C-12


Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 49
Method used: hand piecing

Stitching together Family Reunion was like piecing a miniature quilt.  All the different fabrics used in the nine patch blocks came from one piece of fabric, a piece of fabric made to look like patchwork.

Great idea to use that patchwork fabric!

Cute block! Of course we would never have guessed the little patches were from one fabric. I like the background too. Is that a Jo Morton?

Oooh, I've just made this one too! I really like the fabric, especially the way the block is called Family Reunion and the fabric has people in it!

I love these scrappy fabrics, and the sold squares ... that is the nicest fabric! Good choice!

That is a really great idea for using fabric. I thought when I saw the block it all came from a scrap bin.

Great fussy cutting. And how perfect that fabric is for this block!
