The Splendid Sampler™: Block 79


The 79th block of The Splendid Sampler “Spool of Inspirational Threadsby Melanie Barrett is the first out of three (for the moment) consecutive paper-pieced blocks. This one wasn’t particularly difficult, although I ended with a shorter seam-allowance at the top piece (it seems it won’t be a problem, though). That happens when you don’t double check the seam allowances once the fabric is pinned to the paper -I don’t normally use glue, and with pinning the fabric may shift a little-.

Great to use scraps, or a directional print for the central part of the spool, pattern and link party for this block are here.
