I am sew excited to be joining the sew much fun blog hop with Jen at faithandfabricdesign.com. I am fairly new at pattern design. I have so many ideas constantly going through my mind.
I designed this block for a monthly challenge as an Island Batik Ambassador. That project used 6" blocks, so I made this into a 12" block. This is a paper piecing block and you can find the pattern here. You will follow this tutorial, which you can find at https://kathyskwiltsandmore.blogspot.com/2017/06/tutorial-foundation-paper-piecing.html?m=1. You will make 4 of these blocks and put 2 on top and 2 on bottom.
Your will need 2 fat quarters each of 3 colors and 1/4 yards of white or cream.
Your finished block will look like this:
It is going to measure only about 12" unfinished. I goofed up and have not had a chance to fix it.
Would you like to win a stash builder roll of beautiful Batik fabrics? All you have to do, is leave a comment about the tutorial and for a 2nd chance, leave another comment about how you follow me. I am on facebook at Kathy's Kwilts and More
And of course here on my blog.
The contest will close at Midnight mountain standard time on Sunday, June 25th. Good luck. Open to U.S. residents only.
