I hope you all enjoy this beginning of Spring like I do, gardening with my little ones and following this joyful blog hop! Today is my turn and I propose you a paper piecing block. Here is my Rockrose block:
You can download the pattern HERE and THERE. This block includes Y seams. This is an opportunity for those who believe Y seams are difficult to try it and see how easy it is! So if you are new to Y seams, do not worry, just follow those easy steps:
HOW TO SEW Y SEAMS:
Each seam must end without including the seam allowance. This allows you to pivot the pieces and attach them without creating a tuck. Mark small dots at the seam line corners on all pieces to be joined. (In a paper pieced block, you do not need to mark dots because you use the end/corners of paper). Use a pin to pin through the dot (or corner of paper) at each end before you sew. Start sewing right at that point (remove the pin first) and backstitch. When you come to the other end, stop right at the dot and backstitch again. Done!
I hope you will have fun sewing my block! And do not forget to check the other designer's blocks on the Fling Spring Blog Hop page!
