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. I am still a bit behind on making/posting the blocks, but I do have all the pieces cut, I just need to sew the blocks together.
I didn’t notice until I started taking pictures that I accidentally rotated the outer four corner pieces of this block by 180˚, but I still like the end result. I haven’t squared up any of the recent blocks, and I am waiting until I start assembling the quilt.
Block 20 is three bear paws, and I really liked this block, but I wish I would have chosen a more solid fabric for the paw pieces. The blue and white just doesn’t show the pattern well. I am not too bothered by it because this quilt project was all about learning new techniques.
I love Block 21! I didn’t have quite enough of either of the red fabrics, so I altered them in the pattern, and I really like the result! I am super excited with how well my corners are lining up, and with how much more consistent my finished block sizes are..
I am still having a small problem with finished block size – I sew each seam at the same seam allowance, but I am having trouble with block size consistency. I have some blocks that are ending up much smaller than 6″, and some that are right on size.
Do you have any suggestions?
