Paper Piecing Monday presents Garfunkel

Another Monday, another paper pieced block.  Yipee.  Today’s block is a little more complex than my last few, but is sooooo fabulous.  May I present Garfunkel…

Garfunkel paper pieced quilt block

When Julie at 627Handworks.com posted this block a couple of weeks ago I fell in love.  It took me a week or so to work out how I wanted to approach the block and what colours I wanted to use.  I ended up choosing red/pink combinations, but wanted to use so many more colours.  For the first time I was really really frustrated by this sampler quilt’s limited palette.    The FREE paper piecing pattern can be found here.

66 fabulous pieces to make this hexagon wonder.  I have already started planning how I am going to use this pattern again –  it is so effective and I am a little hexagon obsessed at the moment!

Have a great Monday.

  1. What a great block- and you are right. So many great combos would work with this! This would be a great block for me to get some hexagons in without doing individual ones!!

  4. Hi,

    Can you please tell me what sort of paper you use for your patterns? Is it just plain old photocopy paper or is it something else?

    Thanks.

  5. Hello! So happy to have found your blog. I got lost looking through past articles and your free PP patterns! Although I am not a hexie person, I do love this block and have downloaded it from your friend’s blog site. I may not make more than one, but I’ve got to try it!
