Purple Passion


You know I love sampler blocks, don’t you ?
I want to make a quilt with a mix of blocks from both Nearly Insane and Just Plain Nuts – just for fun.
I want to show you how I do these blocks.


Just Plain Nuts block 16 – foundation paper pieced

Remember to leave extra seam allowance around the edge – a block that is foundation paper pieced will shrink a little when you remove the paper.
Remove the paper before cutting a block to size.


Nearly Insane block 21


Here it can be convenient to pick the paper off the white sashing strips when you have cut the strips to the right width, including seam allowance! It is easy to sew along the pieced strips.

Awesome blocks! I don't do foundation piecing but it is very effective. Well done, as usual.
