Moda Blockheads Week #26



Blockheads Week #26

Question of the Week: Is there a product/ruler/tool you wish you'd invented? 
Duh, rotary cutters/blades. No one has just one cutter and we're always buying more blades so we don't run out. And now, with pinked/wave/scallop blades, there's even more reason to have a variety. 

Betsy's delightful block this week combines little half squares inside larger half squares for lots of movement and interest. It will be fun to see your fabric choices this week.

Block #26 - Cat's Cradle by Betsy Chutchian

Kathy & Joy both opted for a 2-color block. Kathy's red/white/blue block is not the usual patriotic look, but I like the more graphic background for impact. Joy chose a more subtle background with a purple print for the triangles and the center square, which totally changes the look of the block. So many options.

Kathy's tradtionally pieced block.
Joy's Layered Patchwork block.
