Just when you thought you’d seen the last quilting-related post on this blog, here comes another one. 🙂 I’ve written up a PDF pattern for my Tulip Quilt, and it’s totally free! Download and enjoy!
The pattern will reside on the dedicated Tulip Quilt page of this blog, and I’ve added a link in the menu bar of the blog header. Check out the page for more details about the pattern. I’ll keep track of any updates and errata on that page.
Now, you may be asking yourself a few questions, such as:
Is blog going to turn into a quilting blog?
Nope! While I enjoyed making this quilt and putting the patten together, my true love is garment sewing, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
Are you planning to release any more patterns?
Nope! I already had the pattern for this quilt worked out from 11 years ago (!!), so writing it up wasn’t that much extra work. I don’t see myself making any more quilts anytime soon (or ever!), so don’t hold your breath for any more quilting patterns. As for garment patterns, yeah right! That is WAY more work, and honestly I have no interest in ever developing one.
Why aren’t you charging anything for this pattern?
There are many reasons why this pattern is free (check out the Tulip Quilt page for details), but mostly it’s because I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in combining my passion for sewing with any sort of business. Sewing is my hobby, pure and simple. I had a ton of fun putting this pattern together, and I don’t need or want to be paid for enjoying my hobby in my free time.
Any other questions? Ask away!
Share your Tulip Quilts
If you use this pattern to make a quilt or anything else, I’d absolutely love to see it. You can post photos in the Tulip Quilt Flickr group so we can all admire your work. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this pattern, and happy sewing!
