Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

The blocks are finally complete!! This is a "Synergy" block designed by Jinny Beyer. It has been paper pieced and it's 10" square. I like to do my paper pieceing on tracing paper. I buy large 14" X 17" pads of paper from Hobby Lobby and trace the patterns myself. I do a lot of paper pieceing and I find that tracing paper holds up very nicely with the smaller stitches required and it folds nicely for trimming without any tears. The hardest part of this block was making the fabric choices! Last night I put the blocks together and now I just need to add the borders. I will update with a picture when that's completed.

Having just finished a Baltimore quilt I was looking for something new to start - inspiration, my Jinny Beyer Synergy quilt! Have the materials and the pattern - all ready to start and realised that I have lost my master copy of the foundation piecing pattern. Disaster!! Have emailed McCall's but no response. Do you know where I can get a copy??

OOOHHHHH I love the colors and the twist on this block. I made a qlt similar to this. Except my middle block is cut with 6 sides and PP around that. I'm now working on my second one and each blk in my qlt are all different. With no repeat fabric. I 'm glad you shared this qlt blk. I must try this one someday. Thanks for Sharing this.
