If you are new to paper piecing, I encourage you to give it a try. These patterns are relatively simple to paper piece and once you work through the first one, you'll wonder why you've waited so long! If however, you can't part from traditional piecing, you can still work from this pattern. Here's how:
Simply cut apart the pattern and cut out the corresponding fabric pieces adding a 1/4" seam allowance to each side. It is important to be accurate with this! Sew the pieces together with 1/4'' seams just as you would with any other patchwork. Be sure to sew the pieces together in order, i.e., start with piece A1, then attach A2, A3, etc.. Once you connect all of the A pieces, do the same with the B pieces. When the B pieces are all assembled, sew B onto A, and so on.
The block patterns, if used individually, would make great mug rugs, hot pads, apron pockets or pot holders. You could also use just a few of the patterns to make table toppers, wall hangings or tote bags for your gardening friends!
