...that there are LOTS of free patterns available out there? I was just browsing around on the Windham Fabrics website, and they have dozens and dozens available for download. Go here: http://www.windhamfabrics.net/ and look under "Free Projects." Many other companies do this, too.
Another of my favorite "places" is Moda Bake Shop. Check it out! http://www.modabakeshop.com/
Just had to share... ;)
