Three more 12″ blocks for you you enjoy! These are the F2F blocks for Kate in lime green, grey and black on a light background.
I am really happy with how this block turned out. I know that Kate pieced this same pattern for her quilt too, but it does look different because of the fussycut diamonds in the centre.
I created a HACK of my Venice pattern to be able to fussycut the diamond shape in the centre of this block. Also, I used a gluestick to precisely glue the fabric on the paper pattern. No shifting, just fabulousness!
I have added the HACK document to the Venice pattern on Craftsy. If you have purchased the pattern, you can download the document again. It will now contain a little pdf explaining how to hack the pattern. I would love to see how your blocks turn out!!! Please send a picture of them to me!
This second block is made with the ‘Star Dance’ pattern.
Block 3 is another one of my favorites and one that I know Kate will enjoy: Humming. Humming Birds for her tropical garden!
Sadly I forgot to take a picture of it completely pieced… too quick to mail the package, ha ha!

Esther, these are gorgeous. What a dramatic and effective colour scheme Kate chose – the gallery is looking amazing.
I am so glad you are joining in the next F2F – it’s such a treat to receive your beautiful blocks through the post.
That color combo rocks!!!! So dramatic…..and the piecing is awesome!!!!!!
And now, of course, I’m pawing the ground impatiently! The variety of ways you can use black, grey, lime green and white is astonishing, and my quilt is going to totally rock! I have used my version of your Venice star in dedication to Pat, and will probably manage to scrape together some time time to make my own blocks once the next couple of weeks’ medical nonsense is out of the way. I’ve pretty much decided on narrow black sashing with QAYG for the blocks; they’re all so different I feel they need individual quilting treatment.
Your precisely cut paper piecing just amazes me; all are gorgeous though.
