Part Four : Patterns

So either you decide to measure and make up your own quilt, or you buy a pattern which will tell you how much material you need, what to cut, some even supply the material if you're willing to pay for the privilege. The patterns I like are mostly from Sunflower Fabrics. I have made the Country Quilt here and the Little Stars for Granny here and I am about to make the Rose Gold Quilt.

Books and magazines are the best sources of patterns as they are always very thorough and talk you through every step, but below is a list of pattens I found online which I like.

Free Patterns

Amy Butler's Mid Modern Quilt Look in the free patterns section
Olive Rose Quilt Pattern

Almost a Flower Garden
Merry Go Round
Some block patterns which you put together
Here's a long list of free patterns, most though, are not my kind of thing

Sunflower Fabrics Patterns
Floral Dreams
Tikki Patterns

Patterns with material
At Waters Edge
Decorator Quilt

Usually whatever quilt is on the cover has a pattern inside.
Australian Patchwork & Quilting
Contented Cat
The Quilter

But what if you just want to design your own...
