Free Paper Piecing Pattern: Daisy Star Block

I drew this up the other day on Electric Quilt. Of course it is unfinished, so the edges will meet the side points. It’s actually quite an easy block to do and consists of four pieces. There are loads of tutorials on the internet for how to paper piece so I’m not even going to attempt to talk you through it as it would be rubbish in comparison, however I will say that to match the four main segments up after piecing the other bits, I like to keep the paper in, trim to an exact 1/4″ seam allowance along the edges to be joined, pin through the layers at the points to make sure they match and then pull out the paper before stitching them together.

For the template, just click here, it’s sized to a 6″ block but feel free to size it to whatever you like!

You will need Adobe Reader to open this file. Go ahead, make this block into quilts, bags or anything you wish, just please don’t sell my actual pattern, cos I’m letting you have it for free…

And because I haven’t shared a picture of my animals for a bit, here’s Fletcher in my sewing room…

    Hi Kerry, thank you for this!! It’s brilliant!! As a complete beginner I am going to have to save it for when I have had a bit more experience. I only started quilting because of your hexagonal quilt instructions and now I’m hooked! Love doggy by the way! Mx

    Hi Donna, I’ve emailed you the file and fixed the link- it got upset during the blog move! Hopefully all should be working now.

    Hi Kerry, I am very pleased to have found your Blog about your AEG sewing machine. I have just purchaesd one, and although I am sure it will be a good buy when I get accustomed to it, right now I wonder if I have made the right choice. I was having a look round the machine and like you, I dropped the feed dogs and hey presto….how do you get them back up!! I have spent about 3 hours on my PC and going back to my machine. I was about to ring AEG when I found your page and there was the answer to my problem….they go back automatically. Thank you for your help.
