Robin FPP Block
The sighting of a Robin is always such a lovely thing and often reminds us of those dear to us. This Robin FPP quilt block will look just wonderful incorporated into a special quilt or perhaps a patchwork cushion.
The PDF pattern includes full sized templates for creating a Robin quilt block in two different block sizes: 6″ and 10″. Template included for creating a round applique eye (or you can use a small button).
The Robin Foundation Paper Piecing pattern features two finished block sizes: 6″ and 10″
The pdf INSTRUCTIONS feature:
:: Coloured illustration of the block
:: Blank diagram for colouring/planning fabric placement
:: Diagrams for joining the FPP sections, including where it’s important to match seams (look out for the green circles)
:: Guidance on printing the pattern pieces the correct size
The PATTERN PIECES feature:
:: Digitally drawn pattern pieces
:: 1/4″ seam allowances on all sections
:: Reversed so you create a block that looks exactly as the illustration
:: Coloured and labelled to make construction as easy as possible
:: Templates for applique eyes
:: Laid out to print on A4 or Letter paper
There is one larger section in the 10″ version of the block that will need to be joined together before starting to sew

This pattern is for people that are confident with Foundation Paper Piecing. This pattern features the same block in two different sizes. The 10″ version is definitely the easier of the two as the pieces are larger in size. The 6″ block has been simplified a little in places, but is much more of a challenge and you will benefit from the use of an ‘add an eighth’ ruler. There are quite a few seams to match when joining sections (refer to green circles on page 5), but if you take your time, it is worth the effort!
