PPV 2017 Quilt Along Block 3

Posts on this blog post contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support. ♥

2017 quilt along.jpg

Welcome back to our Paper Piecing Vintage Quilt Along (#PPV2017)!

A little explanation::

PPV was my 2014 Block of the Month. This project was inspired by old-fashioned, hand-pieced quilt blocks. Because I LOVE paper piecing, I couldn’t help but create my own versions of traditional patterns I love using my favorite technique.

Quilting along with us is easy! The Paper Piecing Vintage quilt pattern already exists, so you don’t have to anxiously await each pattern to be released.

We’re making this quilt together, one block at a time, as a group. We’ll be making two blocks a month. I’ll prompt you on the second and fourth Monday to remind you which block to work on next. With a little work and a little luck, we’ll have a finished quilt top by the end of June!

Get the completed quilt pattern (more info below) from CRAFTSY or ETSY for $10 (previously $12). If you already own this pattern, you are ready to go!

You’ve asked, and it’s happening…if you want to make just one or two blocks from the set, I am releasing these patterns individually as we go. (Link to purchase Block 3 below.)

The following is the March 2014 block (Block 3 for us) made for my 1930’s vintage fabric-inspired version of this quilt (above).

Today’s pattern, Block 3 (March 2014), is Ice Cream Bowl. You can find it beginning on page 10 in Paper Piecing Vintage, or you can purchase JUST this block pattern here.

We also have a bonus block this week, which is a larger scale version of the same Ice Cream Bowl (see my Halloween block!).

All patterns for PPV are 6″ & 12″ (w/o seam allowance). The size you make is up to you.

The vintage version (above) is from my 2014 PPV.

My 2017 PPV Halloween Quilt Block

Since I wanted to be able to see the toads in the Halloween fabric I was using, I opted for the 6″ bonus block pattern on page 15 enlarged to 12″ using Adobe Reader. The bonus block is also included here for those of you that just want this one pattern. I was working with a scrap of fabric and was just a tiny bit short, so I supplemented with a similar tonal purple for the last round. I’m quite pleased with the result!

for me.JPG

This is my color inspiration, created in EQ (subject to change as I quilt along!).

Since I’m using a lot of Halloween scraps, I’m also cutting the piano keys as I go from the leftover fabrics from each block. It will be a huge time saver at the end!

If you’d like to do a little planning, too, there is a coloring page included in the complete pattern on page 64.

My 2017 PPV Halloween quilt block.

This week’s block includes some Halloween scraps I’ve saved for ages! If you look closely at the green fabric, you’ll see that there are witch’s undergarments in there. Do I love this version of Come Fly Away? YES I DO!

The following is the January block (Block 1) made for my 1930’s vintage fabric-inspired version of this quilt (above). I used reproduction vintage fabrics on a solid white background. It was a lot of fun to make and this is still one of my favorite quilts!

Since I’d done a vintage version, this year I wanted to do something a little different…

block-1

My 2017 PPV quilt will be Halloween themed!

I’m more than a little excited about this! I’ve been collecting Halloween bits and pieces for years and had planned to start a Halloween quilt in 2016. To make a very long story short, I had surgery last year and it pushed the Halloween quilt right off the To Do list. I already knew I wanted to revisit PPV this year (lots of you have asked for it!), so it only made sense to combine the two projects and create a fun, whimsical version for my Halloween-loving self!

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. 🙂

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.
