The Splendid Sampler™: Block 53


My seam ripper was quite happy with block n. 53 of The Splendid Sampler. Called Whirling in circles” and designed by Deb Roberts, it features lots of pointy intersections which my seam ripper just love. But, to its disappointment, I must say I was able to piece it with far less help from it as I had expected at the beginning.

The block was surprisingly quick to piece, even with the collaboration of the seam ripper in between and the presence of some bias seams. The method used for constructing the flying geese units was new to me (I had seen it before, but never actually used it), and it’s really comfortable to work with given the cutting dimensions. It does save lots of fabric and cutting time!

Pattern, info and link party for this block are found here.
