I was so honored when Michele asked me to be one of the designers that I immediately said yes. It took me awhile to decide which block to showcase, but after reading all the comments on my welcome post about people wanting to learn paper piecing, I thought that my Old Snowflake Block (originally designed by Nancy Cabot) would be perfect. It is super simple and a great introduction to paper piecing.
3 different fabrics: for the white and stripe at least a fat eighth, for the red – 1 square 4.5″ x 4.5″
Paper Piecing Template – Print 4 Copies
Fabric Glue Stick
6.5″ square Ruler
Here’s a good picture showing how to cut the Triangles:
Now for the fun part – the Paper Piecing!
Next layout your squares and sew them together!
