Enjoying quilt making at Thimblelady couldn’t be easier!
All quilting patterns here are Thimblelady’s original designs and are FREE to SHARE. Whether you are a quilt maker creating for yourself or for your loved ones, or you are a quilting business owner, feel free to enjoy my patterns and supplies.
You can make as many copies as you like for your students or your customers, however please don’t erase “Thimblelady” and call it your design. Encourage your friends and customers to visit Thimblelady for their hand quilting, applique and piecing tools and supplies – your support is most appreciated. Enjoy the love and fun of quilt making! More new designs are coming.
These free quilt patterns are designed as a whole-cloth quilt designs or as a filler to be used as quilting patterns in your pieced or appliqued designs. For example, some can be used as centre block in the middle of your double wedding ring quilt. Scale the pattern by resetting the printing size on your printer/computer to suit your need.
How to use the free patterns
Choose as many hand quilting patterns as you want to make
Click on the patterns of your choice. All patterns are in original size and professionally drawn by Liuxin with Adobe Illustrator and ready to be printed and enjoyed. Since most quilters have home printer for A4 size paper, design elements fit into A4 size whenever possible. Once you have clicked download, you can simply go to “Completed Orders" to print it out on your home printer. For large size patterns that fit into A2 or A1 paper, you will receive it through your email in PDF file.
Save the PDF file to your USB drive ($5/each from a local post office). Take the USB drive to local printer (e.g. Officeworks) to print the patterns in their original size.
