Marcia Hohn has one of the most exquisite quilting sites I have found. The Quilter’s Cache has got to have one of the prolific pattern lists on the web. All have easy to understand pattern pages and color picture instructions. The block patterns can be reached by alphabetized lists or by block size with the choice made here. This is one of my favorites called Quotes and Notes. I can see it done with signatures of family members embroidered in the center each block.
As with all my links to sites, please read the conditions for use of these free patterns and respect the creative endeavors of these wonderful people who put these labors of love online to share with all of us.
