Sew Out Loud! QAL Keep Calm block

It’s finally my turn in {Sew Out Loud} Quilt Along.

 
I designed a quite simple block. You may know the British quote „Keep Calm and Carry On“. There are several cute modifications out there. I transformed it to „Keep Calm and Rip On“ – we all have to rip out seams one day ;)

You can download the paper piecing templates here.

Block 1

After you have sewn the PP parts just add a bit of background fabrics around them to form your block. So you can make the block the size you want (I made mine 12″x12″).

You can hand embroider the written words. I thread painted mine with the free motion feed of my machine. I interfaced the background of the block with a fusible interfacing to give support. You can use my PDF print as a template or draw your own hand writing.

Block 7 - Keep Calm and Rip On

Fat Quarter Shop has generously sponsored fabrics for this QAL. Check out their amazing fabrics!

Please show your finished blocks in our Flickr group.

Here is another colour way I made for testing my pattern.

Thanks and have fun!
