Pre-Cut Party Free Pattern & Linky Party

I had a wonderful surprise birthday trip last week, a little cold but I did need my swimsuit…. More about that next week, now it’s Pre-cut Party time! I am aware that many quilters don’t actually use many pre-cuts, either they like doing their own ‘thang’ or they don’t know where to start with a strip set or charm pack. The idea behind my Pre-cut Party is to show you and inspire you to use these fabric gems. At the beginning of every month, I send out a free pattern to my Newsletter subscribers, each PDF includes full colour instructions and where needed, full-size templates. Patterns are based on one or more pre-cut formats and range from quilts and cushions to table runners and purses. 


So this month's pattern, a little late due to mentioned birthday trip, is a hand-sewing project and features an English paper-pieced Dresden plate to make up this gorgeous cushion. I have then used more 'wedges' to create a pretty border. I have made mine from my beautiful strip set in Henna Garden from Michael Miller, but you can use fat quarters, charm squares, or even scraps from the stash.


If this project takes your eye, or you would like access to past Pre-Cut Party patterns, all you have to do is subscribe to my Newsletter – it’s completely free, and what’s more you’ll hear about my latest products and events, plus some great subscriber-only offers. Click below to subscribe now! 



To keep on theme, I’ve decided to make the Pre-Cut Linky Party a monthly thing, linking up with that month’s free pattern. So, now it’s your turn, remember, it doesn’t have to be a finished project, it could even just be a pre-cut you’ve bought and have no idea what to make and you're looking for inspiration!

  1. Such a pretty pillow! Love the quilting, especially the echo spaced more than 1/4" away - makes a great impact. Thank you for sharing this on Midweek Makers

    1. Thank you Susan :) I have to admit I rushed the centre circles a bit, they're a bit wobbly!
