31. Paper Piece a Spinning Square Block

It's time to tackle block #8, our Spinning Square block and we're mixing our piecing up by learning paper piecing!

For this block you also have the option to use a special fabric in the center - a small piece of T-shirt fabric, a decorative embroidery, or a special print. The choice is entirely yours, but do make sure if you're using t-shirt fabric that you stabilize it with interfacing like French Fuse so it doesn't turn into a stretchy mess when we try to quilt it!

Now kick back and enjoy learning how to paper piece this cool block!

Whew! Paper piecing definitely has a lot more steps and can be pretty complicated. Personally I like paper piecing in small doses, which makes this project perfect! Piece up 4 pretty blocks and get ready to quilt them all by the end of July!

Let's go quilt,

  1. Спасибо!!!! Очень интересно ! Все так понятно, даже без слов.! Обязательно попробую.

  2. An add a quarter or add an eighth ruler would make lining up the fabric and trimming seam allowances far easier and more accurate. I also fold the paper back over a credit card or a magazine subscription card to get a nice sharp crease.
