Hello there! I hope everyone is enjoying the cool and merry season. Sorry there was a long break to this #handsewpatchwork sew-a-long. After we came back from a short holiday in Taiwan, my kids took turns to fall sick. Two weeks of sleepless nights is no fun at all! While I stayed up to take temperature, sponge and feed my kids, I worked on this block under the dim lights.
I just wished to get it done so I did not bother to take pictures of the sewing steps. So rather, for this block, I'll post the page taken from the book. The pictures are pretty easy to understand even though the instructions are in Japanese.
This Peter's Paintbox block is not difficult to sew. No appliqué, Y-seams or curves. Just sewing from end to end. A few more templates to cut so be mindful during cutting and arranging!

**note: for templates 1 and 2, remember to flip before tracing on fabric.*
^^For cross referencing if you have the book, this patchwork block is at page 165.
