Block 3 – Starburst quilt block – Mysteries Down Under quilt

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.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“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.
