Paper Piecing
Part One

Knick Knack block 13: This little picture frame is empty - ready for you to insert a fussy-cut focus fabric image, a transfer print of a loved one or pet, perhaps an embroidery or cross stitch design? 

This block is paper pieced in one unit - no sub-units to assemble this time. The block should have a 1/4" seam allowance left around it and be sized to match the other blocks in the series. (most are using an 8 inch finished block size, thus 8.5 inches with seam allowances).

The blank picture frame looks like this in line form:


Here's a sample of a block in color with nothing in the frame:

But the fun is to insert a transfer photo or a photo printed with direct methods (See articles here on Transfer Printing and Direct Printing if you are unfamiliar with these techniques) and you can have a block that looks more like this one below to put on your Knick Knack Shelves:

for Grandma Victoria's Shelf!


 Here's an index to all the blocks in this series.

These blocks are all designed and images prepared by Susan Druding using Electric Quilt software.
