in all my pictures to show you the step by step.
But do not worry if you are not using this bundle, I would love to still inspire you every week,
by sharing multiple color options for the fun and simple blocks.
You can use those color options as inspiration for placement of your fabrics.
For Week 2, you will need:
(These notions are just my recommendations)
• Fabrics (4 medium/dark pieces) and 1 light background

Edyta’s Tip: Always have a stash of fresh blades for your rotary and remember to change yours often. for the cleanest cuts.
