- Any scraps from the scrap bin. I pieced scraps together to make my own ‘fabric’. Sew pieces together to make blocks larger than the selected section in the foundation template. Make sure you avoid seams close to other seams or it will get bulky.
- Use a very small stitch so you can rip off the paper easily when done
- Cut your seams back to 1/4″as you go
- Press with a dry iron as you go

I hope you enjoyed todays block. Next week I will doing a scrappy log cabin variation.
The wonderful people at Aurifil have sent me some sample packs of their beautiful thread. I am sure once you try Aurifil you fill your sewing room shelves with this thread.
Anyone who has made a Desperate Housewife block (mine or guests) and posted it in the Flickr group is eligible to win one of these packs. I will be looking through the Flickr group and giving one pack away a week for the next 5 weeks.
