from Stitched in Color on Flickr!

It's high time I shared some of the fantabulous creations that you've so kindly added to the Stitched in Color flickr pool.  If you're new to this community, you should know that all of these are made with free patterns.  We welcome you to jump right in!

Colorbrick {a beginner's quilt-along}

This, my first quilt-along, teaches a simple quilt step-by-step with lots of photographs and details.  If you've never made a quilt before this is a great place to start!

I shared this pattern over the summer in three different sizes from baby to super-large/queen.  You can download the PDF here.  With very large fabric cuts, this design is all about the fabric and getting to the finish real quick!

Bottled Rainbows Quilt-Along

We uncorked our rainbows of scrappy goodness early this spring, and lots of you are still making Bottled Rainbow blocks.  There have been many creative renditions of this quilt, and none fail to thrill me.  It's an easy, almost meditative sew that gets a bit addictive - fair warning.

Of course I didn't share all of the great things in the Stitched in Color flickr pool.  So, by all means, hop on over for some more eye candy.  Thank-you all for sharing your creations!  It's very inspiring to find my tutorials actually being used, and encourages me to keep on making. 

Happy Monday!
