Moda Blockheads 4 - Bonus Block 3
Updated: Jul 31, 2022
This was a fun block to make. I followed the instructions and made no changes to the cutting or the assembly methods.
Usually I make Flying Geese using a rectangle and two squares but I decided to use the method outlined in the block instructions. It works very well, it was quick and accurate and I will use this method again.
I used Diagonal Seam tape for the first time and it saved a whole step. I did not need to draw the diagonal on the squares, for the Flying Geese, so that saved a lot of time as well. This is a win, in my book, and I will be using Diagonal Seam Tape more into the future. Anything that can save time, and a whole step, has to be good.
As you can see, I decided to use the toweling stripes in the centre 9-patch of the block. With the stripes running out from the centre it makes the block multi-directional so there is no 'right-way-up'. I like having blocks with no direction, so the quilt can be viewed from different sides and still appear correct.
