Indian Summer Block- Paper Piecing

 

A while ago, I downloaded a free pattern from Quilt Magazine.  It’s originally from the 2012 Dec/Jan issue of the magazine.


It’s called The Indian Summer Block and you can download it here from Quilt Magazine if you’re interested.

I don’t paper piece very often and in this case I only planned on making one block (not a whole quilt). 


I recently purchased some fabric from Fabricworm and decided to use them in this block.

I messed up the first two blocks.  Duh…oh well, like I said I don’t paper piece very often!  :)

 

Here I am back on the right track!

I worked on all four pieces simultaneously, so in other words when I worked on piece #2, I completed piece #2 on all four pieces.  This somehow seems less monotonous.

I really like it!!  It works out to be 11 1/2” square.  So, what shall it be?  I’m kinda thinking Table Topper?

  1. I love this! Made this block for my very first sampler in black/purple and greens. Smart choice to work on a couple simultaneously! Lovely colors!
