Sewcialites 2: (Block 4)
Block 4: “Flirty”
This block is perfect for any skill level with its beginner half-square triangle technique. Because of the block’s simplicity, it’s a great opportunity to showcase big, bold fabric prints.
The first block is mocked up in Country Rose fabric – out in shops now. This is scaled to represent the 6″ finished block size. I thought it was a great opportunity to showcase the larger floral mixed with a big of gingham in the center. It’s so cheery in this golden yellow color.
The second digital mockup is made up in Christmas Eve fabrics (shipping May 2023). I decided to use the lighter green for a background and highlight some of the pale prints. If using unidirectional prints like I did with the stripe – just pay attention to the direction of the marked diagonal line when making the HSTs (make sure they are identical).
The FREE “Flirty” block pattern will be made available on the Jolly Jabber blog here first (typically 8 am CST), but I’ll add the link to the button below as soon as it’s available so you can access it here:
