Block 10 - Tiny Piecing Sampler


I really love this block. I think the fun floral fabric is the main reason I like it so much. It’s a scrap that I have held onto for years, just waiting for the perfect project. And now I finally used it! This week, while going through your scrap basket, keep an eye out for larger scale prints you can incorporate.

The instructions for 6” and 12” blocks are a bit different this week. The diagrams for the 6” block are on the left and the diagrams for the 12” block are on the right.


(Here are the links for all the other blocks in the Tiny Piecing Sampler and the Shop where you can purchase the Scrappy Triangle foundations.)
