HERE ARE SOME QUICK TIPS:

STARCH first off!  Most Important…If you need to learn about starching go HERE for STARCH VIDEO

I like to cut my pieces to size unless they are HSTs or Square in a Square units…for this Moda Block Heads-Block 20 pattern the directions are written for flying geese with the sew and flip corner method…Not my favorite, so here are my cutting measurements for my 4″ block.  I also am using Triangle Paper to make perfect 1″ HSTs

Here is a video/post on how the Triangle Papers work.

Here is an idea of what I’m working on for a layout…Just playing so far…but liking how it is turning out…the setting directions will be offered later this summer…

Happy Block Heads Wednesday!..Wait…when you don’t follow the rules you have to wait til Friday to post! 

Here is another great Quilt Block FOR OUR QUILT ALONG PROJECT: dream 

Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along Project Block 16 featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean.
Moda Block Heads 3 Block 16, designed by Sherri McConnell…pieced by Lisa Bongean

I had to do it..I had to make 4 of these little blocks to make my 4″ block…I have so many little pieces in the blocks that it only makes sense to keep the little pieces all the way…I think this block is a Lisa Bongean’s Dream block…Thank you Sherri for naming it for me!  It is ALL Half Square Triangles…I love the number 3 therefore the HST is my dream unit.

My goal here is to show you how painless it is to stitch these little blocks using Triangle Papers…also keep in mind all my fabrics have been heavily STARCHED.  I think there is a misconception that just because they are tiny that they are fussy…really they are no big deal..

I used a total of 5 blues and one cream.

I figured out I need 16 HSTs A/B of the same two fabrics.( I had two extra when using the Charm Triangle paper shown)

I need 4 HSTs of A/B of each of 4 different fabrics…I used the same cream throught

I need 2 HST of C/D of four colors each…
Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along Project Block 16 featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean.I picked out all my triangle papers…

4″ Dream – quilt block was made with all  Indigo Gatherings Fabrics

Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along Project Block 16 featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean.Layered the Triangle Papers with my fabrics…light on top, right sides together.

Stitched on all the dashed lines…with a shorter stitch length…I have put together some quick videos….lol

Watch how I cut them apart…

Pressing and sorting…

 

Layout the triangles to form blocks…I do not remove dog-ears at this point.

Chain piecing HSTs…I do not pin them…just match them up…

Flip seams  by finger pressing (it is easy b/c they are starched) and stitch together to form 4 patch HST units

 

Press and then trim all the strings and dogears…then Layout and stitch with larger HST uni… I do not pin.  Layout each block again to make sure you have the orientation right..  Press seams in opposing directions and stitch together to make the blocks…Make 4.

 

 

Press last seam in each block open.  Match up blocks and pin the center and each seam in the blocks and the ends. Stitch last block seam open as well.

 

I got too excited and forgot to video the last couple of seams…but here is the finished block again…
