Paper Piecing Vintage – December (and we’re done!)

Paper Piecing Vintage with bonus pieced borders

This is it!

The big one…the one we’ve all been waiting for!

It’s hard to believe, but we have reached the finale of Paper Piecing Vintage!

Today’s update includes not only the final pattern, but the finishing instructions to turn each size block into a quilt using either 6″ or 12″ block AND an optional surprise bonus not included in the original design, the beautiful pieced border you see above!

It has been my great joy and honor to share this very special vintage-inspired Block of the Month event with you all. Thank you for shopping small and supporting an independent designer like myself! Your patronage helps to keep me designing and sharing both free and for sale designs.

Amber's PPV
And before we move forward with this last big PPV post, monumental thanks go out to my very good friend and consummate pattern tester Amber Lowery for testing each month’s pattern so it could come to you every month error free! This stunning black, teal and purple quilt with optional pieced border is her finished version!

And now…the final block in this 12 month block of the month!

Paper Piecing Vintage December

Today we have Spinning Puzzle. It looks complicated, but it pieces like a four patch and is super duper easy!

As with all the blocks from PPV, Spinning Puzzle is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.

Paper Piecing Vintage: September

Paper Piecing Vintage: September

 

Hello, September!

We’re nearing the end! With this installment, there are only THREE more months to come in Paper Piecing Vintage!

Today, I share a very traditional design, Beggar’s Block. If you’ve ever pieced this block before, you will find the paper pieced version goes together a bit differently, and I hope, easy peasy to get all those points!

As with all the blocks from PPVBeggar’s Block is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.

Paper Piecing Vintage: September

Beggar’s Block by Jennifer Ofenstein (sewhooked.com)

Already registered? Download your updated BOM file now!

Save some time by following these bonus directions:

  • For both sizes, save time by cutting strips of fabric 1/2″ to 3/4″ wider than the template. You can then sub-cut pieces a little bit longer. For example: for the 12″ block, cut 2″ strips, sub-cut into 2″ x 5″.
  • Triangles can be sub cut from squares. For example: for the 12″ block, cut 16 – 2 3/4″ squares, sub-cut into half-square triangles (32 sqt).
  • Save time by chain piecing!
  • When piecing final pattern, line up the center square to get perfect points.
  • Have fun!

Paper Piecing Vintage Signature Block
Don’t forget to sent in your 6″ signature block for the Paper Piecing Vintage Signature Quilt! Lots of great blocks have already arrived…a bit thanks to everyone that has already sent in their block.
