Tammy Vonderschmitt, also known as @nithaystack on instagram (from a shop she used to own), amazes me with all the projects she does! She is always sewing something new and has all kinds of great ideas. I had the pleasure of getting to know Tammy a little more when exhibiting with Moda at Road to California before all the pandemic stuff hit and she is such a treasure! This week's fun block "Indiana Puzzle" is from her. You can find this week's pattern from Tammy in Moda's blog- in the section on Blockheads archives.
Patchwork checkerboard corners pair with half square triangles to create a spinning motion. Extend the triangle color into the smaller squares in the corners to make a fanning out shape or even arrow heads. Or separate your rows by color, or make twisty arms that bend into the corners.
I had fun mixing some pinks from Abby Rose and Sweet Pea & Lily with some little fuchsia squares to tie in with my pink corner buds. I am bringing in yellow from Solana to coordinate with the center blocks and little orange corners to look harmonious with the small orange blocks.
I was also able to get two of the bonus blocks done this week too. I've made Wheat Field and Sharply Dressed in small blocks for the orange rows.
