Frogger Pixel Quilt

 

Today is Make it Mosaic over on Fandom In Stitches. There was HUGE excitement when I first posted the Challenge, but it we only had a tiny turn out. Even so, the entries received were super cute and I appreciate each one!

Most of the time when we have a Challenge or Event on FiS, I’m the organizer. I still like to participate even though it would be silly to award myself, so if there are enough minutes to squeeze out of the day, I’ll whip something up to share.

Frogger Pixel QuiltWith that in mind, I created this fun Frogger design! I didn’t play video games much as a kid, but when I did, I tended to play Frogger. My game abilities are limited, as was my pocket money as a kid, so I focused every quarter on the same game in the hopes that I would improve and not completely waste the dollar bills I had to spend at the Putt Putt!

Also, Frogger is just cute.

Frogger Pixel Quilt
Frogger (free pattern!)
12 x 12 Grid
24″ as shown
Made from 2 1/2″ squares. You can adapt it to your own needs by increasing or decreasing the patch sizes.
There is also a possibility that I spent a bit of time getting splatted by cars as I tried to safely navigate my frog across the road. It was research, I swear it was research! Play Frogger for free here.

Paper Piecing Vintage: November

November 1, 2014

Paper PIecing Vintage - November 2014

November, November! How did you get here so fast?

It’s hard to believe, but this is the next-to-last installment of Paper Piecing Vintage! The December update will include not only the final pattern, but the finishing instructions to turn each size block into a quilt (see the layout below).

Today we have Vestibule, a vintage inspired block. I really love this one, partially because it looks complicated, but it really isn’t!

As with all the blocks from PPVVestibule is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.

  • For the 12″ block, you’ll need the following:
    • 4 – 4 3/4″ squares (background)
    • 8 – 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ rectangles (background)
    • 4 – 2 3/4″ squares (star centers)
    • 16 – 2 3/4″ squares sub-cut into 32 triangles (star points)
  • For the 6″ block, you’ll need the following:
    • 4 – 2 3/4″ squares (background)
    • 8 – 1 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ rectangles (background)
    • 4 – 1 3/4″ squares (star centers)
