so here it is...


I stumbled across this site a couple of days ago.. She has an Etsy shop and sells PDF patterns for paper piecing blocks. She also has a couple of full quilt patterns and on her website she has some free patterns.. This is one of her free patterns. As soon as I saw it I wanted to drop everything and ran to the sewing room. I was really hoping I would find one of those Kona charm packs on the shelf... hmm.... guess I would have had to order one..
So my second choice was a baggy full of red charms. hmm... not quite right either.
I found all these polka dots... did I say I really wanted to do this? Yea, so much so that I cut a 4 inch square out of each yard of polka dot.

I love the circular quilting... I used a splatter lid for the pattern... lol :- )

I would love to do 4 of these for a baby quilt... anyone pregnant?

Maybe I will look for that charm pack in Paducah... I need to make a list..

edit - check the size of the paper piece block after printing. Mine printed slightly off square. I am sure there must be a secret and I will check her printing hints before I do a baby quilt...

ps edit - Here is where I found the inspiration for the quilting..

On another website you were wondering about the software used to create designs and print on fabric that was used on PR. I believe it's called "QImage". Google it. The digital printing group on Yahoo disclosed it.

Love this!! Well done. I just now got to your blog. I will have to give this a try. See you Tuesday.

Have a super great day.

Hi Nancy, You did such a lovely job with my block! :-) Thanks for letting me know about it - it's such fun to see what other quilters do with my designs.

I'm not sure about the off-square printing of the block - this is the first time I ever heard of this particular problem. It might be a problem with your printer (the paper-feed rollers or something like that). I also have this pattern as a PDF - contact me again for that, and you can compare your results of printing that.

cheers!
