Kim of Persimon Dreams is sponsoring My Favorite Block Quilt Along through the month of April. There will be a total of 20 blocks, in two sizes available during this quilt along. The best part is that each block is presented by a different quilter, and a number of the blocks are original designs.
Today is my turn. I am sharing a sewing themed block - Pincushion and Dancing Spools.
I had a lot of fun designing this block. It is available as a PDF file for you to download and make either as a 6" inch block (pincushion center), or the full 12" block with border and dancing spools corner stones.
|For a 6" block, make only the center pincushion applique block|
The directions are rather lengthy, with lots of pictures. You can access them as a printable PDF file here.
You will also need the pattern templates, which can be accessed here:
Dancing Spool Block
|The 3" dancing spool block can be used as a center or sashing cornerstone in other blocks|
Happy Quilting ♥
