Purchasers of this pattern will receive 3 pattern files which are instantly downloadable. One file contains the foundation pattern for a 12 inch finished quilters block with seam allowances. Both a left facing and right facing Digger Pattern are included.

Another file contains a basic paper piecing instructions. This pattern is suitable for people with some experience of foundation paper piecing and while there are basic instructions included, there are also some very good tutorials online.

The pattern consists of 10 sections which need to be sewn together. A diagram detailing the layout of the pieces is included and can also be used as a colouring sheet. All the finished sections include seam allowances. This pattern assumes that you are already able to quilt using the foundation paper piece method, however, it may be suitable for confident beginners.

To ensure that the pattern prints out at the right size, please make sure that you have unchecked "scale to fit page" in your printer settings. Instructions to reduce or increase the size of the finished block are included, however, it should be noted that some of the numbered sections are very small and reducing the size may result in a loss of detail in the finished product.

Pattern purchasers may sew finished items from my patterns for both personal use and small-scale production for sales at local markets and online. It should not be mass produced. Please credit BabyBobsNZ for the design if selling online.

Frequently Asked Questions

I found a mistake in one of your patterns, what can I do about it?

Each of my patterns has been developed with care and tested by multiple people. However, if you find a mistake in one of my patterns, please send me an email containing a photo of the mistake or detailed description (page number and problem) within 30 days of your original purchase. I will not only refund your purchase, but will also provide you with another pattern free of charge as well as a corrected copy of the pattern you originally purchased when it becomes available.

The pattern I purchased does not list fabric requirements - Is this a mistake?

It's not a mistake. Most of my patterns are Foundation Pieced Patterns and Fabric requirements can vary greatly depending on your technique, experience and level of skill.
I have found that most people like to use scraps from their stash or Fat Quarters to make smaller Foundation Pieced blocks.
Large Patterns and Patterns that are not Foundation Pieced will have a list fabric requirements.

I cant seem to access or download my pattern. What can I do?

The item you have purchased is digital in nature. I highly recommend you download it immediately after purchase and save a copy of this file to your computer for future use. However if something goes wrong and for some reason you can no longer access your pattern, email me with a copy of your receipt, date of purchase or Etsy order number and I will send you another copy as soon as I can.
