Rotary Cutting for Foundation Paper Piecing
Squares: cut (9) 2" squares in blue, (8) 2" squares in yellow and (4) 2" squares in pink
Triangles: cut (2) 2" squares in blue and subcut diagonally to make 4 half square triangles in total. repeat the same quantities in pink.
Top tips for this block :
- Pre-cut all pieces
- Use a water based glue stick. I use Sewline, to stick the first piece of each section
- Chain piece
- Follow the order on the foundation pattern, the seams will nest together when joined
The finished block is not unlike a little picnic blanket which links nicely with the farmer's wife letter (p. 132) reminiscing over meals eaten outside.Hannah from Quirky Hannah is guest blogger for this block. Here's mine:

Gracie's Schoolhouse Classics Red Dotty Blossoms
I foundation pieced this block and it was a little tricky; those small angle tapering points are always hard with this technique and getting all the points to meet up on the outer sections needed careful pinning. I'll be sharing my tips on this block on my Periscope session today which you can catch afterwards for 24 hours- see the links below.
