my first Ringo Pie block was part of my quilting journey and my love of paper piecing.
I knew I wanted my favourite Kumiko Fujita ruler print, ( you can find some here). I have it in 4 colour ways- one for each spool and I wanted vintage prints for the spool centres- many of these came from swaps with the lovely Chase.
Leila wanted 6" finished blocks for a sampler quilt she is planning so this block is small but it was intricate with 16 Y seams! I drew the block on freezer paper- you can see the book diagram which gives block proportions and also a picture of the assembled block reverse side which is most helpful.
I am using the same book to inspire me for Pillow talk 9 swap. I have an amazing partner, and I am hoping that this block will do the trick. I plan for 9 of these and you can see, Y seams again so I need to get on with it!
