Crow and Pomegranate Applique Pattern


I was asked if I could post the pattern for the Crow and Pomegranate mini quilt I made last weekend. Since I don't know how to make a PDF, I thought I would just scan the pattern and see if it works. Here goes!!

If you click on the image, then click on "File" you should have the option to "Print Preview", make sure it fills the full page - you might have to adjust the scale (it worked for me when I decreased the margins to "0" and made it 150%), then print.



The center stem is a 1/2" finished bias and the stems on the side are 3/4" finished bias. The little circles are the size of a traced penny.
I used freezer paper applique method to make the mini quilt (my tutorial).


The background is a 14" x 9" rectangle (square to 13½" x 8½" after appliqueing), the borders are 3½" wide, and the corner blocks are 3½" squares.

*Update* - I assume prior applique knowledge for this pattern. I will post another appliqued mini quilt tutorial with more detailed instructions and pictures soon.

If any one can tell me how to make a PDF that would be much appreciated! I would love to add some applique patterns to the Thread Head Quilt Along quilt, and I think it would be very useful for people wanting to print out patterns for the quilt along.

Tonight's sunset

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

If you figure out how, will you post it as a tutorial. I'd like to know how to make a pdf too!

I love your pattern! Maybe you'll start making a bunch of pdf patterns soon!

I need help in all aspects of your post today. PDF? How do you do that? Applique, I'm not sure how to do this, how do you do this, make the quilt first then place on the applique? How does it stick and then do you have to sew around it by hand? Help, please. I'm a new quilter. One thing I do know though, is that the sunset is the most beautiful thing. It's my favorite time of the day!

Hi Joanne! You need Adobe Acrobat (the program, not just the reader) to make PDF files. It is a little pricey so you could also try putting "create a PDF file" into Google and a number of alternative sources for creating the files will come up. I have not tried any of these but perhaps some of your readers have.

Hi Joanne - For PDFs on Windows take a look at Foxit PDF Creator. If you use a Mac you can create a PDF from the Print Menu: Look for the PDF button on the lower left corner of the Print window. Hope that helps!

I use a program called PrimoPDF for making PDF files. It's a free download and comes up in your printer list when you go to print a document.

Just found the pattern and will make it as a love-gift for an ill friend.

IF you have Office (or MS Word) 2007 or newer, you can save a Word doc as a PDF file. Just do "save as" and select PDF from the dropdown menu.

Oh this is too adorable!!! thank you~! I make pdf's all the time - I scan in my pattern, copy and paste it to a word document, then click and drag it to my pdf program [primo pdf, it's a free download]. It automatically converts. You need adobe to read it, but not to create it! If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

I obtain PDF when I save a document or draw or photos in Word. I use in Word "save as" and here the system give me several options and one of them is PDF.
I hope I have helped you.
