MBH3: Blocks 13-17

Moda Block Heads 3 Blocks By Thistle Thicket Studio. www.thistlethicketstudio.com

I haven't sat down at the sewing machine for a couple of weeks. Wow! Where is the time going? I definitely seem to be busy but not much to show for it. Today I sat down to catch up with my Moda Block Heads 3 blocks and realized I haven't shown them for a few weeks here on the blog. They are coming along and I really like how they are looking in a grouping....

Block 13 is called The Baldwin by Jen Kingwell. I like the geometric design of this block. The paper piecing made this block a breeze.

Block 14, Summer Breeze, is by Joanna Figueroa. Those little half square triangles are 3/4" finished! Turned out cute but not the most fun to make. Those Dresden plates in the large triangle corners were fussy cut but didn't quite land in the same place in each triangle. Whoops!

Starry Eyed, Block 15, is by Corey Yoder. I like my fussy cut dress in the center of this one.

Sherri McConnell designed Block 16 called Dream. I used my Triangulations 3 paper piecing patterns and this block was a 'dream' to make.

Lastly is Block 17 called Crossroads by Betsy Chutchian. Again, using my Triangulations 3 CD, I was able to print out the perfect-sized flying geese paper piecing patterns to make this block easier than it looks. It was just a little time consuming, but a fun block. Mine is a little busy but it's growing on me. Again, I fussy cut those Dresden plates and placement is better this time.

Block 18 came out this morning and is an applique block by Jan Patek. I don't think I want any applique in this quilt so I'm waiting until Friday when at least a couple of designers have said they will post alternate blocks for this week.
