This month’s block features the Eiffel Tower, an iconic symbol of Paris, France.

The Tower was built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 Universal Exposition, which was to celebrate the 100th years anniversary of the French Revolution.

Here’s a fun fact… the Eiffel Tower was only intended to last 20 years.

Let’s get started!

Here are some tips as you piece your Eiffel Tower block. If you need a little bit of extra help with foundation paper piecing, be sure to check out this video tutorial/mini-class.
