This is a paper pieced block that Jennifer has written in two versions; New Beginner and Confident Beginner. Thank you Jennifer, as I am definitely a newbie paper piecer!
Jennifer is an experienced paper piecer who knows how to guide you well. Her blog has all the info and accompanying photographs you will need to succeed in making your Autumn leaf.
If you are new to paper piecing, I encourage you take the plunge and make this pretty block. When you are finished, it is such a satisfying feeling to say “Yea! I can paper piece now too!”
I’m proud to show you mine :)
I made my block in homage to my favorite fall leaves, the ones that have orange, red and still some of their pretty greens. I’m excited to see all the fabric colors and patterns everyone chooses to make this cheerful block! 🍁
