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…
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…
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…
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.

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!
Thanks. I think the finished Neon quilt is definitely going to be bright and loud.
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)!
Oh I love a good pun.
yay these are fabulous!!!!!
Grey and pink really say wow, exactly what your blocks say 🙂
Ooh – they are all great but the Marley is my favorite!!

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!
Thanks. My blog header is bright and loud, a little like me.
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.
Julie’s patterns at 627 are fabulous. I have had such fun using them.
The only thing better than pink is neon pink!
Ah too true. Too true.
