Rainbow Cascade – Nudge for Set 3

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

Rainbow Cascade is the single 10″ paper pieced block you see above, made in a literal rainbow of colors, all put together to create one stunning quilt!

The free pattern includes complete paper pieced patterns in shaded & unshaded versions, 1″ scale for proper printing, suggested cutting instructions to make piecing (and chain piecing!) easier, Coloring Pages for all quilt sizes, fabric amounts needed, and printing permission in case you’d like to print at a copy shop.

Need to learn to paper piece? I can help with that!

On the second and fourth Mondays of each month through April, I’ll be sharing a nudge and letting you know which blocks to make next.

To make this as easy as possible, and to not tie you down to a single quilt along (because we all know that never works!),  you will never need to make more than four blocks in a two-week period.

I highly recommend using an Add-A Quarter-Ruler during paper piecing to minimize bulk AND to press seams open when piecing paper pieced sections together. You’ll find more instructions in the pattern document.

Free Pattern Friday – Nellie Narwhal

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today, we delve back into the Sewhooked Suggestion Box!

This one comes from Kristel, who you may know from Talk to Me Tuesday. You can also find her on Instagram as @clumsykristel.

Kristel requested a Narwhal to paper piece.  She also tested this fun pattern for me!

A narwhal is basically a unicorn whale. I know!! It’s absolutely real and very unusual looking. I couldn’t resist making it just a little cutesy!

Nellie Narwhal (named with the help of my daughter) is available to paper piece in 5″ and 10″. There are two versions of the 5″ pattern, one with embroidered face and one with paper pieced face. Make whichever size and version will work best for you!

Free Pattern Friday – Descent

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

Today, I’m pleased to be sharing a pattern that started out as a bit of a doodle during the planning stage of Rainbow Cascade.

Descent is a 10″ pattern to paper piece. It looks much more difficult than it really is. I hope you’ll give it a try!

de·scent
dəˈsent/Submit
noun
1.
an action of moving downward, dropping, or falling.

Rainbow Cascade – Nudge 2

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

We’ve passed the two-week mark and it’s time for our next prompt.

But first, some housekeeping:

After numerous requests, I’ve decided to make some small updates to the Rainbow Cascade instructions in order for it to be in true ROYGBIV order.

This change will only affect you if you’re making a Rainbow Cascade in the 30″ x 40″ OR 40″ x 50″. For these two sizes, the amount of Orange and Yellow blocks needed will be reversed. 3 Yellow & 2 Orange for both quilt sizes.

If you’re making ANY other quilt size, the ONLY change will be the block order when piecing the quilt top, not the number of blocks you make.

If you finished your first set of blocks, alternative instructions will be noted in the chart below in parenthesis. If you are at all confused, please let me know and I’ll be happy to help.

I am truly sorry for the change. I had planned to leave the order red>yellow>orange, but it was causing confusion, and I didn’t want that at all.

Pattern pages updated:

  • Blocks Needed Per Quilt Based On Size (pg 7)
  • Block Schedule for Quilting Along (pg 8)
  • Block Color Order Per Quilt Size (pg 9)

Rainbow Cascade is the single 10″ paper pieced block you see above, made in a literal rainbow of colors, all put together to create one stunning quilt!

The free pattern includes complete paper pieced patterns in shaded & unshaded versions, 1″ scale for proper printing, suggested cutting instructions to make piecing (and chain piecing!) easier, Coloring Pages for all quilt sizes, fabric amounts needed, and printing permission in case you’d like to print at a copy shop.

Free Pattern Friday – Fall Placemat Projects

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

I often share optional quilt layouts and other suggestions with blocks for inspiration.

For this’s week’s freebie, I jumped in my TARDIS and I traveled in time to a few years ago when I shared the following ideas, as ideas only, for a blog hop.

These fun fall themed placemats are now together in one complete pattern! Pattern document includes project instructions, 2 different pumpkin patterns, maple leaf pattern,  paper pieced nine patch (because it’s way easier than cutting out 2 3/16″ squares!), and layout charts for both projects.

Enjoy, and don’t forget to share your photos with the Sewhooked Facebook Group!
