I ran across the Moda Sampler Block Shuffle 2015 project at Bear Creek Quilting Company and decided it would be a fun project to try. The project is now in it’s third week, and I’m still really enjoying myself. Blocks 10, 11, & 12 were released Monday, and I was able to put them together that evening but haven’t had a chance to post them until now.
Block 10 was very straight forward and easy to sew – five square pieces, and four half square triangles. I didn’t really think much about how much white there was in this block, and if I had, I would have chosen a different print for the HST pieces.
This is my favorite block so far! I can imagine this block with many different patterns and fabrics, and I think it is very pretty and unique. The one thing I would definitely change is the direction of my pressed seams – though I think they’re showing more than normal because of the dark fabric behind the block. My background fabric really isn’t that thin.
To be perfectly honest, I do not like this block at all. I love the pattern of this block, but I wasn’t really paying attention when I chose the fabric and the design is too large for the pieces in this block.
