Block pattern for Paper Piecing and/or Appliqué

Sometimes I am drawing a special pattern by request of an individual quilter. By and by I will publish these patterns here. Some will be free forever, some only for a limited time. EQ files are available for selected blocks. Block size may vary.

Files with a .pj7 extension are only for use with Electric Quilt software.

Make sure your printer's scaling option is set to "none" to print the correct size.

As always: Check out my to site tips for paper piecing.

If you have used one of my patterns in a quilt or other item, why don't you send me a picture for the guest gallery?

A big jar block swap called for a pile of shifting jars. The special charm was the huge collection of fruit and vegetable themed fabrics every participant received. But with some ambitioned fabric and free block collecting from the web you will be able to make your own storage shelf.
