Garden Gate Charm – Free Pattern

A new pattern just in time for spring!  We like to use pre-cuts because they save time.  Pre-cuts are also an economical way to use all the colors and prints in an entire fabric line.  We were attracted to this fabric line because of the red/teal combination and the garden theme.  A cute quilted flower design is a nice finish for all you flower lovers out there!

In addition to posting this free pattern Garden Gate Charm 03 14 17_final on our blog, we will also be posting it to the FaveQuilts website.

FaveQuilts is our go-to destination for quilting inspiration. When we first started blogging and quilting, we happened upon their website and signed up for their newsletter Piecing it  Together. Every day since we have received a world of new patterns and techniques all delivered to our inbox!

If you live in a rural area or lead a busy life, it might be hard to join a quilting group and FaveQuilts can serve as your own personal quilting group!  They have introduced us to new techniques and ideas about the huge world of quilting, from hand piecing, to applique techniques to paper piecing. We have met so many wonderful designers and bloggers because of Fave Quilts.   We love it!

We borrowed a neighbor’s windmill to stage the above photo…you can see the iron shadows in the background.  While there is not a lot of green right now, we know spring will be here soon!  If you get started now, your Garden Gate Charm Quilt will be ready just in time for a picnic or your front porch swing!

    Hi Kelly,

    I just found your lovely Garden Gate Charm quilt pattern on FaveQuilts. I love the fabrics you chose. Are they from a charm pack, if so, may I ask which one? I’m just learning to quilt and would like to try my hand at it. Thank you for making the pattern available to us.

      Hi Sandy! This is Cindy from Gray Barn Designs. The fabric line I used for Garden Gate Charm was called “Vintage Picnic” by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics. I used a Vintage Picnic Charm Pack and alternated the printed fabrics with a charm pack of Kona Snow solids. Border #1 was a greenish teal fabric I had in my stash. Border #2 was Kona Red and Kona Snow fabric I had on hand. The outer border and binding was from the “Vintage Picnic” fabric line as well. Best wishes on your quilting adventures and feel free to follow our blog. We frequently post free patterns!

      Hi Janet! We apologize for this. For some reason this pattern continues to be a problem for downloading. I will contact WordPress and see what we can do to avoid this in the future. I’ll also send a copy to you via email. Thanks for bringing this to our attention and thanks for your patience!
