Free Pattern 12" Block: Zig Zag

This week's free 12" block pattern from Berrima Patchwork is called Zig Zag. Using small prints means that it covers up the joins. There are two different ways that you can piece the triangles and the pattern shows you the two different methods.

Free 12" Block: Woven Ribbons

This week’s free 12" pattern is now available for downloading. Woven Ribbons is one of the most easier patterns to sew up and is fantastic as a beginner's block. It is all straight squares and rectangles and I love how it can create an illusion to the eye depending on the type of fabrics that you use.
Remember you can view all the free patterns on our website by using the link below. They all only take a small amount of time to sew up and sew several up for an easy quilt.

Free Pattern 12" Block: Indian Star

This week's free 12" Block from Berrima Patchwork has been made up in the brand new fabric (only arrived in the store on Friday!) from Leesa Chandler, called Passage to India. Leesa has designed this fabric for Robert Kaufman and is the first in her collection for the Culture Club. As the range is inspired by India I called this block Indian Star.

This block features a partial seam, don't panic I have included step by step photos on how to sew a partial seam. The block goes together very easily. Enjoy
