Happy New Year! I hope you’ve had a great start to the new year.
Let’s start this block of the month. I’m incredibly excited to get back to English paper piecing. I’ve been neglecting it as I’ve been focussed on the granny square blanket and a cardigan I’m crocheting. I’ve also done a lot of bag and pouch sewing but almost no patchwork or quilting.
Right, here we go:
You need to print out January 1 and January 3 once and January 2 as often as you need to get the width that you’d like. I’m going to print it out eight times which results in a quilt that is 60″ wide. The quilt consists of twelve rows and will end up being 72″ long. You can, of course, make the quilt smaller by making less rows. I might add some squaring up lines to the templates after a few rows.
As you’re printing, make sure you don’t scale the printout. Keep it at 100% and check the little square is 1″x1″.
I can’t wait to start this project and see what you guys make of it. Happy sewing!
