Quilt Blocks of the States - North Carolina
North Carolina- 12" Quilt Block
The next block in our state block series is North Carolina. It is foundation paper-pieced.
Step 1: Print out the paper-piecing foundations by clicking here. (This is a PDF file and will require Adobe Acrobat Reader to open.) Trim around each of the 5 units about 1/8" outside of the dotted line of the seam allowance. Paper-piece each unit using a very short stitch length setting on your sewing machine. When you've finished paper-piecing each unit, trim away the excess fabric and paper by cutting along the dotted line of the seam allowance. Carefully remove the paper from the back of each unit.

Step 2: Arrange the sections as shown in the block image above and sew into rows . Sew the rows together to finish the block.
