Happy Block Heads Wednesday!
I am so glad you stopped by today to visit and print your Block 6 block pattern…now if you just want to print the pattern I have added a button for you to download the pattern…but if you want to stick around and see how I make 1/2″ finished HSTs so easily I will explain…and…I will be hosting an awesome give-a-way for those who hang around til the end!
I am stitching 4″ blocks and I also want to share my layout…you will notice that some of my blocks have light background and some have grey and blue…that is because my layout will have bands of colors…so where it is white, the backgrounds will be white…where they are grey, the backgrounds will be grey…and blue, blue backgrounds…this quilt will only be 40ish by 55ish…I may put a another border on after but I will have to get to that point first! I love seeing all your blocks on the FB group!
Now back to those little HSTs-(Half Square Triangles)…I use a product called Triangle papers…now this is not paper piecing because the paper comes off right after the HSTs are pressed…not after the whole block is stitched… Now because we are making 24 for this block this method makes it super fast and accurate…and it doesn’t matter what size blocks you are making…
Here is what size Triangle Papers you need for each of the block sizes for Block Heads..
4″ block- 1/2″ finished
6″block- 3/4″ finished
8″block- 1″ finished
12″block- 1 1/2″ finished
We do offer the Triangle paper in variety packs as well that is like 15 sheets of 4 different sizes…
Now here is a quick couple of videos on using the Triangle papers…they are not the best but you will get the idea…
I moved the videos to a different post… with so much traffic today I think it will be better…if you cannot watch them…wait until the site is not so busy…and I have added them to Moda Block Heads Facebook
All my blocks so far…
Now I have a great give-a-way….Please leave a comment at the end of this page for a chance to win this Moda bag…signed by all the designers…. and…. Josh Dunn and I even got Jen Kingwell’s hubby Richard to sign it too!!! The baag is filled with Mini Charms…a couple of stickers and a sewing machine pin!
Here is the line-up…make a note of where you are heading to next week!
