    Default Euclid Avenue in cool colors

    This is the Euclid Avenue pattern by Sassafras Lane Designs. It is a foundation pieced quilt. I decided to use freezer paper piecing because I hate ripping the paper off of paper pieced foundations. You fold the freezer paper along the sew line and sew right next to the fold. No paper to rip off and you can reuse the freezer paper foundations again and again (I get about 8 uses per freezer paper foundation.)

    This is a very beginner friendly foundation pattern. You only need to sew three straight lines from one edge to the other edge to make this block. The other block is a mirror or reverse image.

    This simple block when combined together and rotated makes wonderful secondary patterns. Isn't that cool.

    When I get to a paper pieced quilt it will be with freezer paper. Tried it once and was not at all fond of picking off paper.

    I like your quilt and the block seems easy although the paper method is a bit laborious, good work and very nice colors

    You are really coming along on that and it looks great! Are you going to have border or no border?

    No border. It is at its finished size.
