The geometric sewing machine pattern has gotten a revamp! It now has a more curved shape, smaller base, and includes the needle on the machine. But don't despair - if you loved the original version, it's included too. So you get two options in the one pattern - the revamped machine or the original! The pattern makes a 16" block. Using different shades of one colour really makes this block quite striking. This pattern is for LETTER sized paper (the size paper used most in North America), you can find a listing for A4 size (rest of the world's sized paper) separately. Due to the nature of the pattern, it does have a lot of pieces involved but tends to look more complicated than what it actually is. Naturally there are no y-seams in this (or in any of my patterns. y-seams are yuck). Paper piecing instructions are not included. Each section is clearly labelled and seam allowance has been added for each section. All you need to do is print it out and away you go :) I suggest that you print to "Actual size".
