String of Colored Lights


This PDF pattern collection is called “String of Colored Lights.”  The finished block measures 12″ x 7.”

This pattern comes with a few options. The original block, as pictured, is all paper pieced and measures 12” x 7” when finished. Due to the challenges presented by bulky seams, the pattern is also offered without the cord that runs from light to light. This makes piecing easier and the cord can be hand embroidered instead. And finally, mirror image pattern pieces for both versions are also provided so that you can alternate between the original block and its mirror image for a continuous chain of lights. This could be perfect for quilt borders or a table runner.


Pattern includes numbered, colored diagrams as well as mirror image pattern pieces, ready for foundation piecing. There are no Y seams in this block.  Basic paper piecing directions are not included.
