It’s There and Back Again (TABABOM) new pattern day over on Fandom In Stitches, my website dedicated to free fandom patterns designed by fans, for fans!
This is month 5 of TABABOM, and my first appearance as a designer in this year-long project.
My pattern for this month is The Bridge To Rivendell, inspired by a combination of the bridge described in The Hobbit and the Rivendell bridges shown in the movie version of The Lord of the Rings.
I have worked with designers Michelle Thompson, Lilja Björk Sigurdórsdóttir and Schenley Pilgram to create a block of the month that will journey with Bilbo on his adventure There and Back Again.
I wanted to really try something new with this project and am piecing all of my blocks using Northcott’s Stonehenge fabrics in order to create a stone mural-esque quilt. My thought was that I wanted my quilt to look like a piece of art created by Tolkien’s dwarves.
My blocks so far
Block title and Designers:
(L-R) 1. Gandalf (Schenley), 2. The Cloaks at Bilbo’s House (Michelle), 3. The Road (Lilja),
4. Sting (Michelle), 5. The Bridge to Rivendell (Jennifer)
If you are a fan of any variety, I encourage you to follow Fandom In Stitches. In addition to our current block of the month, we post free patterns regulary, have occasional challenges and giveaways. It’s such a fun site to be part of because, after all, we are all fans of something!
Add your Sewhooked-related photos (that includes my patterns posted to Fandom In Stitches!) to my flickr group and you might be featured in a future post! FiS also has a flickr group, packed with lots of great photos!
