About the Techniques
We offer two piecing options for these ornaments: 1) Make units larger than necessary and cut them down to size or 2) foundation-piece. The cutting instructions for each ornament will work for either technique.
To foundation-piece, use your favorite method, or refer to following instructions for foundation-piecing basics.
