This block was inspired by the ocean and depicts four seagulls circling around a starfish meal. Isn't everyone thinking about the beach this time of year!? You can make one 12x12" block into a pillow, a wall hanging, or an element of a table runner, or assemble multiple blocks to create a larger quilt.
This pdf pattern includes templates to create the 12" block, with fabric notes on each piece to help with accurate piecing, seam matching tips, clear assembly instructions, and a sizing guide for those interested in making a larger quilt.
This pattern does not contain basic paper piecing instructions. If you are a beginner, you can find good tutorials to help you learn the technique on YouTube or with a google search. I've found this to be a helpful starting point:
OR you can take a class on Craftsy!
Enjoy! I can't wait to see what you create!!

I'm a nature-loving yogini, crafty chick, photographer, and dedicated stay home momma and wife. I've been a crafter my entire life, but recently have been bitten by the quilting bug! I started quilting a little over a year ago, inspired by my Grammy June. I recently discovered that with paper piecing, you can make ANYthing you desire come to life with fabric. As a stay home mom of two little ones, my only sewing time is after the kids are in bed, thus: The Night Quilter was born. I grab a needle and thread once the kids are in bed!View all patterns by designer (11) »
