Welcome to the Fall Block Party y’all! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year and I’m so excited to kick off this sew-a-long with the Fall Geese blocks – a beginner friendly paper piece Half-Rectangle Triangle quilt block.
This quilt block is suitable for the beginner quilter with basic knowledge of paper piecing. For those of you new to paper piecing, rest easy as the pattern has step-by-step instructions on how to make your own HRT block.
I decided to go with a yummy fall color palette that is inspired by the fall foliage found throughout the Southwest in October.
I had the chance to test out my new Day Light Company lightbox and I have to say, it made a world of difference when aligning the fabric with the paper piece template and was small enough to fit on sewing table while piecing. Win win in my book! The size of the lightbox was ideal as well as it fit perfectly next to my sewing machine.
There are a variety of ways to layout this quilt block to achieve different looks. I decided to turn my quilt block into a table runner and now I can’t wait to host my next dinner party. Come to think of it, this would make a great hostesses gift right?
Regardless, the table runner came together in no time at all y'all. Head on over to fabric.com blog to download the pattern!
Be sure to follow along with the rest of the designers below. Happy Fall Block Party Sew-a-long y'all!
