MODA BLOCKHEADS 5: GROUP 2 – WEEK 5

This week’s designer is Janet Clare and her block is called GLIMMER. Be sure to check out her BLOG, where she has several tutorials on her featured blocks from prior MODA BLOCKHEADS series, too!

OUR BLOCK #5: GLIMMER (6″ Finished)

……

PIECING INSTRUCTIONS:

Just as discussed in LAST WEEK’S BLOG POST, I do my flying geese units using the SEW & FLIP METHOD vs. the 4-at-a-time method depicted in steps 1 and 2 of the MODA-provided pattern for this week.

If you prefer the SEW & FLIP method, eliminate the cutting instructions for: [B], [C], [D], and [E]. Instead:

For a 6″ block, cut:

  • (4) 1.5″ x 2.5″ rectangles [B]
  • (8) 1.5″ squares [C]
  • (4) 1.5 x 2.5″ rectangles [D]
  • (8) 1.5″ squares [E]

For a 12″ block, cut:

  • (4) 2.5″ x 4.5″ rectangles [B]
  • (8) 2.5″ squares [C]
  • (4) 2.5 x 4.5″ rectangles [D]
  • (8) 2.5″ squares [E]

FABRIC COLLECTIONS:
