Kittenopolis with Helen Butcher
Classes with Helen Butcher • Educational, G, 01-Oct-2018
This is a very easy improve block that Helen shares with us. She starts with two x 9" squares, but larger would work too, and then just slices through!
As you sew the pieces together, so you will end up with wonky edges. At the end you just trim up to create a perfect square.
The smaller quilt or cushion blocks are made from 5" squares.
In addition, when you sew the cats together, they are sewn with diagonal rows.
The pattern is available to buy from Helen's website.
