Triangle log cabin quilt block – video tutorial

Today I’m posting a tutorial for a foundation piecing block. I know many of you aren’t fond of the technique though I really think you should give it a go because it opens up a lot of possibilities. And just look at the beautiful scrappy quilts you can make with all those scraps you’ve saved up!

Let’s learn to make the block with this video demonstration:

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. 

Or you can use freezer paper instead and save lots of paper.

See a demo on how to use freezer paper for foundation piecing:
