Indian Summer Paper-Pieced Block

My blogger friend at knitNkwilt posted about an interesting paper-pieced block called Indian Summer.  There’s a free downloadable pattern on Craftsy.com.  I like paper piecing for small projects and the 12-inch block plus a 2-inch border makes a piece that is perfect for my mini-rack….

…and for what we used to call a “stand cover” or table mat….

I was able to reduce my bags of black, white and red scraps a bit and have two pieces that will get a lot of use.

  1. I really like these. It’s amazing the different looks you’ve got and really think the block is cute under the apples.

  2. Oh, I liked the red one and then I saw the black one! These look great. There’s no way I’d make that block without paper-piecing, that’s for sure! Great job.

  3. Block reminds me of “Card Trick” which can be a doozie to piece — paper piecing would certainly make it easier. Like them all but the first red one is very striking.
