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