Paintscape - An English Paper Piecing Sewing Pattern

Finally, a new English paper piecing pattern. If you recognise it, it's because it's based on the 5am Life Wave piece I made in 2018, although I've adjusted the pattern pieces a little for this version to make them more user-friendly.  This pattern really provides a canvas for you to paint your own design onto - the small triangles allow you to throw in pops of colour, while the misshapen pieces running along the edge of each block give a fractured rain-on-windowpanes feel.  You can use as many blocks as you'd like to create your design, and the pattern comes complete with a colouring sheet where you can plan it all out, along with lots of tips and step-by-step construction illustrations. Here's a shot of my Paintscape, mid-progress, when I still had two rows still to make.  If you'd like to download a copy of the PDF sewing pattern, you can find it in my Etsy shop or you can download it from my PayHip shop.  If you make your own Paintscape, please do get in
