Comfort and Joy + Free PDF Pattern


Pinwheels and Patchwork free quilt pattern from A Bright Corner

I'm getting our Christmas quilting done early this year (and that's SO not like me)!  This last month I've been sewing with the new Christmas line from Riley Blake called Comfort and Joy.  It has the classic reds and greens, but also some great black prints that really make all the other colors pop.  (See all the prints here.)

When I first chose my fabrics for this project, I was on the fence about adding in that black plaid, but I'm so glad I did now!  I just love what it adds.  And aren't those snow globes charming?

The quilt I designed to go with these prints uses a set of rulers I've had for awhile now - the Tri-Recs rulers from EZ Quilting.  Have you heard of them?  They're handy to have, and there are some great tutorials and patterns out there that use the Tri-Recs rulers.  Never used the Tri-Recs rulers before?  Or maybe you own them but aren't sure how to use them?  I'll be back on Friday with a photo tutorial showing how I made these pinwheel blocks.

I'm calling this quilt Pinwheels & Patchwork.  It finishes at 60" x 69", and you can find a free PDF pattern to make your own Pinwheels & Patchwork here!

And you can find the Comfort and Joy fabrics in stores now - although they were going fast at my local quilt shop, so don't wait too long or you'll miss out.  You can also find them online here at: Olie & Evie, Fat Quarter Shop, and Lou Lou's Fabric Shop.  

The swirly quilting design I did is a panto called Party Streamers from Urban Elementz

And don't forget to grab the free PDF quilt pattern for Pinwheels & Patchwork.  If you make one I'd love to see!  Tag me on Instagram (@abrightcorner) and use the hashtag #pinwheelsandpatchwork.
