By happenstance, I recently ran into a lovely woman online who was looking for a paper pieced pattern of the Washington Monument. I was feeling inspired and took on the project.
After a few false starts due to migrating from yet another dead computer to a new one, I put together this 6x9 pattern. It is totally suitable for beginners and goes together in three easy sections.
This was originally intended to be a larger block but I shrank it down since most people are not looking for blocks of that size. Because of that, piece A3 is quite small and may get a bit lost in the seam. It will work just fine to leave A3 out and move on to A4 if you don't want to fiddle with it. The pattern blows up well to a wall hanging size of 24x36, and at that size I highly recommend constructing the pattern as designed.
My travels in Germany and the surrounding countries have renewed my interest in architecture and history and I am thinking I may add more famous buildings and monuments to the collection over time. This pattern is available for free as the introductory pattern, so enjoy it!
You can find the pattern in the pattern shop.
