Today's post is about quilting patterns. One of the biggest advantages of a quilt-as-you-go method is that it gives you the freedom to tackle quilting patterns on a small project that you might be afraid to commit to a whole quilt with. It gives you the chance to learn and practice a pattern without fighting the bulk of a whole quilt. Also, you can try a bunch of different patterns in the same quilt!

|Star block with flowers|
|Chain Squares, an Angela Walters design|
|Cursive writing "Hey diddle diddle..."|
|Dutchman's Puzzle block quilted with Flower Power, Angela Walter design|
|Pinwheel quilted with simple swirl|
This simple swirl (above) is a design I made myself.

If you are just beginning your FMQ journey, take heart :) It will take time and patience, but you CAN do it. If this non-artist, can't-sketch, straight-lines and square-corners please, person can do it then anyone can!
