F²F³: FootSquare Freestyle season 3


By popular demand, F2F is back! I took a year out to work on other things, but I, and others, have missed the fun of working on this block swap, so it’s back – 9 members and 9 months of fun, starting tomorrow.

If you haven’t come across it before, FootSquare Freestyle is exactly what it says: foot-square (12 inch) blocks in any style.

    I´ll be following you all. Can´t wait to see all your blocks!!

  5. Has it been a whole year? Wow! That whizzed by!

      Actually, the last F2F session started in 2016!
      I’ve enjoyed having a look through block ideas and paper piecing patterns, and shock, horror! I’ve actually started work!
