Vice Versa Block of the Month - April

Hello, everyone! For our 2016 Block of the Month, the Vice Versa quilt, we're going to share a blog post with you every month to show off our blocks, give you tips and tricks, or lend suggestions on how to make sewing that block a smoother process!

For all of the blocks in the Vice Versa quilt, we recommend pressing all seams open. Some of the pieces in these blocks can get small and pressing open can help reduce bulk when multiple seams collide.

Bear's Paw

This is a fresh modern take on a very traditional block. Again, we'll use half-square triangles to make this block. It's a little bit tedious with these smaller pieces, but the finished product is great! Here are our two finished Bear's Paw blocks:


I did find a small error in the cutting instructions. At the bottom of the section "From Fabrics B, C, D and E," it says to cut four 1 1/4" x 5 /4" rectangles. You only need to cut two of these.

The tutorial for this block can be found on pages 46-49 of the Sister Sampler Quilts book. Again, you can find AnneMarie's tutorial for two-at-a-time HSTs at the back of the book on pages 108-109. 

That's all for this month. I look forward to seeing all of your finished blocks on Instagram! We're using the hashtags #viceversaBOM, #PCFviceversaBOM, and #sistersamplerquilts.

Until next time,
Hayley
