Paper Piecing Vintage Correction

for-me

Hello, friends! I have updated a minor sizing error in Paper Piecing Vintage. The August bonus block, Spin with Me, was slightly off scale and printed a little bit too big. I have also added a 12″ version of the same pattern for anyone that would like to use it as a substitute. No other patterns were changed.

If you purchased your pattern from Craftsy, you should receive a pattern update notification within the next day or two that a new download is available. If you purchased from Etsy, you can redownload the file under the drop-down menu on the right that says You – Purchases/Reviews.

If you won a free copy of the pattern, please forward the winning email to sewhooked@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to send you an update.

I am very sorry if this caused you any inconvenience.

Paper Piecing Vintage: April

Paper Piecing Vintage - April

Welcome April and today’s pattern, Rambling Maid …and that’s no joke!

Rambling Maid is inspired by the classic quilt block Old Maid’s Ramble.

This is a young, updated and entirely paper pieced version and I don’t thinks she’s too worried about matrimony, hence, Rambling Maid!

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

  • Big background triangles = 2 – 6″ squares, cut in half on the diagonal (makes 4 triangles)
  • Outside corners = 2 – 5″ squares, cut in half on the diagonal (makes 4 triangles)
  • Center = 3 1/2″ square
  • Flying Geese = 10 – 3″ squares, cut in half on the diagonal (makes 20 triangles)
  • Flying Geese bodies = 2 of each color: 2 – 4 1/2″ squares, cut in half on the diagonal (makes 8 triangles, 4 in each color)
  • Have fun!

Rose!
For those of you anxiously awaiting the name of our newest furry family member, I’d like to introduce Rose! Her name is inspired by four of our family’s favorite fandoms: The Lord of the Rings (Samwise’s wife, Rose Cotton), Harry Potter (Rose Weasley), Doctor Who (Rose Tyler), and Homestuck (Rose Lalonde). We’ve pretty much covered all bases for all two-legged family members! Also, and most importantly, she just looks like a Rose. 🙂
See you tomorrow with Paper Piecing Vintage: April!
