Free Pattern Friday – As You Wish


Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday! Today, I thought we’d do something a little different.

In a shocking turn of events, today’s patterns are not paper pieced!

As you’re probably already aware, in addition to living it up here on Sewhooked, I also run Fandom in Stitches, a fandom quilting website.

One of the best parts of Fandom in Stitches are the awesome quilt-alongs that we host there!

What makes a quilt along different from the multitude of individual patterns we share is that an event includes not only the blocks to make the quilt but also instructions for putting the quilt together, what I think of as the “final layout.”

As You Wish: A Princess Bride Quilt & Stitch Along took place on Fandom in Stitches in 2014. We had lots of amazing designers contributing patterns to hand stitch and paper piece.

As You Wish had two final options, both designed by yours truly.

Both quilt patterns can be used with any 7″ (7 1/2″ blocks). You can even fussy cut a fun fabric or use pre-printed fabric book pages.

Progress! #AsYouWish #princessbride #fandominstitches

This is my own quilt top was made using the Four Patch pattern. After a couple of false starts, it is officially the next of my UFOs in line for me to quilt (hence the not-so-fabulous photo!). Thinking about quilting this is what inspired me to revisit these two layout patterns I created for As You Wish. 🙂

TTMT #302 – Retreat Cometh!

Paper Piecing Vintage with bonus pieced borders

REDUCED: Paper Piecing Vintage is now just $10 on Craftsy (previously $12).

That’s an entire block of the month, plus bonus blocks and layout instructions for just $10! 

I’ve decided to forgo Sewhooked Flicker Group giveaways for the time being. Participation has been low and I’ve had several prizes over the last year go unclaimed. I think instead, I will offer random drawings like I did for my 300th TTMT. Giveaways on Fandom In Stitches will continue as usual. 🙂

Piece with me! Paper Piecing Vintage BOM, $12 on Craftsy!

Busy Bee!

It’s been crazy cakes around my house this week!

My high schooler is back to school, doing what 16 year olds do and my college freshman hit the road and is now back in the dorm, ready for her second semester as a college woman. How did my kids get so grown up? This is a mystery I will never solve!

Paper Piecing Vintage has been amazing so far, with lots of beautiful blocks and fantastic participation in the facebook group.

And now it's a star again! #linusconnection
The crazy mistake I found during this week’s Talk To Me Tuesday has now been rectified. Whew! Now I just need backing fabric to finish up this little quilt of orphan blocks for The Linus Connection.

How I keep projects and events coordinated and on time: clip boards! I've had the one on the bottom for about 30 years. #oldschool
As You Wish, the Princess Bride quilt and stitch along that I’m organizing on behalf of Fandom In Stitches, starts next Wednesday and has been keeping me busy every minute in between!

Quilting is my job and my hobby, what can I say?!
