This is the third block in the Mysteries Down Under quilt.
The video tutorial demonstrates foundation piecing using freezer paper. It’s the perfect opportunity to learn foundation piecing with this super easy block.
If you don’t have any freezer paper you can either do regular foundation piecing or just traditional piecing. Get the templates below.
You need to make 4 pieces to make one block.

The pdf contains 1 template for foundation piecing and the templates for traditional piecing.
For regular foundation piecing, print the template 4 times.
For freezer paper foundation piecing, trace the paper piecing template once onto freezer paper and reuse for the 4 pieces.
For traditional piecing use the templates to cut 4 pieces of each shape.

New book out on December 3
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
You can preorder on Amazon.
Or preorder on Bookdepository and get it delivered for free.
