This makes a 12" block, and is part paper piecing, part regular templates! ...and I think I am going to HAVE to do an appliqué of this Toad later on! :o)

The first thing that I would recommend that you do, is go to the Practice Paper Piecing Page. When you feel comfy with paper piecing, come on back and try the Toad in The Puddle! You will need to print out four copies of the paper pieced flying geese unit, and each of the triangles, but only ONE  copy of the square per block you want to make. Use the triangles and the square to make templates, and  use those templates to cut out the triangles and the square.( 4 small triangles, and 4 large triangles)



When you have your paper piecing done, join a small Color 2 triangle to the tip of each of the four flying geese units, right sides together, and using a SCANT 1/4" seam. Press seams towards outer triangles...

Then sew a large Color 2 triangle to each side of two of the previously made units, again using SCANT 1/4" seams. Press seams towards outer triangles...

Next sew the center square between the remaining two flying geese units, pressing seams towards inner square...

...on to  Page 2!
