Posted 11-23-2012 by | Posted in: Block 4 BlockBase Sew Along

Let’s link up those #2049 blocks! Fabrics used: Blue & Green Floral: Petal Pushers by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics; Dark Blue Floral: Modern Workshop by Liesl Gibson of oliver + s for Moda Fabrics; Light Blue: Petal Pushers by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics; Green: Pearadise by Jenni Calo for Connecting Threads; White: Calypso by Maywood Studio My previous 3 blocks were 10″, but I went a little smaller this time and made this block 5″. All these squares and rectangles were perfect for rotary cutting, but I’m glad I could use the foundation pattern when working with such small pieces!
