Texas Flower Block for Paper Piecing Wednesday…

So somehow Monday came and went without a paper piecing pattern….and so did Tuesday.  Not sure what happened but in Sesame Street styling this week’s Paper Piecing Monday is being bought to you by Wednesday, the colour green and the state of Texas…..

This traditional pattern is called the Texas Flower and there are a couple of variations on this in the older pattern books…but I went with the simpler version.

As with all my Hodge Podge blocks so far you can find the free pattern for this 6 inch block here…. Texas Flower pattern.

A Toad in a puddle…

Okay I may have made this block just because I love the its name….

There are a variety of colouring options for this block… and there is so much you can do with it.  The block is made up of four identical pieces…

And they can also be arranged in different ways.  Lots of fun to be had with this one.  The free paper piecing pattern for my 6 inch version can be found here….Toad in a puddle pattern.

I may have to play with this pattern and make another block just for fun.
