Hey again everyone! I’m on a roll with blogging these last few days 😉 Thank you all for being here and following my quilting/fabric designing endeavors with me. As another show of my thanks, Lecien Fabrics and I are gifting another free pattern for you all – woohoo!
This quilt is unique because it’s made using a heavier cotton-linen fabric from my latest fabric collection called Loyal Heights, available in stores now (Spring 2019). Because the material is thicker, I decided not to use batting and instead tied the quilt with yarn for a quick finish. It makes a wonderful quilt/blanket that’s a bit lighter, perfect for Summer or warmer climates. It’s a super easy quilt to make too – great for beginner quilters! Bonus: no traditional binding for this pattern!
Usually linen is a bit scratchier material, however this cotton-linen is super soft because I believe it’s 80% cotton, 20% linen. It makes a wonderful home decor fabric as well, but with me, my brain goes straight to quilts! :-p
This is my Loyal Heights collection, printed on a larger scale for cotton-linen only. Not shown is the gold metallic hearts in the polka dot print because Lecien wasn’t able to add the metallic stamping in time for quilt market, which is when I made this quilt.
Unfortunately I am not sure who carries the cotton-linen fabric at this time. I will eventually have some in my shop and will be selling these quilt kits but I have not received the bolts yet.
I was inspired to make this quilt from this no-batting quilt that I made many moons ago. Check it out for more inspiration. 🙂
As promised, you can find the free pattern by clicking the link below.
Hope you enjoyed this post and the free pattern!
Happy Quilting 🙂
