I have just finished writing up a new pattern. It is a foundation paper piecing pattern based on a traditional patchwork star.
The pattern is beginner-friendly.
Yes, there are many pieces, but they can be pieced with strips, squares and squares cut in half.
There are TWO variations of this pattern. The first one has a centre like an economy block, while the second has a courthouse step block as its centre.
I would love it if some of you could test the pattern. As that means I am asking you to invest time and fabric for this testing, I will be giving each of you 4 of my (single) digital patterns as a thank you. You can see my other patterns here on my blog. Information on the pattern: foundation paper piecing technique. beginner-friendly. 10″ and 12″ patterns. 2 variations for the centre of each star. bonus 6″ block. quilt lay-outs provided coloring pages provided color suggestions provided It took me about 3 hours to piece a 12″ block. I am looking for testers who: can test a block and provide feedback within 2 weeks time. have at least a little experience with the foundation paper piecing technique. send me a good quality photograph of the block they have pieced. I would love it if the testers show their blocks their blog, on Instagram or Facebook. Testers can expect that: I will use your feedback to improve the pattern. I will send each of you 4 of my single patterns, of your choice, as a thank you for testing October Sky. I will send the chosen patterns after I have received your feedback and photograph. I will show your photos on my blog and link back to your blog, Instagram account or Facebook page. Lets see what beautiful blocks you can come up with! Who wants to help?
THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH! I HAVE FOUND A LOVELY GROUP OFF QUILTERS TO TEST THIS PATTERN!
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP IN THE FUTURE WITH ANOTHER PATTERN, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT OR WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT REQUEST IS POSTED ON THIS BLOG.
p.s. Lynn, yes the first block is one that I made for you!
