Surprise your fisherman friends with this quilt block! This paper pieced block stars a stunning ring of fish based on an 8 point star block, but with NO Y-Seams!
Dimensions of the block: 12 x 12 inches finished
This would make a great gift for your favorite fisherman or fisherwoman. Consider embellishing the quilting with motifs of fishing poles, fishing hooks, and bobbers and more fish.
A variation of this block is typically made with Y-seams which are difficult for many quilters. I was determined to make this pattern with no Y-seams. I hope you like the result. The foundation piecing of this quilt block ensures sharp points and provides flexibility to resize the blocks easily by adjusting the enlargement or reduction on a copy machine or printer. The block is 12 x 12 inches square finished.
This pattern is rated as Intermediate rather than Beginner due to having to piece together sub-blocks, but overall this is not a difficult pattern. The larger block size is very forgiving to those new to foundation piecing. General instructions for foundation piecing are not provided in this pattern but can be found in many places on the internet or in books at your favorite quilt store.
