Patterns of Life Series

Garden of Eden – Block #1 – January

The first block of our 2017 Patterns of Life series is the Garden of Eden block. It is created using only 3 templates!  It’s a fast and fun bock to create.

Below you will find the links to the instructions, to the Templates, and also to the rotary cutting instructions, if you prefer to rotary cut your pieces.

NOTE: Be sure that “fit to page” is NOT checked when you print your templates, or the templates will not print out in the correct size.

When constructing the blocks for this series, always try to press seams to the dark side, if at all possible.

Storm at Sea – Block #2 – February

The second block of our 2017 Patterns of Life series is the Storm at Sea block. It is created using only 3 templates!  It is a bit more challenging to create, but I encourage you to give it a try. You might want to create a wall quilt using just this block. The movement the block creates across the quilt is stunning. It appears as if you have sewn curves, when in fact, there are NO curves! Below you will find the links to the instructions and to the Templates.

Be sure that “fit to page” is NOT checked when you print your templates, or the templates will not print out in the correct size. When constructing the blocks for this series, always try to press seams to the dark side, if at all possible.

Star of Bethlehem – Block #3 – March

The third block on our Patterns of Life Series is a fast and fun block!  The Star of Bethlehem uses five templates and goes together quickly. This block would be fun to make using red/white/blue fabrics, and even more fun diving into your fabric stash and creating a fun Star of Bethlehem Quilt made of scraps!

The pdf instructions are attached below, along with both rotary cutting instructions, and the templates. You can either cut the fabrics using the rotary cutting or template method.

Again, NOTE: Be sure your printer is NOT set to ‘fit to page’ or your templates will NOT be the correct size. Always turn off the “fit to page” selection when printing templates.

When constructing the blocks for this series, always try to press seams to the dark side, if at all possible.
