Trying something different…

Welcome to Paper Piecing Monday and something a little different… This weeks pattern is another 12 inch spinning pinwheel for my Do.Good.Stitches bee…

WQ simple pinwheel block

For this block I stayed with the red white and blue colour theme our Queen Bee set but when I was designing this block I thought it would be a great in rainbow colours too, so I played a little in my design program…

But that is not what is different…if you want to really see what has changed you need to download the free pattern… you see I have found that I can make PDF patterns in Word and so things look much prettier… check it out…Simple Pinwheel Block..

Let me know what you think.

  1. It looks good! And I like the new blog layout too!
    I’ve been looking at quite a lot of your patterns recently – I’m looking for nice but simple blocks for my block swap party, and I’m slowly getting better at paper piecing, so thank you for the patterns and the inspiration!

  2. I think your new pdf programming – however you did it – is awesome. How did you do that in Word? is there a secret?

    • I have been printing and scanning as it allows me to adjust and renumber (I find EQ’s numbering system not always perfect). I have not tried exporting an image out of EQ and into word… I will have to give it a try and see what happens.
