Bernie Sanders Mini Quilt

by Julie Hirt

Came up with this while playing around with my longarm software.  I used Illustrator to draw the lines for the hair and glasses, then imported into Art & Stitch to turn it into a quilting pattern.


I’m loving the combination of Illustrator with Art & Stitch and have made several modern style E2E designs that I hope to have for sale shortly.


If you happen to be a Bernie fan (or want to make a mini for someone who is) and have a computerized long arm, the free pattern is available at JulieHirt.com under about > downloads. The pattern is the hair and glasses, but if you have the Art & Stitch software you can easily add some text!


Tag me here or on Instagram @juliehirt if you make one.  I used baby blue Kona cotton, Omni Superior thread and Prismacolor pencils.

  1. This is fantastic!

  2. I know some people who would love this quilt…they will have to be happy with mug rugs. Printed the pattern at 50%, traced onto fabric and stitched using my straight-stich 45 year old Kenmore. I’ll do more because it was a fun break from some… Serious quilting.
