Splitting Squares!

After a couple of months of working away my first pattern is ready!

Splitting Squares is the perfect pattern for beginner quilters.

I wanted to take some of the skills I teach in my patchwork classes and put them into a pattern so people who can't make my classes would be able to learn the skills in the comfort of their own sewing room.

The design is simple, but beautiful and gives you a perfect baby/toddler quilt.

The pattern has in depth cutting and piecing instructions to help complete beginners to learn how to piece patchwork confidently.

The finished quilt size is 42" by 42".

I couldn't have made this pattern without the help of 4 lovely pattern testers: Lisa, Emma, Sarah and Sherry. They found the mistakes, suggested great additions and gave me a beginners perspective on the pattern. They made awesome quilts with the pattern, which I am going to show you tomorrow. Thank you so much guys!

You can grab a copy over at my Etsy shop.

To celebrate the launch of the pattern I am giving away 2 copies of the pattern!.

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me which fabric you would use to make the quilt. Simples!

The giveaway will finish on Sunday 4th August at 12pm GMT.


  1. Congratulations on your new pattern. I'm trying to use my stash rather than buy new things right now but I have some lovely bright yellows, blues & reds from various lines so think I'd go with those.

  2. Congratulations on the release of your first pattern Anna!
    I think this would be perfect in Ruby - one of my all time favourites!

  3. I would love to make this in some happy go lucky

  4. Wow - what a great first pattern. I was lucky to win a bundle of Libery Fat Eighths at FQR which I think would be ideal for this pattern.

  6. This pattern looks lovely! Would be ideal for me, as I'm a beginner. I have just got some gorgeous Rain fabrics in lovely pink, aqua & purple shades which would look fantastic in this.

  7. I have some Moda Coquette which would be lovely in this pattern.
