Paper piecing and a written word? Not for me. So I sew that 6"

Blockheads 4 - Shoo Fly

This week's block is a sweet little birdhouse by Jan Patek (click here for the link). I decided that I want only reularly pieced blocks for my sampler, no representational blocks like birds, bunnies, houses, baskets, hearts, etc. So I substituted Jan Patek's block for a traditional, 6"

Blockheads 3 - Crown and Star

As this block is made up of many pieces I went for a 12" block.

I love how the precise measurements in the patterns and the scant 1/4" foot of my sewing machine are delivering perfect blocks. Thanks to all the designers!
