You've heard of Grandma's Flower Garden quilts, well here's my zesty modern version to excite the senses! If you've ever longed to try English Paper Piecing but have been daunted by the prospect of hand sewing an entire quilt, this pattern is for you. Test your hand sewing skills on an achievable project that retains the desirable heirloom quality that only hand sewing can give. I give recommendations for choosing your fabrics to keep the modern look, but you could use any fabrics you prefer. The pattern includes all the templates you need (actual size, so no fiddling about!), diagrams and full instructions. There are also links to my blog for tutorials and photos, and of course I'm happy to answer any questions you might have :) All this for free! So what have you got to lose, download the pattern and have fun - happy sewing!

Hi, my name is Stephie. Welcome to Dawn Chorus Studio, my creative space! I hope you'll feel inspired to make some of the projects I share here. My patchwork and quilting projects are full of colour which ensures making them is as enjoyable as the finished item! Most of my patterns will feature a little relaxing hand sewing, whether that's quilting or embroidery, but if that's not your thing you can usually use your trusty sewing machine instead and this will be indicated in the pattern description. My patterns include full descriptions, colour photographs and diagrams where appropriate. The free patterns also include links to tutorials on my blog. Other patterns will have tutorials included. I'd be over the moon if you try out some of my projects, big or small, and share pictures here and I'm always happy to answer any questions you might have over at my blog Thanks for stopping by!
