FREE Quilt Pattern: Vintage Camping

Who loves a great free quilt pattern? I know I sure do! Right now I am going to deliver to you all a FREE beginner-friendly, accuquilt-friendly, throw size quilt pattern!

This pattern was designed specifically to showcase the Vintage Camping fabric collection by Crissy Rodda! I fell in love with the whimsical mountains, bears, campers, and deer in the prints, and truly wanted to feature them in a classic, traditional quilt design to match the vintage feel.

Have you seen the AccuQuilt fabric cutting system and wondered if you’d still be able to make the quilts from your favorite quilt pattern designers?

Now, I know not everyone has someone to ask for help, so I’m writing this post to share my learning experience with all of you!
