Moda Blockheads 4: (Block 22)
New block day for Moda Blockheads 4 free block of the week! Today’s block is brought to us from Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life. Block 22 is “Star Patch.” Be sure to visit Sherri’s blog to download the free pattern and get tips + tricks from her.
Block 22: “Star Patch”
This was a pretty quick block to turn out. To make the quarter-square triangles (QSTs), I started out with squares 1″ larger than what the finished QSTs needed to be. This allows you to square up along the way. I did something a little different with fabric placement – I used the same pale pink print on both sides of the QST instead of matching the outside triangle to the background.
I’m using a couple different collections to showcase these blocks and am excited to figure out the final quilt top assembly soon! For the first block, I’m using the pinks and greens of my Love Note collection.
The second set (below) is made in Flower Pot fabric. I made the 4.5″ finished version of the blocks in both fabric sets.
