Loving Hugs III – a small English paper pieced quilt pattern
NOTE! This block uses English paper piecing technique.
This pattern doesn’t explain the English Paper Piecing technique. Instructions on how to baste the fabric to the paper templates or how to whip stitch the pieces together are NOT included. It assumes that you know this technique.
If you don’t know this technique and want to learn it, there are many free tutorials on Internet. You can search the terms “English Paper Piecing Tutorial” on Google.
The very center of the block is an octagon. 8 triangles are stitched around the octagon. The new shape is an octagon too.
You could finish the piece at this stage. You could make it in any size- instructions and measurements are included.
If you want a more complex piece (and bigger), you could add a second row of bigger triangles.
The pattern includes pieces in five sizes. I made pieces in the first three sizes.
Small piece size: 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”
Medium piece size: 8¾” x 8¾”
Large piece size: 11 5/8” x 11 5/8”
Measurements for other two (bigger) sizes are included too.
Learn three different ways to finish your blocks
I finished my pieces as coasters and a placemat. For these you need fusible heavyweight interfacing (like Peltex, Fast2Fuse, Decovil).
The blocks could be quilted on batting as well.
For bigger quilts or table runners, you could make a few blocks and appliqued them on a larger square background then piece the new blocks.
Great pattern for Christmas colors and pieces!
And here is an idea for a colorful set!
