This is a paper-pieced pattern for a single Union Jack block. It was inspired by a traditionally pieced Union Jack pattern by my friend Molli Sparkles.
The pattern is for the block only, with instructions on how to assemble it. It also includes pre-cutting fabric instructions to make assembly easier, and to minimize bias edges in the corners of the finished blocks.
The pattern assumes you have knowledge on how to do foundation paper-piecing (FPP) and does not include generic paper-piecing “how-to” instructions – please refer to my book Quilt Talk for detailed paper-piecing instructions.
Finished Union Jack block is 7 1/2” x 15 1/2”
