The Desperate Housewife’s Quilt – Week 45 Mesh

Welcome to week 45 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.
Be sure to visit this week’s Guest Blogger and their wonderful block.
(N.B Due to the differences in time and date zones, the guest blogger’s block may not appear at the time of the initial posting)

This weeks guest is Jess Frost from The Elven Garden. Jess is presenting the Woven Chevron Block. A great block made from HST’s, QST’s and squares.
We are chained to the non important things of life and forget to free ourselves with simplest of things.


  • The foundation templates can be found here. Do not ‘Fit to page’ or scale when printing.
