Last month I created a swap block with the Take Flight pattern that I hope to release by the end of January.
This pattern allowes so much play with the lay-out and color positioning. Just look at the next picture. Same patterns, but a totally differently layout and coloring.
The color request, for Christina’s swap blocks, is the always beautiful combination of turquoise, grey and a bit of pink. In the swap group this combo is very popular! Love those colors too, so I have lots of fabrics to play with.
The second block (above) is also a pattern for Spring 2016. It is named ‘ Humming’ after humming birds. Their pointy beaks and tails inspired this block.
The above last block is a new pattern that will be offered on Craftsy soon. It will be a FREE pattern! Watch my blog for its release!
All of the blocks are foundation pieced. I write my own patterns using the EQ7 software. I just print my patterns in regular paper and sew through it. After all the sewing and assembly of the block is completed, I rip the paper of.
I am thinking about writing some blogposts with foundation paper piecing tips. What are the things about paper piecing that give you trouble? What would you like to more know about?
You can see the everybody’s swap block on this gallery page. Scroll down to see the latest additions.
