Paper Piecing Vintage – August

August Paper Piecing Vintage Block


Welcome to August!

It’s hard to believe, but after today’s update, there are only four more blocks to go in Paper Piecing Vintage!

Today, I bring you a slightly different take on a very classic block, the Spider Web. I call mine Caught in the Web!

As with all the blocks from PPVCaught in the Web is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.

Your August PPV update includes a surprise Bonus Block (not pictured)!

August PPV, helpful hint
Save some time by following these bonus directions:

  • The 12″ pattern includes only one page. Make four copies and lay out the pieces following the included lettered units and using the 6″ pattern as a guideline.
  • For simple pre-cutting, use a strip of fabric and alternate pieces for triangles (see photo). This works on either size block and for many other PPV designs, too!
  • Save time by chain piecing like pattern pieces.
  • Have fun!
