Welcome to Seams Like a Dream Quilt Designs!
Quilt Designs and Patterns by Kate Colleran
Our quilt patterns feature designs that are fun, fresh and incorporate traditional elements with a more modern flair. The patterns are clear and well written so those quilt dreamers can become quilters. Yes! you can make these quilts.
Three new patterns that have been tons of fun to work on.
Lighthouse Steps took me back to the seashore. It’s a fun little strip quilt design – I put mine together with the Bayshore Snack Pack by Paintbrush Studios.
Totally Tiered is a striking geometric design that lets you play with lights and darks to create a wonderful 3D effect. The pattern lists out fabrics from the Stonehenge Gradations line by Northcott.
And finally Sail Away – a cute, cute, (did I mention how cute it is?) kid’s quilt design using Northcott’s A Whale of a Time fabric.
Coming Soon – Are you starting to plan your holiday decorations?? I am, and created this crafty set of Christmas decorations. The Tannenbaum Trio designs include instructions for a card-holder wall hanging, table runner and place mats. It will be up on the website for sale soon, and ready to ship October 1.
More popular than ever! Braids and more braids. Table Scraps is a runner and placemat pattern with braid insets. Kate’s Braid Template is now available and shipping – it’s a very handy tool for consistent, accurate cutting and piecing of braids in your designs. Zig Zagnoli is a fun and versatile zigzag design – can be color organized or scrappy – and lets you have a lot of fun with your quilting design. The design concept is by Crystal Zagnoli of the Quilted Cricket, with directions and pattern by Kate.
Now in limited quantities and for a limited time, we have a few Kits available. These contain the project pattern and fabric for the whole quilt – the top, the binding and the back. One stop shopping! But there are only a few available, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Click our Kits icon to see what’s available today.
