Garden Party Blog Hop – Day 28: It’s My Birthday!

Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 28 of Sewhooked’s Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop!

Hey, ho, it’s my birthday!

This is a post full of PARTY and PRESENTS for both you and me, so make sure you read all the way to the end!

What to get the girl that has everything.

It’s been quite a birthday month for me, what with the amazing-ness of the Garden Party, being part of the Ties That Bind Blog Tour (giveaways and coupons, oh my!) and Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks and the 100 Blocks Blog Tour both on the way!

TODAY, my original quilt The Project of Doom, is on display at the Pflugerville Area Quilt Show hosted by Hennig House Quilts! If you are in the Austin area, please stop by for this super fun outdoor, non-juried show!

Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol 5 will be available for sale on May 8. Please support your local quilt shops and go pick up a copy! You can find me on pages 22 and 31!

If you will be in the Austin area on May 12, please stop by Honey Bee Quilt Store to see me! More information on that right here.

And now…what you came for…Garden Party!

My block, Perennial Pleasures, is a reminder to myself to take a few minutes to sit and do nothing, something a dear friend of mine has reminded me on occasion that it is OK to do! We’ve broken out the wine, the table is decorated and the sky is lovely and blue, how relaxing!

For those non-wine lovers out there, I’ve included alternate pattern pieces for a sweet butterfly.

Directions for both layouts (wine and butterfly) are included in the free pattern.

Yes, you heard that right.

Ready To Play!


Ready To Play - Nick
Ready To Play - Dean Ready To Play - Alex
Nick, Dean, Alex

Just to clear the air, this is not the big secret. That’s coming soon…but not today!

Since I first shared All Dolled Up back in January, Ready to Play! has been on my mind.

If I was going to make little girl dresses, obviously I needed some boy clothes, too!

Meet Nick, Dean and Alex, named, slyly, after three of my favorite people. They know who they are.😉

Ready to Play 6 x 6 versions

Here’s how it works?

There are three paper pieced patterns in two sizes each:

  • 3 – 6″x6″ (6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ unfinished) patterns
  • 3 – 9″x9″ (9 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ unfinished) patterns

Like Julia, Catherine and Amber from All Dolled Up, the patterns from Ready To Play! not only come in two sizes (6″ x 6″ and 6″ x 9″) but the tops and bottoms are interchangeable. That makes 18 total outfit variations all in one pattern set!

Ready To Play patterns are interchangeable!

This super fun, super simple pattern set is available right now as an instant download PDF right now through The Sewhooked Shop, powered by e-junkie, for safe and secure PayPal payments.

This pattern is also available on Craftsy!

Ready To Play 6 x 9 versions

Now I have the urge to shout, “But wait! There’s more!”

Not only can you swap Ready To Play! patterns with each other,  you can also swap them with All Dolled Up for even more pattern combinations…how fun is that?!

Mix and match All Dolled Up & Ready To Play!

I’ve had a blast creating these tiny outfits, and I hope you enjoy them, too!

Selling my patterns is what enables me to keep Sewhooked and Fandom In Stitches running, as well as allowing me to be a full-time crafter/quilter, something I’d very much like to continue doing.  Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and support of my work!

Reminder: Use coupon code QUILTMYPHONE in the Sewhooked Shop to receive the Floating Mariner instant download PDF pattern for half price as an instant PDF download with PayPal payment – completely secure shopping through E-junkie.  This price is only good right here on Sewhooked during the month of February.

Shop Sewhooked and help keep the free pattern page free! (Craftsy Shop)

Add your Sewhooked-related photos to my flickr group and you might be featured in a future post!

Happy Stitching!
