Promises – Mystery BOM Month 3

I’m a day late posting this month’s mystery block so please accept my apologies if you were waiting with baited breath. 

This month we are English Paper piecing a block that I’m calling Promises.

 I’ve prepared templates in two sizes this month: 6″ and 12″ so you have options for different projects. As usual there is a secondary pattern when multiple blocks are pieced together.
Some of the piecing is a bit fiddly but I hope you’ll think it’s worth a try. I recommend starting with the pieced kites. The templates are the finished size so you need to add your seam allowances to the fabric when cutting them out.
 This is how I pieced the rest of the block.
One quarter done then repeat the process to add the remaining sections. Please excuse the bumpy circle in the middle of the finished block, I haven’t removed the papers yet. You’ll find the information sheet, colouring sheet and templates on the website.
I was thrilled to find Wendy‘s Rolling in the clover block in our Flickr group again this month! It’s nice to know I’m not sewing alone 🙂 
If you decide to join in I’d love to see your versions and it would be great to be able to share some more of your work here along with our Flickr group and of course on Instagram #nelliesnicetiesmysterybom. Tell your friends, the more the merrier 🙂 Catch you soon x
