FREE Pattern Saturday

It's still July and here is one more pattern for Christmas in July. When there's snow, there's Frosty! If where you live is like where I live, it's sweaty hot outside and I can only dream of snow. I've shared this before and it's worth sharing again because this fun pattern works with just about ANY set of fabrics.

This is a delightful 1930s print that is Winter themed (ok, I know you see gingerbread houses and Christmas stockings and candy canes - what can I say?) This is Frosted Blocks and it's FREE!

Frosted Blocks: 56" x 65"

This uses my tried and true pattern which I call Tilt. I first made this style of quilt in 2002 when I looked at the Tri-Recs ruler and figured I could "tilt" some charm squares. I called it "The Talking Quilt" because the squares are novelty prints that would get the interest of a child and get them to "talk" about each one. Don't use this for nap time - they won't go to sleep!

Then I made it again for Windham in 2007:

Tumbling Dice - FREE pattern

Then I made it again using another Windham Fabrics collection called "Cream and Sugar." I gave this to my next door neighbor who loves drinking tea.

And I made it AGAIN for P and B Textiles (2017) and that is a FREE pattern, too! Yes, you can see that this works with just about any sort of fun images.

Where the Wild Things Are - FREE pattern!

OK, that's enough. I have more but I'll leave those for another day. Click on those links above and you can have THREE FREE patterns that use my Tilt Block. If you have a Tri-Recs ruler, the Creative Grids Perfect Rectangle ruler or my set of Arrowheads Rulers, then these will work.

TEMPLATES are included in each of the patterns, of course!! Pull out your Christmas prints and get going on a quilt or two so you're ready for that unexpected time you need a gift to give.


  1. As usual, you have given me ideas! I have some really cute animal fabric that screams fussy cut and also, some seasonal ideas!

    1. I have used this so many times for little kids' quilts. And if you have the Tri Recs ruler or something similar, it goes very quickly.

  2. Good idea for some kid panels I have. Even the shapes formed between the blocks is interesting. Thanks for another great idea, Debby!

    1. Always let the fabric do the work. Little kids won't care what pattern you use; they just want to see fun prints, right?

  3. I have some music theme fabrics that I think would work well with this pattern. Thanks.

  4. Great pattern to try. I am going to use this pattern to make a quilt for our worthy cause program for donation through our Guild. Thank you for the pattern, design is perfect to make an unfortunate child happy.
