Paper Piecing Monday presents Zeppelin

Well the end is definitely in sight with my latest sampler quilt… with this week’s block I have enough blocks for my quilt top layout.  So here is the last of my bright and grey blocks – The Zeppelin.

All of the blocks in this quilt have come from the free Block Rockn’ paper pieced series by Julie at 627Handworks.  You can find the Zeppelin and the other great patterns here.  Julie has just released the last pattern in this series so there are 12 free patterns in total.  You should check them out – they range from easy (like this one at just 20 pieces) to complex (her last block, Floyd, is fabulous but much more intricate with 80 pieces).

Because of the size of this pattern you had to stick two pieces of paper together to make the foundation, but that was about as complex as this gets.  This block fitted in nicely with the others I have done.  Last night I pinned them up on my design wall, so I could start mocking up how to finish this top.

I have a vision in my head how it all should look, I now just need to work out how to make my quilt top match my idea.

I am hoping to get this top finished shortly – unlike my red/aqua top which is still sitting in a box waiting for me to decide what I want to do with it.  I am desperate need of some sewing fairies… any one have some spare?

  1. Just love this block and they all look amazing together. It has been so much fun watching and waiting in anticipation for the next block. I have so enjoyed it Cath. I have no doubt you will have a WOW quilt with it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the little bees peeking out! That is going to be a gorgeous quilt. You are making me reconsider making all of Julie’s blocks. I only have about 5 of them made so far and I was going to combine them with my skill builder blocks. I can’t wait to see your quilt top!

  3. I am just in awe of how great a paper piecer you are. You give me hope! I just did my very first block today.
    The gray background on these blocks is fabulous and all those bright colours in the blocks make them look like gemstones! Sew-weet! Thanks for sharing!
