Paper Piecing Monday the Global edition

Welcome to another edition of Paper Piecing Monday.  On the weekend I found the perfect layout of my current sampler blocks and I am very excited.  The pattern uses just 10 blocks so I am nearing the end of this colour way.  But before we say good-bye there is a block or two to do…

Free paper piecing star block

The block is Julie at 627handworks “Global Concept” paper piecing pattern.  You can find the free pattern here.  As with all of Julie’s patterns there are so many ways this block can be interpreted.  I went with the light grey star in the center after toying with the idea of using the light blue fabrics in the center piece.   I am loving how it finished up.

Global block pieces

The block takes 35 pieces  and is one of the least complex of Julie’s patterns, not that you can tell by the finished block.  Using all scrap pieces to make my “Global Concept” added a complexity to it, which I love.

More music inspired paper piecing next week…
