Vintage Skier Pattern
I am happy to announce that I completed a new paper pieced pattern that is now available in my Etsy shop! This PDF pattern is called "Vintage Skier." It is my original design based on imagery found in vintage ski posters. The finished block measures 10.5" x 14.5."
Pattern includes a numbered, colored diagram as well as mirror image pattern pieces, ready for foundation piecing. There are also a few helpful hints. Basic paper piecing directions are not included. This pattern is for the intermediate paper piecer. It does not have any Y seams or curves but there are many small pieces and seams to be matched.
The fabrics in the block as it appears on the cover are Basic Grey Grunge prints, Kona Navy, Kona Pale Flesh, and Kona Ash.
I first created the design in November when I made the block above for a bee. It took me so long to refine my design and to piece it that I had to set the project aside for awhile after finishing it. Once we had enough time apart, I tackled the pattern making.
I am looking forward to seeing your finished blocks! If you make one, I'd love it if you'd add it to the During Quiet Time Flickr group.
