Hi, and welcome to Thistledown & Co. Thanks for stopping by to look at my quilt patterns and my other helpful quilting products. I also have some free download projects, some how-to's, and sewing tips, so browse around a bit and get inspired.
I design quilt patterns and sewing patterns to share my passion for stitching with you.  Some of my quilt patterns and projects are playful and whimsical, while others are more serious and sophisticated. Some stitch up in a jiffy and others take more time and effort. I hope you'll find just the right quilt pattern or sewing pattern for yourself.

You'll find quilt patterns of all types, including my popular paper doll quilt patterns, patterns for pieced quilts, string pieced quilt patterns, applique quilt patterns, wool stitching projects, bag patterns, a fun hot pad pattern, and you'll also find lots of other fun, useful, creative, and quilty things on my site! 

Besides my quilt patterns, There's also my very popular laminated quilting reference book and my super useful Whisperlite tracer foundation material. Read on......

Quilter's Q & A 
- answers to your most important quilting questions.
This handy book is compact, yet loaded with so much useful quilting knowledge. 
It has fully laminated pages to write on with dry erase markers.
It is an excellent quilt reference book with frequently used techniques, sizing, setting triangle formulas, decimal conversions, and so much more... right at your fingertips.
It continues to be a customer favorite and I'm happy to say it's back in stock ready to ship. You'll want to keep it in your sewing basket because of all the helpful important tips and essential quilt formulas. This link will take you right to the order page.

You'll also love
my versatile Whisperlite tracer foundation fabric. It is a fantastic, ultra lightweight foundation for your quiltmaking.  Use it instead of a muslin foundation for string or foundation pieced quilts. It doesn't add bulk or heaviness to your string quilt and there is no need to remove it. Here's the link for Whisperlite

Think of all the time you'll save. Use Whisperlite instead of paper, for foundation piecing paper-pieced quilts. The Whisperlite foundation fabric will stabilize bias edges and no tearing out paper when you're done.
