Click HERE to download and print the County Fair Foundation Pattern.

**You will want to Download the file and then print the .pdf file.  When you print, make sure that scaling is turned off enabling the document to print at 100%.  Take a moment to measure.  The Solid Line along the bottom edge of section A should measure 6".  If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**

Don't forget to come back and post the link to your blocks so I can see them.  I LOVE to see them!!  Don't have a blog or don't have time to post?  Just email me a picture and I'll get it uploaded.  I’ve also set up a Flickr Group if you’re interested!

I have just completed all of the February blocks (and one May block, due to fabric issues with the other months which have been resolved). I absolutely love paper piecing and I'm going to add on to my 'barn' collection of blocks soon. To see all completed blocks and other projects, visit my blog at That, too, is a work in progress
