My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Block 15 from twiddletails

This block looks very scary but really isn't. It's all HSTs and, because it's 27" x 27", it fills up a lot of space.

Disclaimer: Sometimes I will change the pattern instructions a little bit because a different way works better for me. This does not mean that the pattern won't work exactly as written. If you follow the pattern, your blocks will still turn out fine.

Tips/Instructions:

I don't have many tips for this block.

Be sure to double check your fabric combinations because there are 4 different HST combos.

I always lay ...

DASHING ALONG from Kwilty Pleasures

I will begin by saying...
I seldom get involved with Sew Alongs Challenges

BUT when Kairlie Oaks showed up
on Instagram with the #dashalong
I couldn't resist.

Use 1 precut layer cake
Some backing
and make Churn Dash Blocks.

WIN-WIN-WIN

I had a very old Wrens and Friends layer cake by MODA



And plenty of white in my stash for the background.


The stacks were ready and the chain piecing was easy and fast.


The colors in this layer cake are sew fun and happy!


Then came the HST...this took the most time!


Ahhh, yes....sew pretty!

My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Blocks 12, 13, & 14 from twiddletails

We are making 9 blocks this month but don't panic.  They are very simple blocks.



Disclaimer: Sometimes I will change the pattern instructions a little bit because a different way works better for me. This does not mean that the pattern won't work exactly as written. If you follow the pattern, your blocks will still turn out fine.

Tips/Instructions:

Block 12: Press the Fabric 8/10 HSTs' seams toward Fabric 10 and the Fabric 9/10 HSTs' seams away from Fabric 10. This will allow all the seams to nest nicely when you assemble the block.
