Groovy Baby and Funky Buttons Patterns



It has taken me a while, but I finally have the patterns written up for the Groovy Baby (photo above) and Funky Buttons quilts. I had to do them together because the Funky Buttons quilt (see photo below) was a bonus project using left overs from the Groovy Baby pattern. Of course, you don't have to make them both in order to do one. If you just want to make the Funky Buttons quilt, you can just follow the applique directions for the Groovy Baby quilt only reversing the colors. That is, cut the applique shape out of your white "background" fabric and apply it to a colored square.


If you have any questions, please just ask. I am not a professional pattern writer. While my directions make sense to me, I understand that they may not to clear to anyone else.

Here are the patterns. I am not sure how this works (or if it will work). Supposedly, you can upload files to Google Docs and then link to them in your blog. We'll see if I can do this. Please let me know whether or not the link works for you. If you really want the pattern and I can't get the link to work, I will just email it to you.

Lynn, it worked for me! Way to go! That is an awesome couple of quilts! I love it. I am really impressed that you (a) designed the quilt yourself, and (b) wrote a pattern to give away. Both of those are goals of mine, but I have never been brave enough to attempt either. Kudos to you, and thank you so much for sharing. I really love the baby quilt!

Naomi - I'd love to see a picture if you make one! The quilt is fairly simple to make with some basic piecing knowledge and basic applique skills. I'm not a professional pattern writer though so it may not be clear enough for a beginner. If you have questions, just ask.

These are great -- they remind me of old Christmas ornaments from the 1950s, groovy indeed!
