Paper Piecing Block of the Month- April



Welcome to the fourth of 12 Foundation Paper Piecing Block of the Month adventures!

One choice for April will be creating the spool of thread block from Kimberbell’s Sew It by Number: Paper-Piecing Throughout the Year.  You can personalize this spool with fabric and finishing details of your choosing.  Will you make this as a door decoration?  An adorable pincushion?
