New Pattern- Conversation Pieces

I’m so excited to share a new pattern with you today!  “Conversation Pieces” was one of my first ideas when I began this designing adventure.  It features the “jewel” or “star point” shape, and can be English paper pieced, or made with Inklingo if you’re fortunate enough to own the sold-out Shape Collection 1.  Of course, you could make it slightly larger with Shape Collection 3 as well.

I have to admit, I’d never touched the alphabet functions on my sewing machine before this project, but it certainly was a fun way to learn!  This little table runner finishes at 21.5 by 13 inches, so it goes together quickly.  If you’ve never attempted English paper piecing before, I’ve included thorough steps and diagrams to help you along the way.

Please ask for Conversation Pieces (available through The Pattern Peddlers, TCQ193) at your favorite local quilt store.  And be sure to check back on Friday for another new pattern!

Happy Stitching!

    • O…M…G… – I never thought of making those jewel shapes into hearts. I adore this pattern. Will paperpieces.com also carry this pattern?

        Thanks, Sarah! Unfortunately, Paper Pieces did not opt to carry this pattern when I approached them a couple of months ago. But if enough people asked about it, maybe we could change their mind? :-)

      It’s called a “Star Point” in that collection, aka “jewel” on the paper pieces website. I misread on the Inklingo site, it’s 1.5 inches the length of the shape, so it would actually make hearts smaller than shown on the pattern. Thank you, your comment made my morning!
