This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing up the Tip Top block. Oversized half-square triangle units create this striking block. Follow along as I continue designing and sharing a new block pattern each week!
Don’t worry about cutting the right angles, we are keeping the construction for this block super simple! Using tried and true methods this block comes together quickly and easily. I had delayed releasing this block a bit, because I didn’t want anyone to be overwhelmed with the angles, I hope you will give it a try!
In the video I walk you through the simple construction of this block, and add my tips for dealing with large half-square triangle units. If you aren’t familiar with half-square triangle units my step by step guide is here. Also in the video description is links to the tools I used in making my block.
This week the Tip Top 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!
PS – I’d love for you to share this with your quilting friends!
