Freebie Round Up

There are quite a few freebie bits and pieces that I want to alert you to this morning.
First up Embroidery Library have 3 lovely vintage border designs which could be used on may projects. They are available until April 21 US time. They would look wonderful around the bottom of an apron or perhaps the end of  a pillowcase.

Week 2 of the San Francisco Stitch Co Yahoo group Spell Binder mystery is also available from the group files. Make sure you go to the group and sign up if you wish to do this mystery project. Each instalment is only available for a week and if you miss one you can purchase it from their website  for $1.49

Flair magazine have posted some freebies for their latest magazine . You can find the freebies to download on the right hand side of their home page. One of them is a cute little needlecase.

Urban threads have a lovely free design until April 22nd. The Earth Tree has each of the contrinents as the leaves. Tasmania is right over in the lower right hand side of the tree. It is just hanging in there by the skin of its teeth.

The Quiltery have their latest cat Zelda in the Kool Kats quilt BOM available. This is a traditionally sewn applique design not an embroidered applique design. However, they also have Maynard as an embroidery freebie.

The Quiltery are also  having a sale. For $100 you can have access to all of the design sets in their embroidery club and also the coordinating quilt patterns in their pattern club. Each pattern has a corresponding embroidery design set in most cases so you can choose an element from the quilt pattern and combine it with the embroidered design rather than an applique element. You actually get all of the designs and quilt projects in each of those sets. Click on each set in both the embroidery club designs and the pattern club designs to what is actually available. 
I am going to sign up for both and will be making some projects combining sections from both clubs down the track. If you would like to join my mailing group where we make projects with these  designs and patterns please email me HERE
Missouri Star Quilt Co also have another great new video on how to easily cut and stitch the old favourite Hourglass block. Of course you do not have to buy layer cakes to make this quilt. You can cut 10 inch squares from your stash. In fact you can make this quilt with any size squares.
