Sometimes I replace the Mode Block Head block of the week with one of my own.
This week I added this block to my existing Block Head 3 blocks. This gives me the opportunity to test out a block, and see if I want to design a pattern around it.
My block finishes at 8" x 8". All of the HST are 1". But if you break this block down, it is made from HST's, plain squares, and 4 flying geese. I stitched this block together piece by piece and pressed each seam after each addition. Yes, it took extra time, but it was worth the effort.
In class, I encourage my students to put their own style into their quilts. Make changes. You don't always have to follow the pattern exactly as it's written. Write your own quilt story, and make the quilt your interpretation of the original design.
Get busy writing your style in cloth!
