|Block 41 - Diamond Ring|
Today’s block marks a first for me in two respects. Firstly (excuse the pun) I created a block from Kumiko Fujita’s “318 Patchwork Patterns” book. This book is full of delightful little designs that you can copy and enlarge. Most are then hand-stitched or patchworked. However, I wanted to keep Kumiko’s block no. 89 at the original size (under 2½”) so I decided to paper-piece it.

And this brings me onto my second ‘first’ – I converted the patchwork pattern into a paper-pieced pattern. Thankfully, it was quite a simple pattern to convert due to the limited number of pieces involved. And the piecing went together really easily too.
