Paper Pieced Bibs Pattern
I enjoy making quilts, bibs, embellishing onesies, etc. that get bundled into a gift basket and delivered, under the Operation Homefront program, to woman that deliver babies while their husbands are off fighting in a warzone.  I think these Paper Pieced Bibs will be a special touch in such a gift basket, as well as a baby gift for any situation you might want to give one.  Heck, even when the kids bring over the new grandbaby for a visit, it could be fun to send them home with a cute new quilted bib!

Pop on over to check out this free tutorial pattern at Connecting Threads, and while you are their, check out their other free patterns too!  They also have many other fun freebies, including quilt label artwork that I think could also be used to create clipart for blogs, greeting cards and more.

Do you belong to their free forum "Quilt With Us"?   They have many groups, including a group on Thread PaintingQuilts of Valor,   Longarm QuiltersEnglish Paper Piecing, and many more.
