Block 58 Homeward Bound

A paper pieced block from The Splendid Sampler. Paper piecing is probably my most favorite technique for constructing quilt blocks. 

I am currently working on a double wedding ring quilt for a gift. Paper piecing produces sharp, clean lines in a very simple way. Jackie Kunkel over at Canton Village Quilt Works has a very nice tutorial on how to paper piece if you don’t really know how to do it. Jackie’s Craftsy classes are the best way to learn the process.

Here’s how I quilted it using my open toe free motion foot:

  • Stitched in the ditch around the flying geese.
  • Stitched Loopy Line in the background.
  • Stitched the border design like the other blocks.
