There are a lot of fun and generous quilting blogs out there. One that I have recently enjoyed is BabyBoomer Quilting Bee. Jamie is a blogger from Louisiana who features many projects and at the moment she is participating in Judy Laquidara's challenges for this year. In addition, Jamie has a wonderful selection of free quilt patterns that she offers on the side bar of her blog. The pattern, Kristy's Dream, is a nice pinwheel type pattern, Missy's Fall Garden uses "Layer Cakes", which are 10x10 precut blocks, Nicole's Journey is a great way to use up scraps and Kendra is a bright way to use black in your quilts.
She also had a nice tutorial on partial seams. This technique is used in the Nicole's Journey quilt and well worth learning to do.
Jamie's blog is a fun place so go and check it out and maybe you'll be inspired to start a new project. diana
