Block tip: When you're cutting strips for the blocks, cut your strips on the lengthwise grain - parallel to the selvage. The one thing to mention for this block is the stem. The rectangle is long enough that it should extend all the way to the trimmed point on both ends. But don't worry too much if it doesn't, it only matters that it's within the seam allowance after the sections are pieced. Moda Blog
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".
