Well, somehow I managed to go and lose the pdf files that I’d created for these last patterns. I did these last summer for this event, so thought they were just sitting in the folder waiting to be released… I have no idea what happened to the pdfs, but I can’t release a pattern without a pdf, so, unfortunately, I had to set about re-creating all of the pdfs again. I had the patterns proofed last night by my testers to be sure we caught any mistakes as I’ve never written so many patterns all at once before and in such a short amount of time. I know making you wait three days for the last pattern isn’t fair either, but I wouldn’t have been able to release on Tuesday as it was so I am releasing them today.
Today is all about Continuous Lines. I’d mentioned on the first day of this event I’d release a continuous line pattern and a nativity, Today is the day. As this is my 5th year I really went all out on doing nativities this year since it’s my very favorite thing about Christmas.
One of my testers created a whole cloth quilt from the continuous lines in these patterns and it turned out beautifully. I tried to reduplicate the look in pictures but it is not easy to do and get you a sample that looks well. I have used some closeups instead to provide this.
Because these are continuous line patterns they are available in Hand/Free-Motion or Machine Embroidery designs. It’s your choice, which do you prefer?
The machine embroidery designs include a design for a simple single stitch line or a hand look design which is really lovely when used.
There are three total sets with the blocks having 12 patterns and the Borders and Ornaments 10 patterns each. One for your pieced blocks, one for borders, and one for fun, some ornaments for the tree.
Today there are four free patterns, two for hand, and two for machine embroidery.
When you buy the Blocks and Border sets
I’m giving the Ornaments set for free for a limited time only
You can also save an additional 15% off the two sets with the coupon code:
If you don’t want one of the sets, you can purchase the sets individually for 15% off each set, by using the cross-sell feature when you add the set you want to your cart. The Free Ornaments set is not part of this sale. I realize it seems like the same purchase, but it’s not, the ornaments are included already in the purchase of both all at once. If you use the cross-sell option I would still have to send you a coupon code to download them free, usingn the other option is better as they are already included in the download.
And last before I show the free patterns today…
Another pieced pattern, it wasn’t quite ready when I did the door knockers last week, so I waited for the testing to be done…
This cute nativity scene will easily go together in a day and be quilted too. My tester said she had so much fun putting this together.
