Tuscan Cuddle® Quilt Tutorial (& Free Pattern)

Written by Ellen Mickelson | Sep 22, 2014 1:00:44 PM

This week's Sew Together Tuesday video tutorial series tackles what has quietly (but not surprisingly) become one of our most popular free patterns, the Tuscan Cuddle® Quilt! Our National Educator Teresa Coates will share her tips for sewing the quilt LIVE on the Shannon Fabrics Facebook page, and she's also given the free pattern a bit of a much-needed refresh.

The Tuscan Cuddle® Quilt (finishes 41” x 53”) is based on the Tuscan Sun quilt pattern from Villa Rosa patterns (designed for quilting cottons) and with permission we revised it to work for Cuddle® minky fabric. It was first designed for our original Cuddle® precuts (now discontinued), so we're excited to announce our new Cuddle® Cuts relaunch that are currently in stores!
