FREE PATTERN: Pleasures and Pastimes

Hi Friends, how are you doing?  I hope you have had a good week so far.  Remember these scrumptious fabrics?

They are from Benartex’s new line Nesting Place.  From Benartex’s website: “Nesting Place is a soft-rich collection that is a great nod to the beautiful things in life–sweet music, birds chirping, and the warmth of family, friends, laughter and love. Blooming flowers, scrolling vines, antique bird cages and a gorgeous damask round out the group. Also included is a damask stripe that lends itself perfectly for borders, in soft creams, pinks, and green. Nesting Place is perfrect for baby quilts, nursery decorations and even bed quilts, totes, dresses, curtains and other home dec projects.” Benartex is offering a free pattern using the fabrics, designed by yours truly.  I am pleased to show you Pleasures and Pastimes, the silhouette version:

And the sans silhouette version:

Pattern instructions are downloadable as pdf here.  Enjoy! :)  I can’t wait to make my own quilt using this pattern!  I am going to do the silhouette version.

  1. So pretty, Wendy! And this fabric collection is beautiful. I’ve been kicking around the idea of making a small quilt for our piano teacher (if I ever finish the quilt I’m in hte midst of now!) and this could be perfect for her.
