Terri Drafted a Couple Paper Piecing Blocks For Me
Yes, I got Terri's drafts in the mail yesterday and made a couple blocks. My friend Terri's blog is at quiltncards.blogspot.com.
For each pattern I cut a 5" square and cut each square diagonally. I cut a strip about 1.5" wide and sewed the halves of one of the 5" square on either side which made the center strip finish at 1" wide. I trimmed the block to about 5.25" square.
For the second block, I cut a strip about 2" wide and sewed the two halves of the other 5" square on either side of the strip which made the center strip finish at 1.5" wide. I trimmed the block to about 5.5" square.
I like both blocks! I want to make another block, this time with a center strip that will finish at 1.25" wide.
It will be easy to make blocks larger or smaller. Many possibilities. Though I did not paper piece these two blocks, I may paper piece future blocks.
Thank you Terri :D
