Monday Finds

Happy Monday! Some things that have caught my eye in the past week:

Bric a brac
Fat Quarterly Issue 12 is out! This issue's focus is pre-cuts, and it includes lots of cool patterns to use up those spare layer cakes and jelly rolls. I especially like Tacha Bruecher's Bric-a-Brac pattern, shown above. Visit the Fat Quarterly website to subscribe or purchase the issue.

Cosmic quilt
Tracey Jay's Cosmic pattern. I fell head over heels in love with this one the moment I saw it! I can't wait to make it! Tracey is also offering acrylic templates to use with the pattern. How cool is that? And today is the last day that she's offering the pattern on sale, so get to her shop quick!

The Dot Dash Bag by Sara of Sew Sweetness. I love that this bag is more messenger-style than standard tote, and if the multiple pockets and zippers don't keep me organized, I don't know what will. : ) Sara's pattern shop is here.

Free quilt patterns. Lastly, I did a little Pinterest reorganizing last week (I wanted to make my boards a little more focused and specific), and as a result I now have a board just for free quilt patterns! There are some amazing quilt patterns out there that won't cost you a dime, and I'm collecting my favorites on this board. Enjoy, and have a great week!
