Homespun Holidays Quilt Pattern By Kaaren Johnston of The Painted Quilt

One of the things I love about the holiday season is all the bright red and green colors associated with the Christmas season.  Red, of course, being my favorite color.   So, I was happy to see that Kaaren Johnston had yet another wonderful pattern on her The Painted Quilt blog showing you how to make a Homespun Holidays red quilt.  That would look right at home in my house.  How about yours?

First Friday Freebie #22 - Homespun Holidays

Here's what Kaaren had to say about her pattern:  Can you believe it’s November already? Where does the time go?

I finished this month’s First Friday Freebie this past Sunday, a couple of minutes before the lights went out. We were hit with a wicked nor’easter, the same storm that brought 12” and more of snow to the New England states. Thank goodness the moisture that we experienced was in the form of large amounts of driving rain and 65+ mph winds rather than snow. We lost power for 20 hours and that amount of time without heat or lights seemed like an eternity.

With the Holiday season just around the corner, I decided upon a seasonal design for this month’s FFF which I called Homespun Holidays.

Kaaren's Bio: I am an artist and have recently retired from actively designing, publishing and travel teaching in the decorative painting industry. A short while later, in December of 2010, we moved from Eastern Ontario to the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. Quilting, stitching, applique and most recently rug hooking have become my new passions. Oh, and did I mention that I love to make and collect pincushions and needlecases! Join me on the First Friday of every month when I release a new Freebie design for you to make and enjoy.
