Geometric Captain America Shield : Free Pattern


so a couple of months ago, i signed up for the MARVELous Craft Swap through Instagram hosted by @justjoshinkids. what i love about swaps is the chance to try something new.

for this swap i wanted to try and design a paper pieced pattern based on Captain America's Shield. and taking my inspiration from @quietplay i made the pattern geometric, so i could make the shield more scrappy in nature.

i used the free quilt design program called QuiltAssistant to design my pattern. after figuring out what the heck i was doing, i finally landed on a pattern that worked. with a few minor tweaks here and there, i am happy how it turned out.

the pattern finishes at 13 inches square, but i slightly oversized it, so i could trim the edges down to 12.5 inches, to finish at 12 inches.



I loved designing this pattern and have a few more in the works that I hope to release as well. You can find this pattern on Craftsy. This pattern is for personal, not for profit use only. If you do make a block, tag it with #geometriccaptainamerica so I can find your creations!

Quilt Stats:
Pattern: Geometric Captain America, designed by me (find the pattern here)
Dimensions: 12 inches square

Happy Sewing!
