I used the charm pack Jovial by basicgrey for Moda and some neutral fabrics that I had.AccuQuilt GO! Baby to cut 3.5 inch HST's with the 3 inch finished half square triangle die. I really love AccuQuilt's quilt block dies as the corners are dog-eared which makes piecing very easy. Notice that your fabric is at an angle on the die - make sure you place your fabric like this to get the grain right.
I already had the neutral pieces cut and thought it was more fun to show you the prints. I laid the charm squares on the bottom part of the die (I used a silver sharpee to show the cutting lines on the die) and I even got a usable scrap piece from each square.
You could also cut 3 7/8 inch squares to make your Half Square Triangles.
First we are going to piece the neutral colored triangles and center block together.
Sizzix Big Shot for the applique pieces. These have a lot of detail to them. I am using the Tattered Florals and Hanging Snowflake #2 dies.
Patsy Thompson who does something very similar called the EKG stitch. Her stitching is really beautiful and her site is well worth a visit!
The block is now 18.5 inches - great for a center piece or pillow.
Here it is as a center piece.
You could also make several blocks and put a quilt together. I am terrible at naming blocks or quilts - my sewing machine doesn't have a name. How about Winter Snowflake for this block?Quilting by the River any time to see other things that I am working on.
