This is a great project block for beginners and more advanced paper piercers alike. For the beginner there aren’t too many small pieces and only two sections to join and for the more advanced you can challenge yourself with some tiny piecing or just enjoy ta quick and satisfying make.
This pattern assumes that you already know how to paper piece so there are no FPP technique tips included with the instructions HOWEVER, I have filmed a demonstration video of me making the 2″ version. You can see in real time how to make the block and you’ll pick up lots of tips and techniques!
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!
