Here are two paper pieced Baby Boot foundations for you to print out. To construct the Baby Boots, sew each of the three foundation section parts and then sew the three sections together. There are foundations for both left facing and right facing boots.
The finished Baby Boot block is supposed to be 4-inches by 4-inches. The foundations have a 1/4-inch seam allowance all around. Print out copies right from this page. Different computers and different printers may give slightly different sizes.
I used two of the Baby Boots in the center of a little baby quilt top which had "grownup" boots all around. The mom and dad are rodeo riders so it was an appropriate welcome for their little cowboy.
