Paper Piecing Monday continues…

It is week two of my new sampler quilt and I once again went to Julie’s fabulous free Block Rock’n patterns.   The pattern for this week  is called Icky Thump, and with a name like that I had to make it.

It is a simple pattern in just four pieces (as opposed to a lot of the stars I have recently made which are 8 pattern pieces).    Just 24 fabric pieces to make this block, but it still looks complex and interesting.  I think a quilt of these blocks would be spectacular, but for now I am settling for adding just one block to my new sampler quilt.

Now I am off to the post office.  I have packages of scraps to send to Australia and 5 inch charm blocks to head to out for a rainbow charm swap.

  1. Cath – this block is awesome and it would me a great quilt! 24 pieces of fabric seems so manageable after so many of your stars 🙂 I’m really digging your color scheme for your new sampler!

  2. Wow, another great block! I love how you used a bunch of different prints but it all works because of the different values. You’re inspiring me to do more paper piecing!
