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.

Coordinated fabrics

Admiral blue, aqua, porcelain, strawberry.
