Rainbow Cascade – Let’s Get Started!

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along! I’ve been so excited to share and today is the day we begin!

 

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.
Fabric pull for #rainbowcascadeqal! We begin next Monday on #sewhooked. I'm working entirely from stash to make the 70" x 80" version. Will you be quilting along? Show us your #fabric! #quiltalong #qal #freepattern #sewhookedpattern #jenniferofenstein #ra

I’m making my personal Rainbow Cascade quilt as a stash-busting project. I’ll be talking about that more tomorrow on Talk to Me Tuesday!

Rainbow Cascade – Fabric Amounts

 

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Hello, friends!

Next week, we’ll begin our Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

Rainbow Cascade QAL coming to sewhooked.com September 2017!

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

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

ALL instructions, including fabric amounts below, will be included in the FREE original pattern to be released next Monday.

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

Fabric amounts are included for the following quilt sizes:

  • 30” x 40”
  • 40” x 50”
  • 50” x 60”
  • 60” x 70”
  • 70” x 80”

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. ♥

FABRIC NEEDED

Amounts are generous estimates, but paper piecing styles can differ.

I’ll be using this pattern as a stash buster and will be using a variety of different fabrics from my stash. Feel free to do the same!

PPV 2017 – Block 8

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)!

2017 Fat Quarter Lotto

 

Stop back by tomorrow for the 3rd Annual Fat Quarter Lotto Drawing,

to be shared “live” on Talk to Me Tuesday!

A reminder of how this works:

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!

Individual blocks now available by popular demand: 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 8 below.)

20141130_113839

The following is the August 2014 block (Block 8 for us) made for my 1930’s vintage fabric-inspired version of this quilt (above).

See a video about the original PPV!

08 august

Today’s pattern, Block 8 (August 2014), is Caught in the Web. You can find it beginning on page 37 in Paper Piecing Vintage, or you can purchase JUST this block pattern here.

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

Block 08 - Caught in the Web

I was lucky enough to have just enough of this fantastic orange spider print to make this block. The stripes were fussy cut to add a little more movement. I ♥ it!

Eight blocks in…we’re getting closer to the end!

Now is a great time to start cutting out those piano keys and 6″ blocks for cornerstones (optional, of course!).

Are you quilting along with Paper Piecing Vintage? Share a Signature Block for the PPV Signature Quilt! This special project is a for a commemorative signature quilt that I will keep after Paper Piecing Vintage has concluded. Find this block on page 21 of Paper Piecing Vintage. If you’re only making a few blocks, you can also find the Signature Block Pattern right here.

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.

Get the complete Paper Piecing Vintage pattern for $10 from…
