Easy quilting panel Fall pattern for beginners from Pieced Brain

Easy quilting panel Fall pattern for beginners

Welcome family and friends with this Easy quilting panel Fall pattern I have just released! The border has simple blocks so you can make this quilt in one day. It is perfect for a beginner quilter who is just learning the craft, and ideal for veteran quilters who want a new, but quick, Fall quilt.


Homecoming was made with the Happy Fall Y’all fabric collection by Timeless Treasures. It measures 34-1/2″ x 54-1/2″ and the block size is 2.5″. I chose a simple border because I wanted the messages on the panel to stand out ...

Adore Him Quilt from Alamosa Quilter

I ordered this panel and coordinating fabrics for my shop.

The fabric company had a quilt designed using these but I didn't really like their design. So I came up with my own design.

It finishes at 54" by 76" and we kitted it up. Kits are available in our Etsy Shop and in store. These kits are only available from my shop because I wrote the pattern.

I used a snowflake wide back for the backing, shown below.

If you purchase a kit and want this backing fabric to go with it you will need 1 3/4 ...

Answers to a few questions… from IVORY SPRING

Hello Friends, I hope your week got off a lovely start!  I am still chugging along at my end tending to the different irons in the fire!  First off, the second round of flowering has begun on my rose bushes.  Due to the heat, the flowers aren’t as pink as in the early spring.  And they don’t last as long either.


I actually tracked the “life” of a rose on my Instagram stories a couple of weeks ago, trying to see how long it took for a bud to mature into a flower.   With the growing conditions in ...

countryside cottage finish from Making A Lather

 This is a 2004 Joann block of the month that I have had for some time. I needed to finish it. The colors are rich and lovely. I have a couple in mind that I want to gift this. It is queen size. I have many joann quilts block of the months that I bought each year. I was so excited when I found them. The fabric was included and precut. The instructions had cute little hints that were actually helpful. I bought them each year, and then they have waited in a project box. Some I haven't even ...

Great Outdoors Quilt :: A Finish from Alamosa Quilter

Are you familiar with Connie Haley? Google her if you aren't to see all of her great designs. Now a fabric company has started working with her to get her designs on fabric. This quilt uses one of her lines, Great Outdoors, that I got in my shop this year. 

Here is the quilt.

The front has a newspaper print in it and I used a slightly different colorway of this print for the back.

Here are the fabrics from the line that I ordered. The first is a panel and second/third are the coordinates. All but the ...

Party Pie Pattern + Kit from Blossom Heart Quilts

Last year, I had great fun designing some exclusive quilt patterns for Connecting Threads, and the first one is now out!

Party Pie is a 24″ mini quilt that uses a charm pack and a couple of fat quarters of background to create a fun checkered pattern with a sprinkling of pies… I mean, circles. Quartered circles.

flower box quilt from Making A Lather

This quilt has been at the top of my list since the beginning of the year and, I feel pressure to do it right, so I have procrastinated. sigh...

I started cutting for this quilt. The colors and fabric is just scrumptious.

The pattern calls for sets of strips in light, dark, light, and, sets in dark, light, dark. I really tried to make these accurate. From here, I will be cutting diamonds for the tops of the baskets. I am a little intimidated to work with diamonds.

Once I get over the apprehension of cutting the diamonds wrong, It ...

1st one monthly goal for 2020 from Making A Lather

I bought this kit in September while I was in Utah for our daughter- in - laws funeral. I loved the kit, and the fabrics, and thought I would make it as a way to remember her and heal. Quilting does that for me. It is so beautiful, I was afraid to even open it. Not to mention, I have never spent that much for a quilt. So my first goal for January is to really open, and read, and plan on making this quilt. I may have to learn a new technique and organize a little differently.


It came with ...
