So here it is my friends, the very first block of our BoM.
This is a nice easy one to get us started on paper piecing. The design was inspired by Fiona of Finding Fifth. Do pop over to her blog today – she has a post with some hints and tips on how to make this block!
Fiona’s block is in the centre, and the one on the right is by one of the fab pattern testers, Pippa. Thanks girls!
I have also written up a tutorial as a bit of an introduction to paper piecing, using this block to demonstrate. You might find it helpful if you haven’t tackled paper piecing yet.
The pattern for Measure Twice is now available in my Craftsy store. It is free for the month of January. So what are you waiting for?! Download it, pick out some fabrics and get sewing!
When you’re done with your block, pop a photo in the Flickr group to share with everyone, or let me know if you have any questions, or just start up a chat with fellow BoMers!
Plus make sure you add your photo to the linky party on this post right here (either from Flickr or a blog post). Linky party is open from today until the 31st of January. Why a linky party?! Because there are prizes up for grabs! Winners will be chosen at random from those who have linked up.
I’m sure you’d love to know what the prizes are! So! In no particular order, for the month of January, we have:
A Scrap pack from Fabricworm.
A $20 gift voucher from Christa Quilts
A $20 gift voucher from Fat Quarter Shop
Winners for these prizes will be selected at random on the 1st February. That’s Aussie time, remember! So make sure you get your blocks linked up before the end of the month!A Flower Fairies fabric pack from Fiona @ Finding Fifth
Happy paper piecing! Can’t wait to see your blocks!
