Quilt patterns from Pine Tree Lodge (located in Minnesota – have you ever noticed how many talented quilters and quilt designers come from Minnesota? – must be something in the air there!) are full of variety. Simple pieced patterns, intricate pieced patterns, colorful, muted, applique, piecing mixed with applique, quilts, table toppers, samplers, totes and more! No matter your skill level, or the type of quilt you prefer, you’ll probably find several patterns that you like.
Homegrown Winter is a sampler with snow scenes, bells, a bright red cardinal, and several traditional blocks : friendship stars, log cabin, flying geese. Easy applique templates are included in the pattern. The wallhanging finishes at 34″ x 44″. Swap this out with the other Homegrown sampler patterns: Spring, Summer and Fall.
A Parade of Seasons is another group of seasonal samplers. Both of these sets of samplers are great for cleaning up some of those fabric scraps that seem to keep multiplying.
It’s called Heartstrings, but you can choose pine trees or stars if you prefer. Use flannel or chenille to add texture. This makes a great baby quilt. Grandkids, anyone?!
Daisy Dash uses a modified churn dash block to simulate daisies sprinkled across the quilt. The pattern includes instructions for four sizes: bed quilt, lap quilt, wall hanging and table topper. Check out that unusual vine-y border on the lap quilt.
Miss Mabel’s Garden (I have to say I just love this one!) is a collection of patterns with multiple techniques . . . piecing, applique, embroidery. The book includes placemats, table runners, wall quilts and bed quilts. Fifteen projects in all for all skill levels.
Be sure to visit the Pine Tree Lodge website where you will find extra downloadable projects to go with some of these patterns.
