Hello and happy Wednesday! I hope you’re doing well and are staying safe at home. I actually ventured to Costco yesterday for the first time since February. Things had really changed there. It was a little surreal. But I was able to get almost everything on my list, so now I’ll be home for quite a while again! Today is Moda Block Heads day, and that is always a fun day. I’m sharing Block Heads 3 block 17 which is a really fun block as you’ll see!
Moda Block Heads 3 Block 17
Block 17 Tips and Tricks
This week’s block can be made much more accurately with the use of Bloc Loc flying geese rulers. I couldn’t find one available for the 12″ finished block, but I’ve linked the rulers for the three smaller sizes below (and the smaller size blocks are where the Bloc Loc rulers really come in handy):
- The Flying Geese Bloc Loc for 4″ Block
- Flying Geese Bloc Loc for 6″ Block
- And the Flying Geese Bloc Loc for 8″ Block
