Welcome to the fourth installment of As You Wish, a Princess Bride Quilt & Stitch Along presented by your Fandom In Stitches Designers!

Every other Wednesday through May, we will present two patterns, one paper pieced and one hand embroidered, each designed by Fandom in Stitches Designers.

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

And now, without further ado, the Six Fingered Man himself, Count Rugen!

Both patterns are in one easy-to-print PDF document. For best results, print without scaling.

Quilt layouts designed by Jennifer Ofenstein.

As part of this True Love inspired event, we offer you two options for the blocks presented over the course of As You Wish!

Each two blocks (for example, the two Westley 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. Final piecing instructions will be posted in May.



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