These mini blocks are 1 1/2″ and 2″ finished. They’re a lot of fun to make. You can use them as magnets or brooches or anything that takes your fancy.
The video demonstrates how to make the blocks with foundation piecing.
In such small sizes I find it’s a lot easier to get an accurate block than using traditional piecing.
On next video we’ll make a quilt with the brooch templates. Stay tuned!
But first let’s make the blocks!

Foundation piecing paper
I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick.
You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.
Foundation paper ruler
Note: I recently started to use an Add a quarter ruler, the yellow ruler in the video, after some followers recommended it and I have to say it’s a true time saver.
