Spring Happiness: Mystery for The Young at Heart

Paper Piecing Pattern
Finished block size: 30 x 30 cm plus seam allowances.


Here he comes - the gladsome Findus! Findus is a very clever and joyous tomcat who brightens the life of his owner Pettson. The picture books with the stories about this odd couple are very well known and beloved by both children and adults in Europe since decades. If you are not familiar with Findus visit Wikipedia or Site in English Hawthorn Press. Additionaly you may search for images of Pettson and Findus by using your search engine.

I made up the pattern by courtesy of the creator of the character, Sven Nordqvist from Sweden.
Thank you, Mr. Nordqvist!

If you send a photo of your assembled block to me I will reward you with the full original Findus pattern without distracting misrepresentations of the elements. Later on I am looking forward to fill the guest gallery with pretty mini quilts and pillows featuring Findus.

I want you to sew!

I know quilters love to collect. But this time collecting is not enough! Send me a picture or a to site scanned image of your already sewn parts (right side up) and I will send the needed pattern pieces in return!


Make sure your printer's scaling option is set to "none" to print the correct size.
