This week’s designer is Robin Pickens (@robinpickens) and he or she made two Spellbound blocks, a 3″ in Wild Blossoms and a 6″ in Thatched Fundamentals from Moda Materials. The Spellbound block is a enjoyable patchwork design with potential for various appears like Robin’s blocks above.

Right here’s what she needed to share about her design, “I really like doing little patchwork squares, however need to admit that generally stitching these little squares is a problem. It makes me slightly loopy to match corners of little patchwork and preserve these squares a constant measurement. What do I do about it? Effectively, the smaller the little squares, the extra I flip to starching my material earlier than slicing. That helps preserve the small blocks in form and manageable. The opposite factor I do is study if I can do strip piecing for effectivity and I press to the facet and never open, so I’m not opening the ends of seams. Whew! Love the look, however little patchwork squares do make me slightly loopy!”

We’ve sewn the Spellbound block with completely different collections in all three measurement choices. The three″ block is sewn with Nutmeg by BasicGrey for Moda Materials, the 6″ block in Dwell by Camille Roskelley for Moda Materials, and the 9″ block utilizing Cinnamon & Cream by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Materials.
