I’d like to share my latest paper pieced block pattern with you today…just in time for Easter and spring in general! This is Nibbles, a little bunny who can’t stay away from the carrots in the garden. There is so much room for whimsy in this block, especially in the soil. I used this great burrow print in my stash. It’s an older print by Birch Fabrics. I am not sure if you can find it anymore but I swear that I have seen some cute worm prints that could also work. And honestly, the burrow print was just a lucky find in my stash. When I mocked up this design, I planned to use a Grunge brown for soil and a lighter brown for the bunny. That will work too!
I made this block 10″, the same size as all my garden themed blocks above so that they can be used together. If you prefer to use a 12″ standard block size, simply enlarge your pattern pieces by 120% on the photocopier. Take note that the seam allowance as marked on the outer edges of each section will also be enlarged. When you are trimming your sections down, just make sure you trim to 1/4″ rather than following that new seam allowance line.
I really had fun sewing this block and I hope you will too! The links in my side bar will bring you to my Pattern Shop here on my blog, Etsy or Craftsy. The pattern is now available for sale in all those places.
I can’t wait to see your version. If you make one use the hashtag #nibblesquiltblock.
