I made this block as a test block for Esther of ipatchandquilt. She’s in the Netherlands and designs some amazing paper pieced quilt blocks. She was looking for someone to proof this pattern.
Like a fool, I thought I could make it a little better by dividing the sections further and alternating sections with light and dark fabrics. Esther correctly predicted that matching all 16 points in the center of the block would be problematic and Yes It Was!
Still, I loved the way it turned out. Just a little messy in the center, but we here at SewMessy don’t really care about that! 🙂
