Moda Block Heads Round 2

My appointment was cancelled this morning so I made good use of the extra time and caught up on the Moda Block Head blocks.

IMG_1731Block 29 is a 6″ block.  It is called Courthouse Step and was designed by Carrie Nelson.  This was a quick block to make.  There were only nine pieces and all straight sewing.

 

 

IMG_1732Block 30 is an 18″ block.  It is called Gaudi and was designed by Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic.  This took a little longer to piece than block 29.  The triangle pieces were pieced in strip sets and then trimmed to the triangle.  The center was a square in a square unit.  The measurements in the instructions were not right, but I was able to adjust and make the  center unit the right size.  It called for  2″ squares to flip and sew on a 3 1/2″ base, when it meant to add triangles to all four sides of the center 3 1/2″  square.   If I had followed the instructions, the center would have finished at 3 1/2″square. It needed to be 4 3/4″ which is the same size as the ends of the  larger cross pieces.

When all the Moda blocks are finished, we are going to be given a diagram on how to set all the blocks.  Most of the blocks are 6″ finished size, but there are several that are bigger and even one that is a rectangle. I’ve enjoyed the Moda Blockhead blocks of the week.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
