Okay, so I sort of forgot to post here about my newest EPP pattern. I put it in my newsletter (sign up if you want to know about pattern releases before anyone else!), but it slipped my mind here. “Squared Off” is inspired by a traditional tile motif of square blocks rotated to an angle and offset with small squares. The design includes two basic shapes (a kite and a square) that are easy enough for beginners and complex enough for more seasoned stitchers to enjoy the challenge of creating intricate “fussy cut” designs.
The pattern includes a coloring page to test out your ideas, templates that can be re-sized depending on your chosen fabric, instructions for making a cutting template, and step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the pieces. Every step (or series of steps) includes a picture to help you see how it all comes together. I've also included a short list of resources to help you get started with English Paper Piecing (or to improve your technique). The final section of the pattern shows alternate design ideas that use the same layout, creating a new look through fabric selection and placement. It's really a thousand designs in one if you let your imagination take over.
I've done my utmost to make the pattern and instructions as comprehensive as possible, and I think you'll enjoy the process of making the "Squared Off" pattern your own. I look forward to seeing your projects. If you post something, be sure to use #SquaredOffPattern or tag me on Instagram (@carleybiblin) so I can see.
