The Splendid Sampler™: Block 71


The 71th block of The Splendid Sampler™ “First stitch” is a deceptively easy and quick paper-pieced block by Kerry Green (Very Kerry Berry). And it was lots of fun to sew together!

The main concern while sewing this one is to leave the seam allowance between sections A and B. In Kerry Green’s blog there is a wonderful post full of tips, and also inspiration to play with the fabric placement.

Actually, this block offers tons of possibilities: from drawing a grid to an interlaced pattern, I’m already seeing this as a pillow case… or a table runner…

Pattern and more info are here.

    • This one is a good one to start… I was surprised of how easy it was! It seems impossible that we have 70 blocks on our backs so far… this year is flying by! I’m sure you will find motivation in getting all the sampler done ;-) (at least, it’s where I found it when I need it!)
