Hello Friends, I am excited to share with you a free-to-use pattern today! Wish You Were Here was a line that debuted at Houston Fall Market last year. The picture shows the sample quilt being hung at Hoffman Fabrics’ booth at Houston last year.
The fabric line features the Paris and Rome versions – where scenes of Paris and Rome are printed on the fabrics. The idea behind the quilt design was to cut up the prints and incorporate them into “stamps” — thus the stamp liked blocks sprinkle all over the quilt designs.
Here is the Rome version:

I hope you have liked my touristy Wish You Were Here quilt design. NOW, I am curious to know if you have a place you should dearly like to visit but haven’t.
Thanks for stopping by! Back to work I go…. Have a most blessed day!

What a fabulous idea! I love the photo edge look. Wouldn’t that be a fun edge to use in a memory quilt?
Like Mary, above, the first thing I thought of was the scalloped edges of the old fashioned photos. I love this! Thank you!
We are going to Paris later this year! What a great quilt for fabric mementos! Thanks for sharing.
My first thought when I saw the quilt was postage stamps, different sizes from different places…… Fun idea with several possibilities. You always inspire, Wendy.
Thanks! love the this way to make a postage stamp frame – will be having fun with this!
Oh, this is a fabulous quilt design! I can see using it to highlight all sorts of fun focal prints. I’ll definitely be using this one.
I have been very lucky and had the opportunity to travel extensively. My husband and I live on our boat and are enjoying seeing the world from the water. We hope to travel the world this way!
Thanks for sharing your talents so freely, Wendy.
Thank you for this creative and lovely pattern.
