PIEC­ING THE ROW

2

Re­peat steps 1–9 of our FPP tu­to­rial to piece one Large Mush­room Block FPP tem­plate, sewing the fab­rics in place in nu­mer­i­cal or­der. Re­peat to piece a to­tal of five Large Mush­room blocks.

Re­peat steps 1–7 of our FPP tu­to­rial to piece one each of the Small Mush­room Block Sec­tions A and B FPP tem­plates, sewing the fab­rics in place in or­der.

Ar­range the two sec­tions with Sec­tion A on the left and Sec­tion B on the right. Pin to­gether care­fully match­ing the block edges.

Re­turn your stitch length to its nor­mal length for piec­ing. Sew the pinned Sec­tions A and B to­gether, then press the seam open. Trim around the outer dashed line of the paper tem­plates.

6

Re­move the tem­plates to com­plete one Small Mush­room Left block.

Re­peat steps 3–6 to make a to­tal of two Small Mush­room Left blocks.
