Circular template – the base of a mug is a great size!

Foundation Pieced Strippy Block with Reverse Appliqué Circle

Multiple fabric strips of various lengths and widths from short and fat to long and skinny and everything in between. Various weights and types of fabric are fine to use.

4 x 12” square of lightweight fabric – calico or something like that, a bed sheet etc. even paper would do but you then have to take that out ☹

Two lots of 18 x 3” squares of fabric for one hacked block. One plain and one print would be perfect.

HST Hack with Reverse Appliqué Circle

10 6” squares of contrasting fabric.

Create 20 HSTs join in rows, hack the rows and join and rehack.
