This makes a 12" or 8" block and is paper pieced!...a 12" version of regular piecing templates is also available! This block originated in (about) 1920!

Please abide by the Terms and Conditions of use! :o)

Click here for the 12" pp templates!

or click here for 8" pp temps!

or HERE for regular 12" templates!

The first thing that I would recommend that you do, is go to the Practice Paper Piecing Page.  When you feel comfy with paper piecing, come on back and try a Tallahassee Block! You will need to print out four copies of the 12" pp template page, or two copies of the 8" pp template page, or ONE copy of the 12" regular template pages per block you want to make on very lightweight paper.


INTRODUCING FEEDSACKS!...more commonly thought of as the cloth bags that held grain and such, as shown in the wallpaper of this page, Feedsacks were/are much more! Produced from the late 1800's through the 1940's Feedsacks came in a multitude of prints and colors, and found their way into many articles of clothing and home decor. To read a bit more about this, go see Jane Clark Stapel's page on the HISTORY of feedsacks! Jane is the founder of "The Feedsack Club" So...if you like that antique-y's the way to go!---now on to the pattern!

After your units are paper or regular four quadrants together to make a corner unit, as shown at far left...then four quads together to make the block!   ...on to Page 2!
