Patchsmith Sampler Block 9 - Bullseye Block and Mug Rug

Block 9 Bullseye

This week’s block will help you hit the mark and hone your quick corner triangles - it's the Bullseye block.

The center is a simple framed square .....
Bullseye Block - Steps 2 and 3

And from there it is a case of sew and repeat.   Firstly you add four small quick corners.

Then you frame the square again ......

Add another four quick corners slightly larger than the first .......

Then you frame the square one last time ....

Finally you add four background quick corners, bigger than the previous .......
Completed Block 9 - Bullseye

Simple, quick and very smart. So quick in fact, I had time to stitch three arrows from Block 17 'London Roads' to create a Three Arrow Sidebar.  It goes perfectly with the Bullseye block.

(The arrowheads of the London Roads block use Skinny Triangles which I will be showcasing when we get to Block 17 - along with the Three Arrow Sidebar.)

Next week's block – Block 10 ‘Boxed In’ - is just as quick and easy as the Bullseye Block. 
Note: the cutting measurements for piece F of Block 10 should read: F - Two 1¼” x 5 rectangles (fabric 3).

I look forward to seeing your blocks on Instagram (#block9bullseye) or in the Flickr Group.
