1. Paper-pieced Pilgrim hat

This free Pilgrim hat pattern is simple to stitch and can easily be personalized with embroidery or a fabric pen, like the designer did when she wrote “Massachusetts” up the side. This would work great on place mats or table runners, or combine it with pumpkin and/or turkey blocks for a fun and festive wall hanging.

Finally have the sewing room I have always wanted. Now I can start learning to quilt. I consider myself a beginner. Have made a few and am quite proud of them. Found a few designs I am interested in.


Me too. I just moved into a two bedroom cottage, and I now have my sewing studio. I have been quilting for over 12 years, and I still call myself, “The imperfect quilter”. Keep at it, and you will surprise yourself everyday, with your beautiful creations.
