Stitch Pink Block 16 - Just Call Me a Diva
Block Tip: Useful tools for this block - the Simple Folded Corners Ruler by Antler Quilt Design for the folded corners, and a small square ruler for trimming the quarter-triangle squares.
This is another one of my favorite blocks that looks more complicated than it really is. As for options, use a third fabric for the D and G squares to create a "corona" around the center square. And of course, scrappy. Use one fabric for the B squares, another for the E squares, and a third for the center F square. (Do you see a quilt made with just this block in my future? I do.)
Block 14. A few folks are struggling with Along Came Mary, so I'll be updating the blog post in a few days to share a few tips that I hope will help.
WE'RE STITCHING PINK!
For more than twenty years, health organizations around the world have come together for the month of October to campaign for increased awareness of breast cancer.
Last year, we created Stitch Pink to help with that, in large part because the Moda family has been touched by breast cancer. While we reminded each other of the importance of mammograms and early detection and educated ourselves regarding risk factors, we did a little bit of stitching together.
This year, we want to do a little more. So we're sharing a Sampler Quilt, one block each day for the month of October. The whole month - thirty blocks, and then the Final Assembly on Saturday, October 31.
Finishing at 64" x 76", the quilt is made with thirty blocks that finish at 12" x 12".
