Koi PP paterns & a giveaway

I prepared two Koi Carp PP patterns:

* First is an easier pattern (for confident beginners and beyond). A 10" x 17" PP block which I once used to make this 'Koi pond' wallhanging (and since then several people were asking me about the pattern so it's finally time to prepare one). 
In adition to the pattern, you can use the free tutorial for the water lilies to make your own version of the wallhanging. You can find the tutorial HERE.

Dzisiaj dwa wzory PP karpia koi. Pierwszy, latwiejszy, dla tych, ktorzy nie czuja sie ekspertami w szyciu PP. Blok ma wymiary 10" x 17" i niewiele czesci do zszycia razem. Moze niektorzy jeszcze pamietaja, jak kiedys uszylam makatke z karpiem koi i liliami. To wlasnie wzor do tego karpia, w tym samym rozmiarze. Jedyne, co trzeba dodac, zeby uszyc taka makatke, to lilie wodne z materialu, do ktorych tutorial jest TUTAJ.

* Second pattern came to life when I finished the easier version. I decided that it's time to have an 'upgraded' version of the Koi. This pattern is for intermediates and advanced in paper piecing. Has lots of parts but is also bigger - 14" x 16". 

Drugi wzor powstal po tam, jak skonczylam przygotowywac ten latwiejszy. Stwierdzilam, ze po dwoch latach od pierwszego karpia, powinnam przygotowac jakas trudniejsza wersje. W koncu moje bloki PP troche sie zmienily od tamtego czasu. Tak oto powstal drugi karp - wersja dla zaawansowanych. Blok ma duzo czesci ale jest tez wiekszy - 14" x 16". Do uszycia go uzylam materialow z serii Stonehenge firmy Northcott (ponizej sa dokladne numery poszczegolnych tkanin):

For this block I used Northcott Stonehenge Fabrics:
- blue/teal: #3951 by Sunshine Cottage
- gold: 3954M by Linda Ludavico
- red: #3934M by Sunshine Cottage
- white: #3956M by Sunshine Cottage
- black: #3938 by Sunshine Cottage

  2. Piękne! Ten drugi wzór wykonany z tych tkanin po prostu ZACHWYCA!!! Pięknie podkreślona woda i sam jest idealny! Dopiero po zestawieniu razem jak poszłaś do przodu i jak skomplikowane wzory PP teraz tworzysz.
    Gdyby szczęście mi dopisało to rzuciłabym się na głęboką wodę - czyli nowa wersja :)
    Pozdrawiam

  3. Nęcisz karpiem :). Gdybym miała szyć, chciałabym trudniejszy. Ale życia mi nie wystarczy na wszystkie szyciowe plany.

  7. Ahhh, I have always LOVED your koi wallhanging! It makes me so happy that you've released it as a pattern! Should I be lucky enough to be one of the winning three, I would love the beginner pattern; I've only been paper piecing for a short while and the advanced looks daunting!

  8. This is beautiful. I've been watching this pattern since you first posted it. I was so excited when I got on today and saw you were offering it for sale. I also love that you made an advanced version, and I would LOVE to get my hands on it. Thank you for the continuous offers and happy paper piecing to all!

  9. I love your Koi wall hanging, it's so pretty and reminds me of my childhood when our neighboring small town had a koi stream around the bandstand on the square. When we would make our weekly trip to it I would just spend the entire time watching the koi. If I am lucky enough to win I would love the advanced copy.

  11. As much as I like the more difficult koi pattern I'm still a beginner so that is the one I would choose.. If I am lucky enough to win and find the easier fish easy to piece I can then try my hand at more detailed patterns.Thank you for making patterns that everyone can do!
