union jack block for erica
Just thought I’d stop in a quick share a block I made for last month’s Ringo Pie bee
said, these blocks are deceivingly simple looking. It was fun though, I got to try paper piecing. I had only done paper piecing once with a string block
via Film in the Fridge
(just a bit simpler than the union jack, but a really good one to start with and get the hang of how it all works).
If you’re interesting in trying out this block a similar template and set of instructions is available here
ps, if you’re a fan of vintage and quilts and overall goodness, I highly suggest reading both Erica’s and Kerry’s blogs, they’re wonderfully inspiring.
