Halloween Paper Pieced Blog Hop – Broken Tombstone

Broken Tombstone Halloween Paper Piecing pattern

Don’t let the Broken Tombstone trip and scare you while you are walking through the graveyard at night!

Update – Susan has fixed the problem and it is now a 10″ x 10″ pattern.

You can download Susan’s pattern, Broken Tombstone right here at Whims and Fancies!  When you print, please make sure that scaling is turned off.  Sewing order is included in the pattern.

    I just printed the file and its okay now. Thank you !!! And i just added my Ghostley treats, that was a fun too to make.

  2. Susan says:

    Nope; it is 11″. I am so sorry. ;(. Actually there is a strip in the center that doesn’t add anything. The bottom of the tombstone. I was trying to get the tip of the tombstone into the sky, that is why there is that bottom. I will redraw the pieces tonight if Soma doesn’t mind reposting tomorrow.

  3. Susan says:

    The block is suppose to be 10″ by 10″. I will check my measurements again. But with my so so piecing skills I like to have a border I can cut off to. The border for this one is the bottom.

  4. Carin says:

    I printed the pattern and it was printed with No SCALE. Is it correct that the size of the block is 10″ x 11″ ?

    • Soma Acharya says:

      I noticed that last night when I was resizing the photo to post. I will ask Susan, but I think the pattern is as you mentioned 10″ x 11″.

      • Carin says:

        Okay… I will wait to the answer before making the block because I thought all the blocks would be 10″ x 10″ . Hmmm… must be thinking then on my lay-out because I was going to make the blocks together into a quilt LOL

        • Soma Acharya says:

          I dropped her an email already. I will let you know as soon as I hear back from her.

          I wonder if you trim the bottom of the piece with the moon on it, and trim top of the piece with the tombstone on it, whether that will make it a 10″ x 10″ block.

          And how wonderful that you are going to make a quilt with all these blocks! That’s fantastic!!

          • Soma Acharya says:

            As you probably noticed already, Susan is going to fix the pattern. I will update the link once I get the file from her.

            Good news is now you don’t have to worry about your lay-out.

          • Carin says:

            Thanks… that is wonderful !!!

        • Soma Acharya says:

          I got the new file from Susan and updated the link. Let me know if there is any problem. Enjoy :)

  5. Carin says:

    Thank you for this fun block. I love it. I’m going to make it today !!
    When its ready I will upload it on your Flickr group. Question: Can we also upload the other blocks we made during this blog hop, such as …. I made yesterday Jennifer’s block, can I upload that too ?

    • Soma Acharya says:

      Of course! The more the merrier. I would love for you to add any block you make to the Halloween Blog Hop Flickr group.

      Thank you so much for sewing along!!

I love reading your comments and I always reply to them via email. Thank you so much for taking the time to write one.
