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.

Hello, boys!

Monster Madness!

While working on another project this morning, I needed to delve into one of my many sample boxes.

The gents from Monster Madness were on top and I could not resist getting them out for an impromptu photo!

Originally intended for a book that I wrote in 2008 – 2009, these handsome fellas are available as the Monster Madness set or as individual patterns on Craftsy!
