Welcome to week 33 of the ‘The Desperate Housewife’s Quilt’. Todays block is about foundation piecing. Remember, this is not a quilt-a-long. Just follow the blog every week and pick and choose which blocks you would like to make. I will be injecting some uniqueness into traditional blocks, applique, three dimensional, crazy and thread-art blocks. If you make a block please post it on the Flickr group for everyone to enjoy. Also, I have this nifty button under each post that allows you to save the post as a PDF.
- Paper Piece the three section from using the template foundations found here, here and here. Remember not to ‘Scale’ or fit to page when printing.
- Sew the three sections together as shown in diagram below

I hope you have enjoyed this weeks block. Next week, I will be exploring piecing with 1.5″ squares.
