Friday finds April 10

Did ya miss me?  I missed last week, so I will try to make this one good.

Vintage View: FREE For the Cause Bed Quilt Pattern  A full size quilt from McCall's Quilting.  It is called For the Cause and here is the link for the free download.   It is based on an Amish 1820 quilt.  See the link for details.  Such a perfect scrap quilt, and I can think of a lot of color ways that this would be good in.

  I fell in love with this one immediately!  It is done in blues, it blends, and it is soothing, and it is called Watercolors!  What more do you want?
  The full pattern can be downloaded at All People Quilt here.   I may need to add this to my list of future projects.

From Vicki's Crafts blog

 No pattern needed for this one.....but I loved the use of color and simple arrangement of coin strips and the 4 patch units on point.  This scrap quilt is from Vicki's Crafts blog and you can read about it here. 
     This could put a dent in the scrap basket, or that stack of left over coins and 4 patch blocks.

Bordered Diamonds Pattern via Flickr Very nice in cool colors palette...

  Isn't this one a beauty?     The colors of the sea.....simple and striking.   Dana at Stormy Days found this pin from a flickr post.   Karen, the maker, says it is Bordered Diamonds pattern from the book Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts.

It is amazing what the added border does to the diamond shape.  I think the variety of the border colors makes this one very striking.

 One last free one.....this is from Connie at Freemotion by the River.
  It is her new pattern called Piano Keys.  Jelly roll friendly for those of you that use precuts....and great for us that use scraps too.  Her blog offers a tutorial.....and links to the full pattern that is free on Craftsy for the rest of the month.  Know where I am heading!  Thanks, Connie, for offering this to us.

  As always, please visit the links provided for pinning for future reference.
That's it for the week.  I feel like I am living in "fast time" --- where did the week go?  Hope your time has been productive and full of inspiration.
Happy stitching.

Thanks for the shout out, I actually have that book and pinned that quilt to remind me, shame on me that I spend more time on pinterest than looking though my quilt books, LOL. That Watercolor quilt is gorgeous, I know it's going on my "to do" list.

Ohhh, thanks Debbie. I love half square triangles. That first one might have to go on my project list! :-)

You've made some beautiful finds! I especially love the scrappy ones, but those two watery colored ones are so beautiful!

Lots of lovelies - oh, like the setting of the 4-patch and coins which would work so nicely with the ones I have in progress.
