This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Open Wide block. A quick half-square triangle unit and simple piecing make up this fun block. Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!
The first steps in making this block include the half-square triangle unit. This simple element adds a lot of great movement to the block and the layout options too! If you are looking for tips on making the half-square triangle units, check out this video. I walk you through each step of the process, with simple steps and a little practice the HST units come together quickly.
After that, making the block is a quick and fun process! Pull out your favorite scraps to get started.
In the video I walk you through the simple construction of this block. It is simple but effective!
This week the Open Wide block is free, next week it will be available for purchase in my shop.
Pin now, sew later
Save to your favorite quilting boards for inspiration when you need it!
I hope you have a creative week!
