Today’s pattern I called “Ring of hearts”. It works up to 60″ square if made as shown, so a nice throw size. You can reduce this into a crib quilt by changing the block size.

I picked another Design Seeds palette this week:

This pattern is very easy–it just consists of 6″ and 12″ (finished) hourglass blocks. You can find a tutorial for them here. To make a 40″ square baby quilt, change the blocks to 4″ and 8″ finished. Or, 5″ and 10″ blocks will give you 50″ square. You get the idea.

About Free Pattern Friday:

I am learning how to use EQ7 and trying to stretch my designing and coloring muscles. I wanted to be able to share what I came up with, hence this series. I will list cutting sizes, and anything else that would be critical to figuring it out, but to be able to make this free I am not going to post instructions—you will need to work out the details, like fabric requirements and piecing, on your own.

You can use the free patterns in this series however you want except for to sell the pattern, copy the images, or mass-produce these quilts. All of the blocks I use are either included with EQ (which means they are in the public domain) or they are my own that I am giving permission to use. I would love to hear back if you make anything from these patterns!
