...and now I am hooked!! I love all those gorgeous perfect points that can be easily achieved with foundation piecing.
I found this wonderful little block called Colourwheel Geese over at Piece by Number, it's a free template you can download. (They also have some fabulous templates in their Etsy shop). I printed the template off, then traced it onto the dull side of the freezer paper and went from there.
I don't know how this method would work for very skinny, very spiky points, but I will certainly try it sometime and let you know.
Yesterday I spied Dan's (Piece and Press) New York Beauty cushion he has made using foundation piecing, how divine...

Dan has generously drawn up the foundation piecing templates for his stunning cushion, and made them available from his post here. Don't mind if I do, thank you Dan, great templates! You will be able to see more of these beauties in Dan's flickr group here. (Hopefully I will get one there soon!!).
Yes, there will be many more attempts at freezer paper foundation piecing (what a mouthful) over here in the next few months. So have you tried either method before? Do you love/hate it? I would love to hear what you think about it. xo
