This is the seventh block in the Mysteries Down Under quilt.
The video demonstrates how to make this block using a foundation paper piecing technique with freezer paper.
The beauty of this technique is that you can reuse your template many times and there’s no sewing on the paper.
But don’t worry if you can’t use this technique for whatever reason because traditional foundation paper templates and traditional templates are also provided for download below.
Note: For the Mysteries Down Under quilt you need to make this block 4 times.
How to make a heart block
The pdf contains one foundation paper piecing template and a set of traditional templates.
For the Mysteries Down Under quilt make 4 units using either method.
If using freezer paper, trace the foundation paper template onto freezer paper once and reuse.

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.
