Hey, Look: It's A Free Pattern!

My first pattern!
You might have noticed there have been some changes around here at Freshly Pieced headquarters. The blog got a whole new look last week, and this week—patterns! In fact, I'm so excited about this new endeavor, the first one's on me. : )

I did a little tweaking to my "Kissing Fish" tutorial from a few years ago and turned it into a full-fledged baby quilt pattern, which I'm now making available for free on Craftsy and Threadbias. Click here or here to download the PDF pattern.

I hope you'll enjoy Kissing Fish! If you make this quilt, please upload pictures to the Freshly Pieced Flickr groupCraftsy or Threadbias. I would love to see what you do with this pattern.

And stay tuned: More patterns will be coming soon. I'll be releasing Cartwheels as a full pattern on Thursday! And I'm hoping to release two more patterns by the end of the year: Chain Reaction (my design for Quiltmaker magazine last year), and a brand-new design called Street View.
