FWSQ Week 1

This weeks first block is CHURN DASH. 

This block is a great one to get started on those Thangles. For this block you will need your 2" pack. 

After cutting your pieces and making those HST's you will join each square into a row of 3 and then join the three rows together. 

Block 2 is WRENCH! 

Yep, you guessed it. Same pattern just different fabric placement. I will try to pair up the blocks so that you can either be using the same templates or rotary cutting measurements each week. 

Now if you notice in my Wrench block I have used a directional fabric. If you are using a directional print, background or foreground, and want it all 'up the right way' you can achieve this by flipping a thangle  over and sewing it right side down. You may like to trace the lines to the back of the thangle if you are having trouble seeing the lines through the paper. IE Sew one thangle paper the right way and the other paper the flipped way. 

Don't forget, to get this weeks rotary cutting instructions or paper piecing templates, email me at with your purchase receipt of the book and I will send out those details.
