This small-scale block looks great in a mini quilt! Unlike my other patterns, this PDF includes only the templates for the paper-pieced block in this quilt. No paper piecing instructions are given. Very basic instructions for replicating my original swap quilt, plus a few tips on piecing these blocks, are included. ************************************ REVISED: Each block is now only one paper piecing unit, making the quilt a lot faster to piece and greatly reducing the buildup of fabric at the seam intersections when the blocks are joined. ************************************ BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Paper piecing Basic quilting skills SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 4" finished blocks

Recommended with this pattern
