I mentioned last week I had designed a series of water pitcher blocks. You never know where inspiration will come from. I love the collection of pitchers my dining room. I spent all of last week perfecting this pattern, with the help of Amy/During Quiet Time, to make it much simpler to piece - but with all the detail and finesse of the first version I made.
I am happy to tell you that if you'd like to make a water pitcher of your own, the new paper pieced pattern is now available here in my Pattern Shop and on Craftsy. This is Water Pitcher #1. Watch for the other blocks in the series over the next few weeks!
Water Pitcher #1 is a PDF pattern. The finished block measures 12" square. The pattern includes written instructions, a diagram of the block, and mirror image pattern pieces. This pattern does not teach you how to paper piece. Water Pitcher #1 is an intermediate level pattern.
I enjoyed the aqua and white combination (Peacock Lane and Kona pfd) so much on the first block, I had a hard time deciding what fabrics to use on the pattern version of the block. You just can't go wrong with Denyse. I chose this Fiesta pink print from Hope Valley. I love that it almost feels lacey when used in this block.
Let me know if you make one, I'd love to see it!
