Is everyone ready to show off their first block for the sew along? I’m so excited to see everyone’s fabric choices! Here’s mine:

Block 1273 from BlockBase+

My block finishes at 6″ and I used both the rotary cutting chart and the foundation pattern printouts to make my block. I use the dimensions from the rotary cutting chart to cut my patches, then I piece them together using the foundation pattern. I’m a *bit* of a perfectionist and using the foundation pattern is how I keep myself from ripping apart the block multiple times until I’m happy with my piecing! :-D

When you post your photo below, please tell us what size you made the block, which printout you used from BlockBase+, and anything else you’d like to share about the block!
