I recently acquired Cindy Shake's Polar Bear Swim wall hanging pattern and the pattern is unclear if the center block is done by paper piecing. The pattern has a template for the polar bear appliqué and also has a pattern for the center block, which consists of several free form like curves that make up a 9inch block. However, the sections in the center block are not numbered.
Has anyone made this pattern? If not, do you recommend that I paper piece the center block ( any tips on making the double curves) or should I cut the sections out of the pattern and use as templates?
Thanks so much! I appreciate everyone's guidance.
