The perfect 12-inch paper piece pattern to complete your little boys' quilt full of tractors, trucks and other working machines. This 12-inch bulldozer pattern is part of the Kohatu Patterns Roadworks and Construction series and looks great with our other patterns, including the Digger, Grader, Dump Truck, and Steamroller! Mix and match them all to get the perfect quilt - or use just one to embellish a book bag, pillow or other sewn item for a finished product that little boys (and big ones) will cherish for years to come.
Purchasers of this pattern will receive 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 bulldozer are included. The other files contain 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 8 sections which need to be sewn together and is rated as medium difficulty. This pattern assumes that you are already able to foundation paper piece, however, it may be suitable for confident beginners as it features only straight line sewing.
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.
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 quite small and reducing the size may result in a loss of detail in the finished quilters block.
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. Credit to Kohatu Patterns for the design if selling online is very much appreciated, although is not essential.

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.
