Hey quilt peeps! I'm gonna make this post short and sweet cause it's Sunday and I gotta brunch (But first, a moment of honesty – even if I go with people who "brunch" I most definitely ate breakfast the second I woke up. Breakfast is the best and no group of trendy urbanites is going to convince me otherwise. Now where was I?).
That's right! I want you to have this Aria quilt pattern PDF for free. Yippee!
My Needle-Turn Appliqué Supplies
- 14" Wooden Hoop
- Thimble (if you have read any of my hand quilting posts, you know how much I loooove this leather thimble)
- Gold Eye Embroidery Needles
- Needle Threader
- Safety Pins (Because there are over 165 pieces of fabric to sew in place, I chose to baste very quickly and simply with a single safety pin through each piece.)
As you can see below, I used a 14" wooden hoop to stabilize the quilt top. I did not want the raw edges of the fabric to show, so I used a (time-intensive) technique called needle-turn appliqué to sew the fabric pieces.
If you would prefer to use raw edge appliqué, dimensions for those templates are also included in the PDF pattern - see link below.
