Garden Party Blog Hop – Day 4

Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 4 of Sewhooked’s Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop!

We’re celebrating my birthday with a free pattern every day during the month of April! Check back each day for a new pattern,  all with a Garden Party theme! You can find a complete list of previous Garden Party bloggers at the end of this post.

We’ll be having a weekly drawing here on Sewhooked (keep scrolling for our first prize!) and many of the designers will be having sales, specials and giveaways…what a great way to celebrate my birthday!

      Hi Sandra,

      I recommend cutting out all the pieces and laying them out in order. Keep in mind that the pattern is a mirror image of the finished block.

      I sure hope that helps!
