120 Free Modern Quilt Patterns

120 Free Modern Quilt Patterns @

I love Modern Quilts. I do. I do. I do. Because I do, I’ve hunted down 120 free modern quilt patterns. I have searched blogs and websites to find the best free modern quilt patterns. I’ve read each post and page to insure all instructions appear to be complete and accurate. Free is fun and a great way to expand your skills without spending money.

I like my lists to grow and I can’t keep them all in one place on a post so I have been updating my pages on the top of the page. The 120 free quilt patterns are listed there.  You can see the list here or at the top of the page under Free Tutorials and Patterns > Modern Quilting Patterns – Free.  As I find more I will continue to add new patterns to the list. Looking for a new quilt pattern, be sure to look at the Modern Quilting Pattern list first.

I’m still updating pages, but feel free to poke around and see what is new. I’m making some changes and will keep you posted on what is new and helpful.

Also as a side note, giveaways had been slow over Christmas but things are picking up again. There were so few giveaways last week that I didn’t post a Giveaway Round Up but it will be back this weekend. Today I added 11 new giveaways so be sure to stop by and look. You can win if you don’t enter. You can find the Giveaway List here or at the top of the page.

Happy New Year to all.

See you next time,

$1.00 + 1 hour = 6 Gifts for Dog Owner Friends


$1.00 + 1 hour = 6 gifts for dog owner friends

I found this great pattern and thought I would share. Yep, $1.00 and 1 hour for 6 gifts is correct. The fabric was $3.00 a yard at JoAnn’s and I used 12″  or 1/3 of a yard to make 6 ties

I made one the other day so that made this round of making them easier but I did time myself and it took almost one hour to cut out and sew together all 6 ties. They are so darn cute too.

Dog Tie

To make I followed the instructions I found at Dog Under My Desk. You can find the instructions and pattern here. The only thing I did differently was to iron on my interfacing to one large piece and cut out 3 times at a time.

Thanks Dog Under My Desk for the great pattern.

See you next time.
