This Grader has been designed with boys who love machines in mind. It would make a great addition to your next quilt, especially one featuring earthwork or roadwork machinery, tractors or trucks.
Once sewn this pattern will create a quilt block that is 12 inches high and 28 inches wide, meaning it should fit nicely with any quilt made using other 12" blocks and 4" sashing. The pattern is able to be scale photocopied to other sizes if required.
This pattern is a completely paper pieced pattern and requires only straight line sewing. No applique! It would be suitable for people with intermediate or advanced skills, however, may be suitable for someone who is learning. A separate file with basic paper piecing instructions is included, and there are also many great tutorials online.
The pattern consists of 13 coloured foundation templates 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.
It is fine for purchasers to use this pattern to make quilts and sell in markets or display on social media etc, as long as it is handmade and not mass-produced. Credit for the design is always appreciated!

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.
