Rainbow Rays - Free Foundation Paper Pieced Quilt Block Pattern

Rainbow Rays – Free Quilt Block Pattern

When I saw the zipper pouch swap on Instagram, I just had to join! My partner liked modern designs- so I went with a modern rainbow for the pouch. I used Quilt Assistant to create my own foundation paper piecing pattern for the top. Now, I am offering the pattern for the top of the pouch for free! You can download the pattern by clicking here! The pattern includes the foundation paper piecing pattern, some tips/tricks, and coloring sheets you can use to try out colors! Basic foundation paper piecing instructions are not included, but there is a great tutorial here!

I created the pattern to fit the top of the medium Open Wide Pouch Pattern, but you can enlarge/shrink if you need a different size! On its own, this block completes at 12in x 4.5in (unfinished) and 11.5in x 4in (finished). You can use the finished block as the top of an open wide pouch or make several to put together to make your own mini quilt! :)

No Greater Love - Free Embroidery Pattern

No Greater Love – Free Embroidery Pattern!

This pattern was inspired by Easter, though it could be displayed all year long! The inspiration for this piece came from looking at all the bright pretty Easter things at the store. I was struck by how few pretty decorations they sell that celebrate the real meaning of Easter- Jesus’ sacrifice for us on the cross. Then, this idea popped into my head and I just had to make it! I decided to offer it as a free pattern as well! You can download it by clicking here. I hope you enjoy!

I tried out hand lettering for the first time with this pattern! I was originally going to use fonts, but decided to take a shot at lettering it myself. I was amazed it turned out since my everyday handwriting is terrible!

I chose back stitching for most of the pattern. I used split stitching for the “Love” to accentuate the cursive! I also chose to applique the hill with some big running stitches along the top! Overall, I am very happy with how it came out!

I hope you enjoy the pattern! If you use it, let me know! I’d love to see your work!
