This weeks Moda Sew Along block is the Camellia flower. This is the final block in this sew along, so we will be posting the lay out next Tuesday. #modaspringsewalong
I would like to make one pattern correction. Fabric D (the center fabric) needs to be 3 in.² I have provided two different pictures. The first try I went with 2 1/2 in.² which made it too small, so I changed it to a 3 1/2 in.² and I believe It is slightly too big because my points ended up being cut off.
Today we are popping up a daisy block from the Moda Spring Sew Along. Please don't look too close at this beauty. I know a few of my points are iffy. I had a couple of run-ins with the directions and settled on this as my final block for now. #modaspringsewalong
Here are your cutting directions...
Fabric A= back ground
* (4) 3” squares
* (16) 2” squares
* (4) 1½” x 6” strips
Fabric B= outer half-square triangle and petals
* (16) 2” x 3” rectangles
* (2) 4” squares
Fabric C= inner half-square triangle flower
* (2) 4" squares
Fabric D= center square
* (1) 1½” square
NOTE: WHEN MAKING THE HALF-SQUARE TRIANGLES TRIM THEM TO 3½" NOT 3"
I have decided that May showers bring May flowers! That’s right we’re on week six of the Moda Spring sew along!
This week’s Posie has one that frankly took me several tries to figure out! I’ve taken a close-up photo of the part I am talking about and you will notice, several of them are slightly off. I have settled with 1 1/8 being the most suitable correction. ￼
Fabric A: background
Fabric B: Petals *you need (12) 1 1/8th squares
Fabric C: green
Fabric D: orange
Fabric E: center square
Week 6 Posie Block
It was suggested that I use ombre fabrics to make a more interesting flower, so I was really excited to try it on this weeks Bouquet block. Della Lindley, please tell your sister thank you for the advice, I LOVE IT!!
As humans we all error, so let me help you with a couple of small direction errors on this block so you can sew worry free:
*When you are making the 1/2 square triangles, use the 3 1/2" blocks to make the sets, then trim them down to 3" (DO NOT trim to 2 1/2" that is too small). Please see the picture below for the complete corrected cutting directions.
Week 4 Boquet Block
I would like to share some tips and pattern corrections that I came across while doing this block. I will list them below. I will also go live on Facebook at 6:00 pm central time today May 5th To discuss these changes and give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. (When you click on the link below, you’ll notice the Moda sample block is a bit different than the pink one you see in my picture. As a quilter, I have a tendency to change things a bit and I felt like my flower needed to have more of a circular center.)
This list will make 2 blocks which I recommend because of the 1/4" triangle mirroring effect:
Fabric A (background)
*(8) 4 1/2” squares
* (2) 5 1/2” square
Fabric B (small flower points)
*(2) 5 1/2” square
Fabric C (large flower point)
*(4) 5” squares
*OPTIONAL FOR CIRCLE — (8) 2” squares.
Fabric D (center)
* (2) 4 1/2 square
Week 3: Aster
Fabric A= background
Fabric B= green
Fabric C= yellow
Fabric D= orange
Fabric E= center square
Week 2: Daffodil
