Typewriter PP pattern {and a tutorial}

Today, I'm sharing with you the Typewriter pattern, which I desigend for the PP classes at this year's Fat Quarterly Retreat in London (btw. there is a blog post on Liberty's blog about the Retreat and the PP classes and there are photos of mine and Julianna's PP blocks!).

It's an intermediate block, with few very small pieces and to make it a bit easier, there are two versions of templates - for 12x12inch and 16x16inch block. 

[I will be on holidays for next 2,5 weeks. I will try to answer my emails once or twice a week, but no promises, so if you'll have any questions, don't worry, I'll contact you after I'm back.]

Dzis maly gratis dla tych, co lubia PP - blok z maszyna do pisania, ktory zaprojektowalam na zajecia podczas Fat Quarterly Retreat w Londynie. W pliku pdf, ktory mozna sciagnac przez GoogleDocs lub Craftsy sa dwa rozmiary matryc - dla bloku 12x12 i 16x16 cali. Ponizej sa zdjecia blokow. Pierwszy jest moj ale kolejne to te uszyte przez kursantki po warsztatach w Londynie. Co jedna maszyna to inna i wszystkie sliczne! Pod zdjeciami jest instrukcja, w jakiej kolejnosci laczyc elementy bloku. 
Oczywscie bardzo sie uciesze, jesli zdecydujecie sie uszyc maszyne i z checia zobacze wasze bloki (przeslijcie mi maila do posta na blogu lub do zdjecia na Flikrze/FB/etc.). 
I mala dodatkowa informacja - nie bedzie mnie od niedzieli przez 2,5 tygodnia. Internetu na co dzien nie bede miala. Postaram sie od czasu do czasu sprawdzic maile ale nie gwarantuje, ze sie uda, wiec jesli bedziecie mieli jakies pytania, to na pewno na nie odpowiem ale moze byc tak, ze dopiero kilka dni pozniej.

* You can download the block templates via GoogleDocs or Craftsy *
 

I just wanted to show you few blocks which the talented participants of our classes already finished:




*and can you believe that this block was made by PP beginner? Me neither! Made by Jessie*

Like with all my PP patterns, the templates in pdf file are mirrorred, so you need to sew printed side up, placing the fabrics to the wrong side of the template; wrong side of the fabric to the wrong side of the template).
Mirror image with numbers:

 
Assembling block:

* C+A+B -> CAB + D -> CABD + E -> CABDE
* F+G -> FG + I + H -> FGIH + J -> FGIHJ
* CABDE + FGIHJ -> bottom part of the block
* M+L -> ML + N -> MLN + O -> MLNO
* Q+P -> QP + R -> QPR + S -> QPRS
* QPRS + K + MLNO -> QPRSKMLNO + T -> top part of the block
* bottom part + top part -> Typewriter block is ready!

I would of course LOVE! to see your blocks. You could just send me a link to your blog post/Flickr photo or you could also add your photos to my Flickr group.
