A COMPLETE KIT – A FULL ALPHABET with the punctuation and numbers expansion pack.
A foundation paper piece quilt pattern inspired by FUTURA a geometric sans serif font designed by Paul Renner, 1927 (Bauer Font Foundry, Germany)
Whilst this pattern assumes some user knowledge of foundation paper piecing, a confident and patient beginner should be able to follow along.
Each block will measure 6″x6″ finished (approx 15cm x 15cm) with the exception of W which measure 7″x6″ finished (approx 18cm x 15cm). Standard 1/4″ quilting seam allowances are required. The additional markings on the patterns allow for 3/4″ (approx 2cm) spacing between characters when creating words and sentences.
BONUS FEATURE – This is an excellent scrap buster – use up your left over binding and tiny scraps to make each letter and combine with larger scraps as the background.
Useful tool – if you’ve got an ‘Add-a-quarter’ ruler this is an ideal project to give it a run.
I’m excited to see how you use this pattern to create crisp FUTURA-fied quilts of your favourite movie quotes and sentences. Customise a message for your loved ones or just get creative.
