The block finished size is 3″ x 3″.
The video demonstrates how to make the block with foundation piecing. In such small sizes I find it’s a lot easier to get an accurate block that using traditional piecing. but traditional templates are also available on my Etsy shop.
I used regular copy paper but in small sizes it can be a bit thick.
You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.
Let’s get to it!
