Welcome to Oh Kaye Quilting!

Hi there! My name is Kaye Collins and I am a quilt pattern designer and longarm educator.

My quilt patterns have a modern vibe and feature bright colors. I have some patterns with lots of negative space for quilting and others that provide ways to use those big “hero” fabrics that I can’t seem to leave at the fabric store. All my patterns are in PDF format so just in case you are impatient like me, you can download and get started right away. I truly hope you will use my patterns as a jumping off point to boost your own creativity. Please take a moment and browse The Shoppe to see if anything lights you up. I have been published in Love of Quilting and Quiltmaker.

I would not refer to myself as a prolific blogger but there are lots of hidden gems in my 3-4 years of posts. You may even find some free blocks lurking in The Blog. The 3 latest posts can always be found at the bottom of this page and if you go ALL the way to the bottom there is a search box that will help you find exactly what you need.

I am a longarm quilter who especially loves computerized quilting with Pro-Stitcher. Recently I have become much more enamored with rulers and FMQ. I am best known as a National Educator for Handi Quilter and I really enjoy teaching at shows and shops all over the country. I have taught at OSQE Atlanta, Maine Quilts and am looking forward to QuiltCon 2024 in Raleigh, NC. If you are mostly interested in longarm education, most of that is over on YouTube.

I send out a newsletter at the beginning of every month, so make sure you sign up so you don’t miss out on any of the fun.

Mountain Forest Block

This month’s Quilt Block Mania theme is “Forest.” A couple of years ago I made a tree block so I wanted to do something different this year. One of my favorite things to do in the winter is to drive up American Fork Canyon to Pine Hollow. When you are in the parking lot the…

Stand Mixer Quilt Block

Since I have had so much time to just sit around while I have been healing, I decided to participate in Quilt Block Mania. The theme for November 2023 is “Kitchen”. I have an image of all the blocks down at the bottom of the post and ALL of the kitchen blocks are FREE during…

Callithump Quilt Pattern

Do you love novelty and big print fabrics? I do! I buy them because I love them and then I get home and wonder, “What in the world can I do with this???” That was the case with this large bird fabric featuring owls and ravens and was the inspiration for this quilt pattern. If…

One of my most popular quilt patterns is Tri Again. This is a fun quilt pattern to make and it works up quite quickly. It looks beautiful quilted with an edge to edge design, but the diagonal negative spaces provide a great framework for adding some custom quilting.

Tri Again comes with instructions for five sizes and three versions: two-color, scrappy background, and scrappy accent. So. . . 15 patterns for the price of 1!
