template fun

I grabbed a few spikey pieces to sew together using the bloc loc templates. They are small and will finish at 2 1/2 inches square. They are very cute and easy to do. I cut mine from small leftover scrap pieces. I need to cut the other pieces I need so that I can see a star together.

Usually, I avoid trimming down, if I can, but, with this template it is easy and I end up with a perfect block.

I used the florabunda blocks as leader/ender  as I was sewing. I made three from this floral fabric.

Oh scrap


  1. I rather trim down then not have the piece large enough which happens frequently for me!

  2. Hi Maggie! I have some Bloc-Loc rulers but didn't know they made cute little templates as well. Those look like fun to work with. I can see a bigger block made with them alternating with a plain piece, in a nine-patch layout. That would look so cute. Love your leader/ender piecing project. It seems they get finished in no time that way. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I need to invest in those loc blocs, esp the flying geese ones.

  4. Neat blockloc trick. Your floribunda must be almost a top.

  5. I'm with you...not a fan of having to trim down, but I prefer to have extra to trim down so my blocks look great when they're done! And one of these days I'm definitely going to have to invest in some bloc loc rulers!
