Patchsmith Sampler Block 16 - Jigsaw Block

Block 16 - Jigsaw

You may have come across this week’s block before as I introduced it a year ago as a free block pattern to highlight Autism awareness month.  The free block pattern includes cutting instructions for both a 6” and 12” Jigsaw block so be sure to download it even if you already have the book.  Just click on the link below.

This week’s Jigsaw block is a perfect beginner block as it doesn’t really matter if your seams don’t match or they are not exactly ¼”.

It is aslo perfect ‘blender’ block in so far as you can use offcuts of fabric used elsewhere in the quilt or you can use a limited colourway.

It reminds me of my Jigsaw mug rug pattern which is also a great for beginners.

Next week we tackle ‘skinny triangles’ for the first time when we make Block 17 – London Roads.  In the meantime I look forward to seeing your block photos over on Instagram (#block16jigsaw). Until then …….
