Dress Me Up banner for Fat Quarterly

Fat Quarterly is back on sale after the new year EU Vat changes that rather scuppered many PDF pattern sellers.  Payhip has been a great solution for many sellers including Sew-ichigo- it has been totally hassle free for us!  The latest issue (Number 20)  is Paper Piecing and I designed the 'Dress Me Up Banner'.  You can see a preview of the issue here.

It's a collection of simple, clothing themed, foundation paper-pieced patterns.  I designed these to keep the number of different sections needed to the absolute minimum.  All the fabrics are Suzuko Koseiki prints, kindly supplied by lovely Becca of Sew Me a Song and she has a bundle featuring all the prints in her shop with a fat eighth and a fat quarter option or you can find individual prints here.

Although the pattern is for a banner, the individual blocks could be used for quilts, mini quilts, pillows, small projects- the usual quilty stuff!
The finished banner is 8" x 120", I have mine across one wall of my sewing room.  It was a tricky beast to photograph!

Find the issue at Fat Quarterly.  There are lots of other projects inside including a very sweet house themed sewing machine cover and a stunning atomic inspired 'Beam me Up' quilt.
