Inspired by my round up of hand patterns a few weeks ago, I have officially checked a pattern off of the list of things I want to create: a hand making a peace sign.

I hope you enjoy this free 10″ paper pieced pattern designed using my very own left hand for inspiration. Tested for you by Amanda, @muchoxoxo on Instagram.

Soggy Saturday Surprises

Peace, Love, Pi

I woke up this morning to find Peace, Love, Pi featured on Geek Crafts! With March 14 (3-14, get it?!) just around the corner, Peace, Love, Pi makes a perfect project for “Pi Day.”

Check out the Geek Crafts post here.

It’s bucketing down rain today in Austin, which is good news for us as we slowly climb out of severe drought. I’m hoping for a green spring and NO fires.

The rainy day has put our Saturday plans on the back burner. Instead, I’m going to spend my day cleaning and rearranging my sewing space. It’s time to purge things I don’t foresee myself using and tidy up those things I need easy access, too.

My cutting table is also a wibbly wobbly mess and I’m planning to swap it out with another table that will be re-purposed from another area of our house. Fingers crossed that it goes well and I’ll be back to stitching in a couple of days!

Stellar Stripes, quilted

Carol, the winner of the free PDF pattern from my Learning Center post earlier in the week, chose Stellar Stripes as her prize. Carol, I hope you enjoy and can’t wait to see your version!

Peace, Love, Pi

Peace, Love, Pi

During the craziness that was getting sewhooked.org and blog.sewooked.org consolidated into the Shiny New sewhooked.com, one of my newest designs, Peace, Love, Pi, slipped through the cracks of blog posting.

This spiffy new design was created to entertain my husband and son, both who love math and have great senses of humor. They love the design and once it’s quilted, it will quite possibly end up hanging in my husband’s office where he does magical things with computers all day long.


9 1/2″ X 21 1/2″

Includes 3 original

paper pieced patterns

plus sashing instructions.

One of the best parts about this pattern is it’s construction. It’s super simple, with 5″ (5.5″ unfinished) paper pieced patterns and simple sashing.

Not into math but love the “Peace, Love” part of the pattern? Replace the bottom block with any 5″ square of your choice and create a statement about what you love!

How about….
