Hello and happy Block Heads Wednesday! Today I’m sharing Moda Block Heads 3 Block 10 which is a fun windmill block brought to us by Stacey Iest Hsu. Her block is fast and fun…and really cute!
Moda Block Heads 3 Block 10
Moda Block Heads 3 Block 10 is made up of rectangles and half-square triangles–and goes together so very quickly. You can play around with fabric choices and decide how much contrast you want within each of the two windmill units. I didn’t use much contrast in my yellow windmill and used just a bit more in the aqua windmill.
Block 10 Fabrics
Here are the Summer Sweet fabrics I used for this week’s block:
- Sunshine Daisy Dot
- Sunshine Chamomile
- Ice Sprinkle
- Ice Garden Song
- Daisy Dot Tonal Ivory (This is getting harder to find now–just found some on Etsy.)
Block 10 Tips & Tricks
This week’s tips and tricks are pretty similar to last weeks: cut your pieces carefully, and use one of these two methods to size the half-square triangles perfectly:
- Make Perfect Half-Square Triangles Using a Ruler or
- Use Triangle Paper to Make Perfect Half-Square Triangles.
