Two stars, 2 techniques.
Freezer paper foundation piecing
To make Mill and Stars block we’ll learn a foundation piecing technique that uses freezer paper.
Freezer paper templates are reusable because you don’t need to stitch through the paper. And removing the paper is a breeze! I hope you enjoy this technique.
Pattern suggestions for these 2 blocks
Block 1: Bijoux quilt pattern
The pattern includes all the fabric needs and assembly instructions as well as the paper templates for foundation piecing featured on the video as well as traditional templates.
For regular paper piecing you’ll have to use all four pieces in the template.
Block 2: 6-pointed star
This 6-pointed star technique, developed in 1991 by Marci Baker, is from the book Oh My Stars! which has 14 different projects. Check it out!
On the video I use a 60 degree ruler. While a 60 degree ruler isn’t necessary, if you intend to cut a lot of 60 degree triangles, it can be a god investment.
