The final round consist of 14 checkerboard blocks as shown in the image below. The download includes both paper templates and directions for strip piecing (patchwork) the blocks. Remove any paper that remains in the quilt back.

Saint paddy piecing

Choosing to FPP round 4 will take longer than following the strip piecing (Patchwork Only in dowload) method. However, your blocks will be more accurate and stabilized (by the paper) for adding them to the quilt top, then adding the outside border.

Using strips for foundation paper piecing (following Paper Piecing Only in download) to piece the paper templates will speed up the method since there is no additional cutting needed. See my Youtube page for tutorials.

The pages are labeled for both methods with cutting dimensions. Locate the page labeled “Paper Piecing Only” or “Patchwork Only”, depending on the piecing method you have decided on.

Making the blocks

Patchwork Only-You will need two of each sets shown in Fig 1 and Fig 2.

Fabric Used in my quilt

Saint Paddy is my Island Batik May Challenge quilt. In case you don’t know, May is a blog hop month showcasing all of the new Island Batik Collections shipping to shops this month. In the Island Batik Ambassador box 1 I received a half yard bundle of The Grove designed by Kathy Engle for Quilters’ Treasure Chest.

It is a collection of 20 fabrics including teal and green that are so pretty to the naked eye. Visit the Store Locator to find a shop near you who carries Island Batik. To find a shop who is carrying The Grove visit the Fabric Finder. The Grove will be available in yardage, 2 1/2″ strips, and 10″ squares.
