ROSE

Paper Piecing Pattern


I have been having such a great time meeting so many wonderful seamstresses from around the world on Instagram. I decided to create a pattern and give it away to all you that enjoyed my post and wondered where you could possibly find or purchase a pattern such as this. *Scroll down for pattern download link.*


Here is how i came to this actual design for those who wonder how to create paperpieced patterns.  I got an image of a rose.  Now you can do this by hand (using a ruler and a pen) but I like using my computer programs so I decided to redraw the image in Corel Draw.


As you can see I changed few things and simplified the image. When you make this type of pattern, you always work your way from the outside in.

For this project I used the Ombre by V and Co.  Moda fabric collection. I think it works great for this type of project.  My background is Quilters Linen Screen print D#9864 Robert Kaufman fabrics. 

Here is the pattern file for you- ROSE PATTERN

There are 4 separate sections to this pattern.  When you piece them together, piece A and B sections first, then add C to AB section and D to AB section.


Have fun and let me know how your design went by tagging me on INSTAGRAM #jitkadesignrose

Thanks for stopping by and happy sewing :)

    1. Thank you Afton for pointing this out to me. It would have been nice if they asked permission to share my pattern on their site, but it does connect to my craftsy shop for download and in a way gives me more exposure, therefore I can't be upset. I am glad so many people love it. Have you made one? I just released a new strawberry pattern on craftsy that is pretty quick to make and super cute. https://www.craftsy.com/profile/jitka-design-inc
