Free Pattern Friday – As You Wish

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday! Today, I thought we’d do something a little different.

In a shocking turn of events, today’s patterns are not paper pieced!

As you’re probably already aware, in addition to living it up here on Sewhooked, I also run Fandom in Stitches, a fandom quilting website.

One of the best parts of Fandom in Stitches are the awesome quilt-alongs that we host there!

What makes a quilt along different from the multitude of individual patterns we share is that an event includes not only the blocks to make the quilt but also instructions for putting the quilt together, what I think of as the “final layout.”

As You Wish: A Princess Bride Quilt & Stitch Along took place on Fandom in Stitches in 2014. We had lots of amazing designers contributing patterns to hand stitch and paper piece.

As You Wish had two final options, both designed by yours truly.

Both quilt patterns can be used with any 7″ (7 1/2″ blocks). You can even fussy cut a fun fabric or use pre-printed fabric book pages.

Progress! #AsYouWish #princessbride #fandominstitches

This is my own quilt top was made using the Four Patch pattern. After a couple of false starts, it is officially the next of my UFOs in line for me to quilt (hence the not-so-fabulous photo!). Thinking about quilting this is what inspired me to revisit these two layout patterns I created for As You Wish. 🙂

My Favorite Things Bonus Post – You Asked For It!

My Favorite Things. a Block of the Month by Jennifer Ofenstein

Since posting the very first My Favorite Things Block on Friday, I have had many, many requests to see our goal quilt and to have fabric totals for background, etc.

 

The instructions for this layout (all four versions in both 12″ & 6″) will be posted in December after all blocks are released.

These layouts are entirely optional and you are in no way obligated to use this design to create your quilt. This is here for your convenience if you wish to choose fabric in advance.

Please note that this contains layout only (including block backgrounds, sashing, flying geese, additional solid blocks and cornerstones). You will need small amounts of additional fabric to create the items in each block.

I Want To Believe: An X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along coming 2016 on fandominstitches.com

First block posted today!

Classic Film

Classic Film

Whew.

What a relief that this pattern is finally created for your enjoyment!

Saturday Morning Monster Movies
Saturday Morning Monster Movies,

created with Monster Madness and Classic Film

When I first drafted this pattern back in 2008, it was strictly as a prop for my then-book. Once my contract was canceled, this piece sat in closet with the rest of the finished Magical Friends projects.

When I made the decision to literally bring them out of the closet and add the patterns I had worked so very hard on to my infant Sewhooked shop, showing off Saturday Morning Monster Movies garnered an immediate response. You wanted the layout pattern and you wanted it yesterday! Well, of course I couldn’t find my original notes anywhere. So, guess who drafted this pattern all over again, just for  you?

I am so excited that I can finally share the newly drafted, tested and altogether fun-to-make Classic Film pattern. I hope you have as much fun making it as I had drafting it…both times!

Classic Film was created specifically to display 5” (finished) quilt blocks, which is by far my favorite size block to design. All the Magical Friends are 5″ in their original size, as are most of the free patterns available on Sewhooked.

Classic Film is available for only $6 from the Sewhooked Shop as an instant PDF download with PayPal payment – completely secure shopping through E-junkie! If you feel more comfortable shopping through e-junking, you can go straight to my storefront there.

Use your favorite paper pieced patterns, applique or fussy cut to create a striking film layout to show off your favorite blocks!

Finished size – 12″ x 31″
Techniques – Traditional and Strip Piecing
