blended border is also created from square-in-a-square blocks and is easy to do with careful color placement. I recommend paper piecing the blocks for speed and accuracy and my cutting directions are listed for this technique. Rated as Intermediate, this design requires accurate scant 1/4” seams to match all the points. Pattern includes hints for managing bias edges, a 1/4" seam allowance practice exercise and tips for Well-behaved Borders. HhQ7350




Wolf Territory (56" x 63")
This versatile quilt will bring the wilderness into your room with Exclusively Quilters’ stunning Wolf Song panel and companion prints. Use it as a lap throw or wall hanging for maximum dramatic effect. It is easy to assemble into sections, framing all the blocks in the black paw print fabric. The combination of borders gives a three dimensional effect of looking into the forest through the black frame. I set out the binding fabric requirement separately so that you can choose to use green, brown or black, as you prefer. We used the all-over wolf print from this line as the backing, making the quilt beautiful on both sides. This pattern, with clear cutting instructions, a 1/4" seam allowance practice and hints to assure Well-behaved borders, would be an ideal project for a strong beginner. HhQ7356



Garden Brickwork Quilt (80" x 86")
Geared toward the confident, intermediate quilter, this design features a center medallion made with flying geese elements that come together to create a secondary pinwheel effect. The center is beautifully framed by a series of plain and pieced borders and finished with floral appliqué accents. HhQ7383



Paintbox Flowers  (51" x 66")
This quilt pops with bright details, white accents and the wavy stripes used as the sashing. They all work together to bring out the colors in the beautiful watercolor blooms and the bias-cut stripe binding brings the whole design together. As a quick project for the more experienced quilter, you can make this cheerful quilt for a gift for or just for yourself. As a skill-builder for a strong beginner, the pattern includes my 1/4” seam allowance practice and my guide to Well-behaved Borders.   HhQ7379



Rockin' Round the Blocks  (74" x 86")
Try this fun way to use a big print! We picked Ro Gregg's "Rock around the Clock" fabric from Paintbrush Studios as our alternate blocks, then pulled out her Global Brights fabric, used in the print, for the chain blocks. The black chain gives your eye a place to rest. We used the same big print on the back and bound it in black for a bright (and reversible) dorm or large snuggle quilt.  HhQ7365




Town Park (68½ x 68½")
Look closely and you'll see my favorite hedehogs in the flying geese blocks, as if they've made a hedgie path around my little park. I've laid out my "park" in sections to make it easier to keep the directional fabrics right side up. The soft and soothing colors from Moda (Bluebird Park) are anything but boring with the pop of yellow and dark teal.  HhQ7367




Lion Wild (60" x 74")  Update!
This large throw quilt features the king of beasts with his royal family from Exclusively Quilters by Classic Cottons. The blocks are large (19" finished) and the flying geese border is the perfect accent in the colors of the savannah. HhQ7368




Kitten Play (35" x 47½")
You don't have to be a cat lover to find these kittens irresistible. You'll find that this quikc quilt is easy enough to make one for yourself and one for a gift. Not for kittens only, use this pattern for any pre-printed panel with block designs which fit into a 9¾" square. Just choose companion fabrics or solids for the borders and cornerstones. HhQ7369




Double Matrix Quilt (49½" x 73½")
Star blocks surround three "Road to Oklahoma" blocks is this scrappy black and white quilt with a pop of yellow. It takes some organization to get the controlled scrappy look and we've created the cutting charts and block assembly to make it easier. All the blocks are assembled from squares...no special rulers needed. This pattern is rated as intermediate, only because the cutting and assembly charts can look confusing to a beginner. HhQ7371




Giggle & Sing Quilt (46" x 57")
Wish, dream, smile, grow, laugh, love. Aren't these great words to put on a little one's quilt? We used the adorable panel from Andover's "Giggle & Grow" line and added a few creative borders to make this quick little quilt. HhQ7372




Gypsy Mixed Flowers Quilt (64½" x 74")
This very easy appliqué quilt mimics curved piecing without the fuss. Exclusively Quilters "Gypsy" fabric line was used to create a fresh clean look. This is an update of my "Flowers for Cynthia" pattern, with more blocks, different borders and lots more tips and tricks. Great for classes or retreats, this pattern is rated for a strong beginner. HhQ7373




Truckin' Quilt (50½" x 61½") Update!
Get truckin' with these vintage pick-ups from Exclusively Quilters by Classic Cottons. We used a variation of the classic Attic Window block with a contemporary feel. No special ruler, Y-seams or paper piecing required! From toddler bed to man cave...your guy is going to love this quilt! HhQ7374




Go West! (60½" x 74½")
The "Wild, Wild West" fabric line from Exclusively Quilters was the inspiration for this simple quilt. We fussy-cut the blocks to highlight different areas of the print. Whether you need a quilt for a man-cave, sofa or bed topper; any large scale or scenic print can be the inspiration for your own creation. Fussy cutting directions included. HhQ7375




Uptown Dreams Lap Quilt (54” x 74”)  
Although designed with contemporary fabrics in mind, this pattern works well with traditional, reproduction and even novelty fabrics! We used the main (or focus) fabric in the center of blocks and as the outer border. The companion fabrics work well together, bringing out the colors in the large print. This pattern is suitable for a strong beginner and great for classes. HhQ7357




St. Croix Tiles (74” x 88½”)  
This pattern makes the most of a large scale print and its companion pieces. The large print anchors the quilt as the outside border and is repeated in the center blocks. The small print serves as the alternate blocks, softening the boldness of the large print. The sashing, bright little cornerstones and stripe border combine to keep the look interesting but not too busy. I like to use flat piping, also called a flange, to add a little pop of accent color. The piping (or flange) is stitched to the first border with the folds facing the center. The raw edges of the piping, or flange, are sandwiched between the first and second borders. You can leave the flange free or topstitch next to the fold to keep it flat. It adds a more textural element to the quilt than just using a simple 1/2” border. The stripe is repeated in the cornerstones and the binding repeats the accent color of the flat piping, pulling all the parts (and companion prints) together. HhQ7355





Square Wheels Quilt (66½” x 78½”)   
Planned or scrappy, this fun pattern lets you create a look all your own. This versatile design looks great in contemporary, novelty, and traditional fabrics. Since the center blocks are cut at 10” (you’ll need 20), this pattern is layer cake friendly, too. The center patches are fused into place and then appliquéd to anchor them to the quilt blocks before constructing the top. This means no wrestling the whole quilt top through your machine. It is surprisingly quick to assemble, making it a great gift quilt. The pattern was written to accommodate directional fabrics, so no matter what you choose, you’ll have plenty of yardage. HhQ7358




Solar Flare Quilt (81” x 90”)  Skill Level - Intermediate  
The construction of this beautiful, glowing quilt will require more patience and organization than skill. The pattern is broken down into 3 main sections: 9-patch center, pieced circle blocks for the 3rd border and finishing. The arcs in this design are paper-pieced. The circle block patterns are provided but you will need to be familiar with the paper piecing process. HhQ7359




Chained Quilt (66” x 76”)  
This variation of a simple, traditional Irish Chain setting takes a little twist when we use the busy main print as the background, and chain through it in white. The larger bright red center squares help anchor the design and give your eye a place to rest. The white cornerstones and blue binding frame the design. The result is eye-catching yet orderly. It’s a great size for a large sofa throw or a bed topper to add a pop of color to your room. Think outside your usual box to see what other combinations you might find. HhQ7361




Folkheart Princess (40” x 60”)  
Go bold, contemporary or traditional! Here is a pattern where you can show off any fabric line. Choose your favorite piece for the large blocks and outer borders. Then pick companion prints for the center of the framed squares and square-in-square blocks. You can tie the whole group together with blenders for the block frames, square-in-square block corners and stopping borders. This will give your eye a place to rest but still make the fabrics pop. From novelty prints like fruits and veggies, to florals to Superheros or northwoods themes, you can make this quilt into a great gift. HhQ7363




Chen Diamonds (74” x 90”)  
Large diamonds seem the perfect shape to show off these lovely fabrics from RJR. The soft colors and patterns were drawn from the Chenonceau Chateau in the Loire Valley area of France. The large patches suit the use of flannel, avoiding bulk and maximizing the snuggle factor. HhQ7364




Get Your Kicks (72½” x 86½”)  
The “Route 66” fabric line from Exclusively Quilters was the inspiration for this simple quilt with lots of border action. The pattern includes my “Well-behaved Borders” and “Accurate 1/4” Seam” sections to sharpen your skills and help make your project a success. You’ll get plenty of border practice and learn to bring a pop of color between borders with Flat Piping. The piping (or flange) is stitched to the first border with the folds facing the center. The raw edges of the piping, or flange, are sandwiched between the first and second borders. You can leave the flange free or topstitch next to the fold to keep it flat. It adds a more textural element to the quilt than just using a simple 1/2” border. This is repeated between the third and fourth borders, too, but narrower, creating the look of a 1/4” border. Whether you need a quilt for a man-cave, sofa or bed topper, any large-scale or scenic print can be the inspiration for your own creation. HhQ7366




Tumblers (56” x 69½”)
This versatile design looks great in contemporary, novelty, traditional and even reproduction fabrics. High contrast between block frames and sashing gives the quilt a more graphic or contemporary look, while the softer colors of traditional and reproduction fabrics give it a more blended look. The thimble-shaped tumblers are fused into place and then appliqued to anchor them to the quilt blocks before constructing the top. This means no wrestling the whole quilt through your machine. The basic fabric requirements are given on the pattern cover, with other options found on the cutting page including tips for choosing fabrics for a scrappy version. HhQ7342




Blessings (64” x 78”)
Make this deceptively simple lap quilt and celebrate your favorite blessings with 16" Album Star blocks.
The "Old World Christmas" line by Thimbleberries for RJR Fabrics provided the large medallions for the alternate blocks and the wonderful stripe for the top and bottom panels of the cover quilt. Lynette Jensen’s rich reds and greens are perfect for the holidays as well as for year round use.
This versatile pattern also works beautifully with fat quarters for the alternate blocks. Choose a companion print for the top and bottom panels and coordinating prints for the star blocks and borders. Embroider words of your choice by hand or machine and make this quilt a reflection of your creativity. HhQ7344




Spool Toss Quilt (69½” x 83½”)   
In my version of the traditional spool block quilt there’s no need to match any points. The rectangular blocks are sewn together and the spool caps are appliqued into place with a narrow zig-zag or blanket stitch before the top is assembled. The spools are in two different shapes (skinny & chubby) and appear to float on the background. Planned or scrappy this pattern contains both options, including tips on choosing scraps without losing the design. The black and tan variation is further inspiration. HhQ7347




“Nan’s Harvest” Lap Throw(52” x 70”)
Thimbleberries has done it again! The warm rich colors and the large scale blocks in their “Autumn Sunset” line combine beautifully in this deceptively easy-to-make lap quilt. Each block is surrounded by a narrow folded accent border, bringing the colors to life. I split one leaf block to offset the center row for an unexpected layout which is still nicely balanced. Simple sashing in a deep, earthy brown and a single border in rich, leafy green complete the Autumn Harvest look. I bound my quilt with the same deep brown of the sashing to pull it all together. HhQ7339




“Snowy Christmas Quilt(62”x 73½”) and Table Runner (22” x 53½”)
This quilt and table runner were inspired by another of my vintage quilt tops. I simplified the block (paper piecing makes them much easier to handle) and used non-traditional Christmas colors for a more contemporary look that will last past the holidays. The pieces are pre-cut to allow for chain piecing the blocks to save time. Please note: This is a paper piecing pattern. The block patterns are provided but you will need to be familiar with paper piecing techniques. HhQ7341




The Quillow (40" x 56")
This quick and easy lap quilt is a variation of an old favorite. The pocket modification makes it a breeze to fold your quilt into a soft pillow. Your quilt top can be plain or fancy. Piece any lap size quilt top (40" x 60") or let your fabric be your design. The color and design possibilities are almost endless. This quilt has been extensively tested by family and friends. Great for travel or home use...we even have seasonal favorites to rotate throughout the year. These quilts make fantastic and practical gifts. But beware: once you give one for a gift... everyone on your list is going to want one, too! #HhQ7302




Quillow, Too(53” x 66”)
This larger version of my original “Quillow” is a still a quick and easy variation of an old favorite. We added identical borders to the front and back to make it larger for better coverage.

“Pat’s Blooms” Lap Throw(54” x 72 3/4”)
The gorgeous panel from Thimbleberries fabric line, “In Full Bloom”, provides the drama for this simple quilt. I split one bloom to offset the center row for an unexpected layout that is still nicely balanced. The soft green border frames the entire quilt. Then I added two narrow folded accent borders before the binding to emphasize the gold in each flower and repeat the deep burgundy of the sashing. HhQ 7335




"“Fireside Christmas Quilt & Tree Skirt" Update! (69” x 86” Lap Quilt and 42” Tree Skirt)
Snuggle up next to the fire with this generous sized lap quilt. Make the matching tree skirt for an elegant finishing touch. While this is not a beginner-friendly project, careful cutting and attention to detail will make this quilt and tree skirt go together beautifully. Clear instructions and great graphics will guide you every step of the way. * Instructions are available to increase the size from 42” to 54” #HhQ7330




“Links to the Past" (53½” x 62” Quilt)
Make this sweet little reproduction quilt as scrappy as Grandma did. I prefer organized scrappy and will share my formula (found on the back of the pattern). Please note: This is a paper piecing pattern. The block patterns are provided but you will need to be familiar with paper piecing technique.
 *Note to shop owners: A kit checklist is available for this pattern. #HhQ7331




“Double Helix" (54” x 67½” Quilt)
Here is a great way to showcase a stunning large print or floral fabric. Pull four accent colors for the blocks right out of the design of the fabric. A simple quarter turn of every other block makes the columns seem to spiral up to the top of the quilt. Careful placement of the colors in the border gives a shadow box effect. While this quilt is not difficult to make, you’ll need an accurate, scant 1/4” seam to keep all your points lined up. You’ll find a seam allowance practice suggestion inside the pattern. #HhQ7332




Hedgehog QuiltsFlowers for Cynthia (50” x 59” Lap Quilt)
This easy appliqué lap quilt mimics curved piecing without the fuss. Charming in its simplicity, you can put the top together in a day or two. It is so versatile; going from primitive to traditional to batik; each fabric combination will give this quilt a new personality. #HhQ7327




Mountain View QuiltMountain View QuiltMountain View Quilt Lap (59” x 66”) or Queen (94” x 105”)
 With offset triangle rows (reducing the number of matching points) this design is a great way to build skills with triangles. Ideal for confident beginners, this pattern also teaches proper measuring techniques to get well-behaved borders every time. Complete cutting instructions are included for both quilts, combining fat quarters, jelly rolls and yardage. #HhQ7325




Terry's Flower Bed QuiltTerry’s Flower Bed 97” x 113” Queen Size Quilt
When Benartex presented the Flower Show II fabrics, I knew I had found my perfect garden. No weeding, watering or maintenance; just spectacular blooms. Gather up your favorite flowers for any season and create your own perfect flower bed. Additional layouts and the fabric requirements are included for Twin, Full or King size. #HhQ7326




Road Trip Memories Quilt (56"x 80")
Quilters buy fabric wherever they go! Gather up those pieces you brought home from your trip and create a lasting memory. You will need 2 yards of a scenic piece that reminds you of your travels. There are so many landscape scenes and themes available from most of the major fabric companies that you’ll have lots to choose from!. This pattern shows you how to “fussy cut” squares from your focus fabric or you can add some of your photos printed on fabric. Fabric requirements are given for each element in the quilt. #HhQ7323




Brick by Brick Lap Warmer (60” x 72”)
Here is a Fat Quarter Friendly quilt that is great for beginners and yet fun, quick and easy for the more experienced quilter. Choose the fabrics, colors and textures to suit your fancy. My choice of Woolies flannels by Maywood Studios gives me the look of wool with the convenience of cotton. Also pictured is the more contemporary looking version made from Kaffe Fasset’s shot cottons by Westminster Fabrics. This quilt makes a great gift for anyone; man, woman or child! #HhQ7324




Tuesday Garden Club Quilt(56" x 76")  Update!
Benartex created the Flower Show line and I used it to create my own year-round garden. I nestled my flowers into my "garden" by using the greenery from the same line for the setting triangles. Choose a dark and light value of the same color to make the trellis for the most realistic look. Strip piecing and the use of Thangles simplifies the construction. Watch the placement of your dark and light pieces, though...just follow the layout in the pattern for your own "Blue Ribbon" quilt. #HhQ7319




Garden Trellis Florals (Large Lap: 64" x 78"   Small Lap: 52" x 66")
If you are looking to use one of the beautiful florals on the market today, this is a great way to do it. You don't have to wait until your free motion quilting skills improve or pay a professional to do the job for you. Simple is best, so let the fabric be the focus, add 6” wide borders, get out your walking foot and off you go. This quilt would make an impressive gift! Instructions are included for 2 different size quilts; the larger lap size uses 54” wide fabric and the smaller lap size uses 44” wide fabric.
I’ve made a number of these quilts for family and friends who are going through chemo and radiation therapy. Two common miseries (being cold and feeling weak) are addressed in this quilt. When I use a single piece of fabric for the center, I eliminate the weight without sacrificing the warm, snuggly parts. I add one wide border to minimize the piecing. I always use Hobb’s Heirloom (80-20) batting to give the quilt a great drape and back it with a lightweight, silky plaid. The “trellis” quilting pattern also contributes to the “snuggle factor” by avoiding any stiffness caused by dense quilting.< It has become my own version of a “prayer shawl. #HhQ7316 




Quick Snuggle Quilt(65" x 73")
If you are looking for a manageable quilt, this is the one. Simple is best, so let the fabric be the focus and make this wonderful snuggly lap quilt with chenilled seams. Each block is quilted separately and then sewn together with the raggedy technique. No layering or basting big, hard to manage pieces and no last minute struggles to get it quilted. In just a few evenings and a weekend or two, you will have a gift quilt ready to sign and wrap!  #HhQ7314




Raggedy Trees (53" x 68")
Raggedy Trees is a pattern that combines two very popular raw-edge techniques, the bulls-eye method of concentric sizes and the raw edge seam - quilt as you go method.  #HhQ7305




Fabric Friends (49" x 69")
This project is a great way to use printed panels up to 12". The pieced block is a traditional one, sometimes called Aunt Sulkey's Choice. I used the panel blocks as alternate blocks. I chose the rest of the fabrics from the same designer line. Color choices made easy by using companion fabrics. . . "Fabric Friends"! While this design is not difficult, careful and attentive sewing will help you get the desired results. . . a beautiful quilt! #HhQ7301




Click for larger image. Fabric Friends II
Schoolgirl's Puzzle
Fabric and color selection seem to be a scary lesson for newer quilters. This quilt is the 2nd in my "Fabric Friends" series which makes fabric choices simple by selecting all the parts from one fabric line, such as Moda's "Harvest Home" or "Seaside Rose". No need to worry about picking the right tones or shades. . . they are all right there. The more experienced quilter will enjoy playing with value and scale to create different variations. #HhQ7311

Another Fat Quarter friendly project, everything about this reusable, washable shopping bag has been engineered to be lightweight and convenient. Put your wallet and phone in the inside zippered pocket, clip your keys to the swivel snap and you are ready to shop. More stylish than most utilitarian bags, the lining gives it a finished look.

Class Pressing Spot with Hot Iron Tote (6” x 9” x 12” high)

The same fabric lines the iron tote to insulate your hot iron for the trip home. There is even a pocket to keep the cord away from the hot iron. Pack up and go without waiting for your iron to cool!   #HhQ7313




Wrap It to Go
This is not your grade school book cover! If you carry it with you, you can wrap it up. Those beautiful fabrics can be a part of your everyday life. Just quilt up a cover for your dayplanner, your journal, your sketchbook, even your bible. Choose a fun fabric, add a 3 or 5 subject notebook (5 Star from Mead is my favorite) and a matching pen for a unique and affordable gift. #HhQ7307




Take it to Class Tote (17” wide x 16” high x 8” deep) Update!
Now you can carry your class supplies in one pretty bag. This tote has padded shoulder straps and wooden dowel handles to use for those heavier projects.

Sweatshirts



"Simply Yours" Sweatshirt Jacket
Each one is an original! This pattern leads you through the steps to create your personal style with your favorite fabrics. Start with a focus fabric panel such as Northern Flight by Moda or one of the wonderful whimsical groups from Loralie Designs TM (Touching the Heart with Fun Art TM) such as "Cool School". Add a few companion pieces and start playing. With your sweatshirt as a base, do some simple piecing and a little quilting; and then sew the parts back together. Finish with a tab, binding and buttons. #HhQ7320




Dutch Tulip Cardigan
Rich batik fabrics bring these flowers to life. The secret is two shades...red and orange...for depth and glow. This cozy sweatshirt cardigan is just the right weight for chilly spring evenings. You adjust the sleeve length for a perfect fit. I chose an “Authentic Pigment” sweatshirt in Mocha for the quality and great background color. Three vintage buttons complete the look. Try 2 shades of your favorite color; pink, yellow, purple or a combination of colors for a beautiful spring bouquet.  #HhQ7317




Iris Garden Cardigan Update!
Here is a cozy sweatshirt cardigan that is just the right weight for chilly spring evenings. I chose an “Authentic Pigment” sweatshirt for the quality and great colors. Three vintage buttons complete the look. Rich batiks and shaded fabrics bring these flowers to life. The secret is using two shades of your favorite iris color...one light and one dark...for depth and glow.  You’ll love this jacket for yourself or as a gift.  #HhQ7318




Snowflake Sweatshirt
Celebrate the snowy season in this cozy sweatshirt. Use chenille for the snowflake for great texture or a beautiful white on white fabric for a little more elegant look. I've used raw edge appliqué for my snowflakes; it is fun to do and makes the stitching go quickly. This sweatshirt cardigan makes a very impressive gift that won't be limited to the holidays! #HhQ7315




Pumpkin Season Cardigan
This sweatshirt cardigan is a perfect weight for chilly fall afternoons. Layer it over your favorite shirt or turtleneck sweater for indoors or out. We chose an "Authentic Pigment" sweatshirt for the quality and great colors. Three vintage buttons complete the look. #HhQ7308




Daisy Mae Sweatshirt Cardigan
This cozy sweatshirt cardigan is just the right weight for chilly spring evenings. You adjust the sleeve length for a perfect fit. We chose an "Authentic Pigment" sweatshirt for the quality and great colors. Three vintage buttons complete the look. Try yellow petals with black centers for Black Eyed Susans. Purple or pink petals with brown centers make beautiful painted daisies. Whatever the colors, you'll love this jacket for yourself or as a gift. Fabric requirements for binding 1/2 yard. #HhQ7306




Sunflower Cardigan
Here is another fun addition to my Sweatshirt Cardigan line. The chenille of the big sunflower has a wonderful texture that is easy to create. Single layers of brown plaids and checks for the centers are better suited to the scale of the smaller sunflowers. Use a single gold for all the petals or as many scrappy shades as you can find (I used 10 different golds). #HhQ7309




Hedghog Quilts Poinsettia Cardigan
Here is a cozy sweatshirt cardigan that is just right for the holiday season. Dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. I used rich flannels for the poinsettias but it would look great in hand dyed or batik fabrics as well. This project makes a very impressive Christmas gift. #HhQ7310
