Cupcakes and Ornaments – Day 05 of 12 Days…

Sadly, I’ve been without internet most of yesterday, and most of today. It finally came back on about an hour ago and I got to finishing up the uploading of the patterns. I was writing this post yesterday when it went down and stayed down. Apparently the troubles with the neighbor’s cable were not done with, they had to come and fix something in the ground.. Tore up the road and everything yesterday.

So I’m writing this post really fast on a Saturday to get it out to you. I do have a doctor’s appointment first thing Monday morning so please expect that post in the late morning hours too early afternoon.

I know it might be a little odd… but let’s play a little game, which of the following patterns is free? Just click the images below to find out!! — Note, Some of you have mentioned that you’re having an issue finding the free pattern??? It is the same way I always do it, there are just 8 images to click on, but as a hint: if you start at the top below you won’t open many to find the free pattern. If you see a price it’s not the free pattern, if you see the word “free” where the price should be, that’s the free pattern. Click thru like you always do to download it.

This pattern set is inspired by the artwork at Graphic Adventure.
Pattern Sizes are 6, 9, and 12-inch in each pattern.
Each shape comes with the cupcake and the ornament patterns (2 patterns for the price of one)
The full pattern includes the Mrs. Santa pattern as a bonus, it will not be sold individually.
Each pattern (except the free version) comes with a Guide also on how to get creative with ornaments and finishing them.
The full pattern is on intro at 25% off. Coupon Code: 12Days-Day05

The free version comes in the 6-inch sizes.

Basic Guidelines For This Event:

All downloads expire at the time of the next release or hopefully within 24 hours of the last post. During this event, I have two doctor’s appointments in the next 12 days, so posting tomorrow and next Wednesday maybe later in the day. Those of you who know me, that no matter what a previous days download stays up for 24 hours at the very least, after 24 hours it’s subject to expiration. I am very strict about this requirement. I will not send you a free pattern if you miss the deadline.

Patterns posted on Fridays, run the entire weekend giving my weekend visitors a chance to get at least one pattern during this event. I didn’t do this last year and I was sad about being so strict, so I’ve gone back to keeping them up for the weekend.

All downloads are on Payhip. – Payhip doesn’t like mobile downloads, so be prepared to send it to your email, Dropbox, google drive, or any other cloud service you may use if you are using a mobile device to download with. All payhip items are sent an email with the download link even tho you can download right after the purchase in your browser. If you’re on a mobile phone tho, wait until your on a device that you can use later. I do not own any mobile devices, so I do not know how to send it to your email, or a cloud service, I’m sure there are youtube videos or how to’s on the web to help you with this. Please get your download done the same day, as I delete these downloads after the expiration and they are removed from Payhip servers, they are not there forever for you to download freely.

If I made a mistake on a free pattern, the update will be fixed and everyone who downloaded it within the proper time frame will receive an email with the new download link to download it. You have 24 hours to get that done.

I will try to be posted by 6 am mst each day, but I’m not known for being on time during this event, so please know I will post as soon as possible. I’ve always ended this event on time tho, so don’t worry all 12 patterns will get posted.


Some thoughts on download issues. If you’re having a problem, try a different browser. You can always use the email you receive to click again. You get 5 tries to download the pattern. If you use all 5, you will have to go through the purchase process again to get the free pattern.

Helen Godden is doing another Christmas event on her Facebook page this year
(everyone whether on FB or not should be able to participate)
I have a lot of admiration for Helen’s work. She is a true quilt artist who freely shares her knowledge with us.
She is extremely gifted and is one of the few people who’s botm’s I have chosen to pay for.
Don’t miss this event, it is so worth the effort to learn her techniques.

My friend Susan’s site has several events also listed on her site that is also going on right now. You may be interested in those also. Susan offers some great updates for other things going on at blogs and such also. She’s well worth a visit.

  1. I was going back through all the posts I’ve missed with life being insane, and this is the cutest quilt ever, Marian! I just love all the little cuties. I can’t get anything to link, though, so I don’t know if I can afford it, or where to get it. I thought they would be on Payhip, but with a price, like Hot Chocolate is, but I can’t get it to go anywhere.

  2. Marian, I hope your dr appointment went well for you yesterday. I got worried towards evening when I checked in and didnt see your updated post. Praying alls well my dear.
    Thank you ever so for offering the gift of Christmas. Your so very talented.
    Again, I hope your well.
    My best,
    Monica from Ohio

    1. They open to Payhip which will have the prices and you can pay right there and then MUST download immediately because Payhip doesn’t save your purchases forever. These are the payhip links, hopefully those will open for you (you have to add https(colon, slash slash) to each. It won’t let me, thinks I’m spammer: The Entire quilt Santa Reindeer Polar Bear Penguin Elf Bear
      Mrs Claus is only available with the entire quilt pattern. Entire Quilt

      Hopefully her Internet will be back soon and she can help you if the above links still don’t work for you.

  3. None of the pictures opened for me. Disappointed.
    Have enjoyed the previous patterns. Thanks for them.

  4. Hurra, Hurra!
    Nun hat es doch geklappt. Ich konnte die Muster herunterladen. Vielen Dank dafür. Ich freue mich sehr

  5. Ich benutze ebenfalls Google Chrome, aber es tut sich nichts.Mein Klicken bringt kein Ergebnis.
    Sehr schade, denn die Muster sind bildhübsch.

  6. So CUTE – many thanks! Internet/No Internet – such a pain, but has all of us hooked. Hang in there Marian, know that we appreciate your message & efforts whenever it arrives!

  7. They are all so adorable, wish I was more financially able to purchase the set because I love them all. Thank you for the opportunity to own one of them though, much appreciated 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for the two patterns today! I love them all and seriously want to purchase the entire set–but I’ve over spent already and dear hubby would have a stroke if I spent anymore at this point!
    I am so enjoying your blog and the 12 days of Christmas. Thank you for hosting it.

  9. I was surprised when touching each of the images produces no results. I switched browsers with identical results. Please help.

    1. Did you click on the pictures? I use Google Chrome and had no problems. If that doesn’t work, try cleaning out your cookies and see if that helps.
