30s Sampler Block of the Month #6

The new set of 30s Sampler Blocks are ready for you to hop over and pick up in my online store.

Month 6 Blocks

This month you’ll notice that one of the blocks is paper pieced (Block 21 in the upper left corner).

You may use any method you’d like to paper piece or foundation piece the block but if you feel the same way I do about ripping all that paper out you may want to try Freezer Paper Foundation Piecing.  It’s the only way I paper piece!

I’ve included a link on the Block of the Month page on my website to a pdf with instructions. I plan to post a tutorial later in the month but I’m out of the office for the next two weeks while helping my mom after knee replacement surgery). But I got your patterns ready before leaving town!

Happy Stitching! Or happy pattern collecting, whichever the case may be for you!!
