Wonky Beach House Quilt Block
I first saw this technique in RaNae Merrill's book Simply Amazing Spiral Quilts. I modified it slightly by using freezer paper. This is a simple, fool proof method for cutting your FPP fabric pieces. If you use this technique you're less likely to have frustrating surprises i.e. holes, splits, etc. when you go to flip your fabric piece over. It takes a little extra time but it's well worth it. Also, some people think it wastes fabric. It may seem like it, but following this technique always gives you just the right size piece you need.
