Foundation piecing with freezer paper - Mysteries Down Under - video tutorial

Block 11 – Mills and stars quilt block – Mysteries Down Under quilt

This is the eleventh block in the Mysteries Down Under quilt.

To make this block we’ll learn a foundation piecing technique that uses freezer paper.

Download, print the template and trace just one piece onto freezer paper.

The freezer paper is reusable because you don’t need to stitch through the paper. And removing the paper is a breeze! I hope you enjoy this technique.

For regular paper piecing you’ll have to use all four pieces in the template.

  1. I love your Youtube tutorials, because they are so easy to follow. This pattern with an all white background is called Hummingbird, though I couldn’t tell you why, and it is my favorite. I will be using your pattern and tutorial soon to use up my scraps and make hummingbirds the easy way! THANK YOU!
