Block Finishing

Edyta's Tip: Keep your ruler or templates handy after cutting.

They are the perfect tool to help you precisely mark your sewing points.

First mark your 1/4" points and arrange your pieces: dark blue piece on the top,

light fabric piece in the middle, and a light blue piece on each side.

Position the dark blue piece over the light fabric piece right sides together.

Pin and sew.

Press your seam open.

Place the light blue piece over the unit right sides together.

Pin and sew.

Press your seam towards the light blue.

Position and sew second light blue piece as shown above.

Sew and press seams towards the light blue.


Watch our video for more details.

Use your template A or ruler to trim.
