Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms brings us block 17 for Moda Blockheads. It is called SHORELINE and uses half square triangles and stitch and flip corners to make a beautiful block. You can visit Camille's blog with the link below to get the free block pattern:
I like the star in the center and seeing it with color or reversed to background white. Corner squares can blend into a triangle shape for the block edges or the corners can stand out as contrasting squares. The darker pink can outline the center like a ribbon defining it or be mixed with gold to have a sparkly, almost kaleidoscope look. When we break up the colors by quadrant or sides it emphasizes the kaleidoscope feeling even more. Don't the last two look like light coming through a faceted or beveled glass window?
I used Thatched and Abby Rose for a rosy block that feels like it is a blooming pink flower. I'm tying in some of that Fuchsia that goes with the corner bud blocks for my quilt setting and keeping the Cranberry darker red to go with the background on those outer rows.
I love seeing the blocks on the Moda Blockheads facebook page as they pop up each week. One of the most interesting things about sewalongs is the sharing of our blocks and the fun fabric and color combinations we get to see from others. I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am!
