by Julie Hirt

I like big blocks!

The August blocks for Fat Quarter Shop’s Bella Skill Builder are awesome.

The top block is 24″ and this one is 20″.  Just for funsies I tiled them to see what they’d look like:

Umm… YES!  I totally want to make 9 of the bigger blocks for a 72″ throw. Super fun pattern that would make a good toddler quilt with 4 blocks.

You all know these patterns are FREE, right?  It’s not too late to make your own.  One more month and then on to assembling – exciting stuff!

Free 48″ Carpenter Star Pattern

by Julie Hirt

carpenter-star-627handworks-julie-hirt

Recently I made a large Tree Skirt and had several people on Instagram ask for some info, so I decided to write up a quick tutorial.

This large Carpenter Star comes together quickly and would make a super cute baby quilt as well.

Throw on a border or two to make it throw size.

For the Tree Skirt – here is how I cut the corners, center and skirt line.
Be sure to use a bias binding – at least around the center hole and leave 1/4″ for those points when cutting!

The pattern also includes a coloring page. :)

Would love to see your version if you make one!  Instagram hashtag #627carpenterstar

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.

by Julie Hirt

Wanted to share with you a tutorial I have posted over at Moda Bake Shop.

Color Weave - Julie Hirt - 627handworks

This is considered an ‘easy’ pattern and comes together quickly.  The blocks are pretty large and it’s easy to make a variety of sizes:

Crib: 12 blocks – 4 blocks wide, 3 rows (38″ x 51″)
Toddler Throw: 18 blocks – 5 blocks wide, 3 rows (47.5″ x 51″)
Throw:  24 blocks – 6 blocks wide, 4 rows (57″ x 68″)
Twin: 35 blocks – 7 blocks wide, 5 rows (66.5″ x 85″)
Full/Double: 40 blocks – 8 blocks wide, 5 rows (76″ x  85″)
Extra Long Twin:  42 blocks – 7 blocks wide, 6 rows (66.5″ x 102″)

The fabric is Tucker Prairie by One Canoe Two and I love the color and prints in this line.

Hexie Tiles – Foundation Paper Piecing Pattern

by Julie Hirt

I’ve been seeing a ton of Art Deco style tiles showing up in my Instagram feed lately and decided to make a paper piecing in one of the designs.

The above is what I consider an advanced layout – you will need to know how to sew Y seams to assemble.

The organized rows are what I consider a basic layout and you can assemble these without Y seams!

It’s really fun to play around with the placement:

Just changing up the background could make a huge difference too!

This pattern is FREE through Saturday on my Craftsy site, then it will cost $1.  The pattern includes 2 sizes:  3″ hexie walls and 2″ hexie walls. Which makes approximately 6″ and 4.5″ hexagons.

If you make one be sure to tag me on Instagram @juliehirt
