Old Grist Mill - NEW Form of Foundation Paper Piecing (Picture Piecing) Pattern - 17" x 19" Quilt Block
- Old Grist Mill - NEW Form of Foundation Paper Piecing Pattern - 17" x 19" Quilt Block -
The Old Grist Mill pattern was designed by Cynthia England. Her new Paper Piecing technique is called ‘Picture Piecing’. It is a slightly different approach to foundation paper piecing and the pattern packet contains detailed instructions on this new technique. However, the pattern can be used as is with the traditional sew & flip method of paper piecing.
The pattern packet contains a master pattern, a freezer paper pattern for cutting up and sewing on, a detailed fabric listing with measurements and all instructions necessary to construct this wonderful quilt block.
The finished size of the quilt is 17” x 19” and is for an intermediate level piecer.
This charming Grist Mill was inspired by the Glade Creek Grist Mill in Babcock State Park in West Virginia. It seems only fitting that the mill be created in cloth since it was used in the 1800s for fulling wool cloth, dyeing, spinning, weaving and milling grain.
