FREE PATTERN: Wish You Were Here

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
