BLOCK PATTERNS for quilting (or not....)
Did you like to trace and color when you were a kid?

These patterns are packaged in an easy-to-use 8" format, and were designed to be just traced, colored in, and quilted. (No lead line tape) 
Use a black fabric marker (or fine point "Sharpie") to trace over the lines and to fill in background areas; add more depth and interest with color fabric markers, inks, or paints; join blocks together in a variety of configurations to create stunning panels and then quilt over them (or don't) however you like! Triangles can be joined to create more square blocks...the possibilities are endless!

Other project ideas?....pillows, seat or chair covers, potholders, table runners, hand or tote bags....

Enlarge or reduce to suit your project needs - mix and match! 

Even if you don't quilt, these can be used to create frame-able wall art.

Color examples are displayed with each to show the possibilities...and to spark your creative imagination!

FABRIC SUGGESTIONBasically any 100% cotton (or other natural fiber) fabric will do. Choose first according to color preference, then make sure the overall pattern or design is small (like tiny flowers, squiggley lines, marbles, etc...) - in other words, no big bold prints that might distract from the design you're tracing. I suggest considering the reverse side of fabrics too...sometimes just a slightly lighter or more muted version of the "right" side and still accepts ink, paint, and thread just as well!
Check out Northcott Fabric's "Stonehenge" collection; top quality 100% cotton in a wide selection of beautiful blender tones & colors that would make stunning backgrounds for any of these designs!

COLORING MATERIALS: There's a wealth of options out there, from inks, to markers, to paints, and even crayons. My own personal preferences are inks and paints. Imagine Crafts (Tsukineko) offer an amazing selection of ink colors, along with corresponding markers that are double tipped ("fine" and "brush" tips). Their black markers work great for tracing lines (if you make a mistake it can be "erased" with a little mild soap and cold water), but I prefer their little ink pots for filling in color because the ink lasts longer and can be applied with brushes (acrylic). Markers dry out after a while, and the felt tips wear. As for paints I recommend trying the Jaquard/Lumiere line of fabric paints....very affordable, can be "thinned" to achieve a more transparent "water color" look by using an extender, and leave a nice soft feel. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER'S RECOMMENDATIONS!!

Check out dharmatrading.com....they sell all these products and more, and both their service and pricing is top notch!

ALWAYS PRE-WASH YOUR FABRIC!! Most fabric inks and paints will not adhere well to fabric that has not had the sizing washed out. Tracings etc. may not heat seal for permanence either.

NOTE: When making the large 18" square, triangles used for the outer corners will need to be enlarged aprox. 225% (short sides 
must be 8" long). A 2" border will bring finished size to 18" square.
Outer triangles for this design were created by cutting the square block pattern diagonally in half.

Here's an example of one already done.The center square/diamond was traced from one 8" x 8" pattern ("Knot Square") and the corner triangles, contained in the same packet, were each traced separately. Then all five pieces were sewn together to form a 12" x 12" square.
