The Spade and Fork Foundation Paper Piecing quilt block pattern includes two finished block sizes: 6″ and 10″

The pdf INSTRUCTIONS feature:

:: Coloured illustration of the block
:: Blank diagram and key for colouring and/or 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


:: 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
:: Laid out to print on A4 or Letter paper

There are two larger sections in the 10″ version of the block that will need to be joined together before starting to sew. See page 2 of instructions for details.

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 is more challenging as there are some much smaller pieces and you will benefit from the use of an ‘add an eighth’ ruler. There several seams to match when joining sections (refer to green circles on page 4 of the instructions).
