Country Comforts

Country Comfort is a free pattern! The arrangement of easy-to-make triangle-squares and four patches gives this bed-size quilt interest. Select squares in country colors as designer Bev Getschel did, or choose your own color scheme.

Jewels of the Garden - Free Floral Quilt Pattern

This bonus quilt is to make Jewels of the Garden as seen in the September/October issue of Love of Quilting. Gail Kessler’s quilt is a reproduction of a late nineteenth century quilt from the collection of the Winterthur Museum in Wilmington, Delaware.
