These free patterns were inspired by quilt patterns. Some are close adaptations of traditional patterns and others are merely reminiscent. Stitch the designs for your favorite quilter, or make your own quilt with floss instead of fabric.

Thanks to Janet Wickell, About.com Guide to Quilting for the use of her quilt block patterns for inspiration and adaptation.

There's just something soothing about the combination of browns and blues. This pattern reminded me of an applique quilt. It is not based on a specific quilt pattern.

Good Neighbors Cross Stitch Pattern

Having a good neighbor is a wonderful thing. When I was growing up, we had some great neighbors. They were the kind that you could borrow a cup of sugar from. I was the oldest kid in the block, so I ended up babysitting a lot. I felt good that my neighbors trusted me. I think this is also why I decided not to have kids, but I digress.

My father suffered a long illness, and during the worst days, our neighbors were so supportive. They mowed the yard, cooked us treats, fed our pets, and kept out an eye on our place. That support and help was much appreciated and still warms my heart to this day.

This pattern was inspired by About.com Guide to Quilting Janet Wickell's House Quilt Block.
