This block was hard. Yep. Although I so very much wanted to press the seams open to make them less bulky, I took Carrie Nelson’s advice and pressed my seams to the dark side. I am so glad I did. As a result, they nestled very nicely and I was happy with how the points turned out.

Fairly simple. After completing the previous block, Birds in the Air, the points on this block can together so much easier. It’s actually a pretty little block and these colors are so sweet.

I’ve not really done quarter square triangles before. I like them. I made the segments a little larger and then cut them all to size before completing the 9 patch construction. My block came out the perfect size.

CAPITAL T BLOCK

The Capital T Block. There are 3 sizes, 8.5″, 6.5″ and 5.0″. The Flying Geese on the 5″ block were a bit tedious. I eventually realized that I needed to iron the seams open. That helped a lot.

The Hidden Star is a nice and easy block. There are 3 sizes, 8.5″, 6.5″ and 5.0″.

Summer Moon BOM – May

The first month’s blocks in the Summer Moon Block of the Month are:

  • Album Block
  • Churn Dash
  • Fool’s Puzzle

Album Block

The Album Block is sewn in strips and then cut down to size. There are 3 sizes, 8.5″, 6.5″ and 5.0″. The 5″ block has tiny little pieces and I am so glad that I heavily starched the fabric. It makes accuracy so much easier.

Churn Dash Block

The Churn Dash Blocks are 8.5″, 6.5″ and 5.0″. This block is quick and easy.

Fool’s Puzzle Block

Fools Puzzle Block for Summer Moon Quilt

The Fool’s Puzzle Blocks are 8.5″, 6.5″ and 5.0″. The center square is an hourglass and it is surrounded by flying geese blocks. In the future, I would like to see an entire quilt made using this block style.
