Happy Colors And A Cheerful Heart Is Good For The Soul.

Moda Block Heads 4: Block 5


We've made it to week 5 with our Moda Block Heads Sew Along! Block #5, "Two of Five" is brought to you by Barb Groves of Me and My Sister Designs. You can download the instructions to this block on the Moda blog.

My block is made with fabrics from the Paisley Rose collection which is in shops now. I took the opportunity to feature the roses on the center stage. I chose a low volume rose print from the Garden Society collection for the background. It's all about the roses this week! 

For any of you who curse Half Square Triangles (HST), I can relate!  They can change shape after you iron them.  Another issue that can arise if you trim them too small, you loose your seam allowance and perfect points. However, with practice they get easier. Experiment with cutting your squares 1/4" to 1/2" larger than the cutting directions. This will give you some extra wiggle room and you'll be able to trim the perfect (HST).
