Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Paper Piecing
  • Basic Sewing

Pattern Description:

If you are brand new to foundation paper piecing, start with a quick tutorial. There are many free videos on YouTube about this technique and you should familiarize yourself with it. Anyone can do this technique. It is not difficult. It's a great project for strips.

If you're a book lover and a quilter, you will love this little quilt. It's a perfect wall hanging size. If you prefer to make a lap quilt size, you have two options. You could take your pattern print outs to a copy shop and have them increase the size 200% or you can make more than 16 blocks, and arrange them how you like. The pictures reflect this. The last picture is my quilt, in the small size, made with a red bamboo print instead of brown wood.

Print as many copies as you need to practice these blocks.
