As You Wish: Buttercup

 photo AYWBadge_zpsfd93af71.jpg

Welcome Pirates, Princesses and The Six Fingered Man!

Welcome Giants and Sword Fighters and Miracle Workers! 

Every two weeks, on Wednesdays between now and May 7, we will present two patterns, one paper pieced and one hand embroidered, each designed by Fandom in Stitches Designers.

Each of these wonderful designs will represent characters from one of our favorite movies here on FiS, The Princess Bride!

Want to design your own Princess Bride patterns? We will celebrate the conclusion of this fabulous event with a Design Invitational (with prizes!) in April. We encourage you to save your original designs for this special event!

Without further ado, The Princess Bride herself, Buttercup!

Quilt layouts designed by Jennifer Ofenstein.
For the first time ever, we offer you not one, but two, quilt options for the blocks presented over the course of As You Wish!

Each two blocks (for example, the two Buttercup designs in this post) can be made into a unit to create one larger block. Those blocks will be combined to make one of two quilts, the Pieced Quilt on the left or the Book Quilt on the right.  Each layout includes optional blocks to add your own designs or to include designs from the upcoming Design Invitational!   Quilt sizes and fabric amounts are included in each respective pattern. Which will you choose?

As You Wish has been a combined effort of the following designers. Share your love and appreciation by visiting them online:
