HAVE YOU TRIED THIS BLOCK?
here. I love making new blocks and stretching my capabilities. I thought, maybe each time I find a new block I can add it to the others and after a while I’ll have a whole new quilt. What do you think…will these two blocks go in the same quilt?
Anyway, I got this Scrap Attach Block at From Blank Pages. In that post there is a link to her Craftsy site where you can get the pattern for free. Prior to Buffie making a paper piecing addict of me, I didn't paper piece because I didn't like tearing the paper away from the finished block. Buffie showed me how easy it really is. I would just caution you to think about the kind of paper you use before you start printing. I have a whole box full of letterhead from work that they were going to toss because of a printing error. I brought it home and use the backs for printing or drawing. Anyway, the first time I printed the pattern onto that bond paper. Big mistake. It is too difficult to tear off the pieces of paper. After that I use copy paper, which tears away easily. Enjoy!
Until next time,
Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
