Basic Skills Necessary:

  • know-how of paper piecing

Pattern Description:

***I recently updated this pattern and now includes 6 inch and 12 inch finished block patterns!! Plus more features, see below.

I originally came up with this design for my [4x5] Modern Quilting Bee block. After making 6 of these, I was absolutely smitten with it and want to share it with everyone who is also interested in using this block.

It is fairly quick to put together, with a simple pattern. Yet the results are bold and interesting. The bold lines and slight angles capture your eye and keep you focused on the design. The thick lines are also great for showing off prints that you love, instead of hiding them behind the design. A great addition to any sampler quilt, or put a lot of blocks together for a wonderful design!

In This Pattern:
:: Pattern for 6 inch finished block
:: Pattern for 12 inch finished block
:: Cutting templates for both sizes (great to help minimize waste, or for perfect fussy cutting!
:: 3 different coloring pages

***Are you knew to paper piecing??? Don't you fret! Instructions for paper piecing are not included with the pattern, BUT I did put together a complete paper piecing tutorial on my blog. I even used this pattern for my tutorial so you can easily follow right along!
