Paper Piecing Monday overload

Today’s paper piecing Monday is a “three for the price of one” deal.  I got a little carried away doing my neon blocks last week and thought I would share all the blocks I made.  First up is…

free paper piecing pattern

A flying geese block, of sorts.  I wanted a graphic block that was not a star and this is where I ended up.  I think you can have a lot of fun with this block, depending on how you choose to colour it and lay it out.

It is a pretty simple block and you can find the paper piecing pattern here…Neon Lost Geese.  Next up I did another graphic block…

Neon squares block

I know I am going to revisit this block because I am dying to make this pattern with a more scrappy approach and fussy cut centers.  Too much fun.  I have made a 6 x 6 inch pattern for this block, Neon Square block but I think I will enlarge the block for my scrappy version.

The last neon block I made this week was a re-do of a paper piecing pattern I made last year…

Neon Marley block

Yep I revisited the marvelous Julie @ 627Handwork’s Marley block.  You can find the free pattern here.  This pattern is fabulously bold, geometric and perfect for this quilt sampler.  I now have only two more blocks to go before I can finish this quilt up.

  1. They look great! I have been working on Compass of Many Colors Block 9 for my medallion quilt. So happy to have found your blog–tons of paper piecing inspiration! The neon quilt is going to be amazing!

  2. Oh, you’re loving the neons, aren’t you? “Oops, I accidentally made too many. Oh well, I’ll just have to make some more…!” I have to agree that the colour combinations you’re using are spot on (sorry, intentional pun)!

  3. I am absolutely loving your blog and I’m so glad I found it. You have such beautiful and precise piecing, and your colour combinations are superb! I think I love every single block in your blog header, and I love these bright neon ones too!

  4. Beautiful blocks! You are so kind to share your patterns too. And thanks for the 627 link. I went there and picked out some others that I like.
