This pattern features the same block in three different sizes. I would recommend for a beginner to start with the 8″ version of the block as the pieces are larger in size. There are a couple of smaller pieces (particularly when it comes to the 4″ block) and there are a few seams to match when joining sections (refer to green circles on page 3), but if you take your time, it is achievable.
This pattern assumes that you already know how to paper piece so there are no FPP technique tips included with the instructions (see below for links to tutorials or enrol onto the On Demand Class).
Have a look at the Gallery of Makes to see how some other people have made theirs. Message me if you would like yours included!
