Block Rock’n Week 8 – Garfunkel

by Julie Hirt

Are you having a good weekend? I am – our deck is almost done!  Thank goodness.

Now onto the good stuff… here is the Garfunkel block.



There is a variation to this block. You can make the center hexagon solid or like this:


The template has the optional area marked.  If you choose to make the first variation be sure your fabric covers the entire center piece (both 8 and 8b).

I looove Paul Simon!  As soon as I made this block the name Garfunkel just fit.   My musical tastes are all over the board.  Maybe it’s because I grew up listening to their music that makes me love them so much?

Couple of my favorites.

  1. I love your Garfunkel block! I grew up listening to those guys! Love it!

  2. Just found your site from a link on Fave quilts. you are so talented and love the paper pieced blocks of the block rock’n series. Block 8 seems hard because I’m so new to paper piecing and will have to play with the 8a 8b center technique.
