Half-Pint – Free Quilt Pattern
I have such good memories of making these quilts! This was a super fun quilt along we did in 2009 on Charming Chatter! I remember we had a giveaway contest where my sweet followers shared their ideas on naming this quilt! Esther came up with Half-Pint (the nickname Charles Ingalls gave to Laura), and since I loved Little House on the Prairie and it really seemed to fit the quilt, well she won! The PDF includes instructions for making a mini version (41" x 41") or a full size (59" x 71")! Scrappy really does make me happy, and these are super scrappy, right down to the scrappy binding ;)!! I made two minis and one of the larger version, but this mini made with bright, cheery 30's prints is definitely my favorite!
and I still put it out to hang on our bench throughout the year! Heck, this is one of my favorite of all of my mini quilts ;)!
I made the full size in Gypsy Rose, by Fig Tree fabrics (we get this one out in the fall).
(Holy Moly - our old couch and back in the days when we had carpet ;)!
And, I made another mini in Simple Abundance, by Bonnie and Camille (I gave this one to Kate ;)!
(thank goodness for improved photo quality over the last 8 years, huh? ;)!!
You can download the pattern for both sizes in PDF format HERE!
Hope you all have a great weekend, and wishing you all a super Happy Mother's Day ;)!
Thanks for sharing the lovely pattern. Happy Mother's Day.
