Swim Cat (Girl) Foundation Paper Pieced Quilt Block Pattern

Guest Author - Kim Noblin

Swim Cat (Girl) - 6" Quilt Block

The eighth block in our Fashion Cats quilt block series is having fun in the sun!  This is a 6" foundation paper pieced quilt block pattern.  

 

 

Cutting Instructions:

Note:  When paper-piecing, I cut larger pieces than I actually need to ensure that I won't have problem covering an area if I don't place it in exactly the right spot.  The cutting instructions below are for larger pieces.  If you'd rather cut smaller, more exact pieces, feel free to do so.

Instructions:

Step 1:  Print out the paper foundation pattern. Cut out each of the two paper-piecing units just outside of the dashed lines of the seam allowance.

Step 2:  Using a VERY short stitch length setting on your sewing machine, paper-piece each unit following the numbers on the printed foundation.  

Step 3:  When both of the two units have been pieced, carefully trim away the excess paper and fabric by cutting on the dashed lines of the seam allowance.

Step 4:  With right sides together, layer Unit B on Unit A.  Pin in place, then stitch together using a 1/4" seam allowance.  Remove the paper from the seam allowance (on both sides) and press this seam open.

Step 5:  Carefully remove the paper from the back of the block.

Step 6:  Lightly trace the face pattern on the right side of the cat's face.  Using 2 strands of embroidery floss, outline stitch the mouth and satin stitch the nose and eyes.
