Free Hand Quilting Pattern

“One Stitch at a Time”

Want to create a beautiful design with a free hand quilting pattern?

We thought so.  That’s why we’ve pulled another design out of our glorious bag of tricks.

On this page you will find the free pattern and all the suggested steps to complete it.


This pattern can be used to quilt all over your quilt or just in the precise locations that you desire.


Think Oreo

First you must have your quilting cookie assembled, before you start the quilting stitches.

We know you will want to use this pattern again and again.  That is why it is best to print it out and make your own hand quilting template with a stencil.  We describe how to make it here.

Just adjust the image to the size or sizes you desire before printing it out.  If you would like to use several sizes, put the image into a word program on your computer. 

This allows you to make the images as many times as you’d like in the sizes you want.  You can even put them all on one page to save paper. ;)

When you have completed the sizing task, it’s time to move on to the nitty gritty.

Align your template to where you want your design to be.

Mark the template image using your favorite method.  This could be fabric markers, pencils, quilt pounce, etc.

We prefer the quilt pounce pad with chalk because of how simple and fast it is.  Also, you are less likely to have the stencil move on you when you’re using it. 

There is nothing worse than using a pen or pencil when the stencil shifts on you.  We’ve all be there.  It’s not pretty and it can be very frustrating.

Just be sure to mark out one section with the pounce and quilt, before you mark the next.  This will make sure that the marks are always visible. ;)

Now that the image of the pattern has been transferred to your quilt top in the section you are working, place your quilting stitches along the lines.

Then move on to the next section, then the next, and so on until all of the quilting on your top is completed.

When your quilt is quilted, bind the edges with your chosen method, and add your label.

Congratulations!  Your quilt is complete.

Wrap Up

We hope you enjoy working with this free hand quilting pattern.  Doing so, your works of art will be masterpieces.

Until next time.

Happy quilting,
