Fun with the Moda blockheads continues. Week 4 was an applique block… a cute little bird house with bird.
I don’t mind doing applique, but since my vintage machine only does straight stitch, it means I have to haul out my other machine (not terrible, but I’m lazy), or I have to do it at Mom’s.
But since not everyone enjoys applique, the designers also offered up three alternate blocks. I chose this cute little pair of tweeters:
Since my colour scheme was perfect for it, I turned mine into a mated pair of robins. Maybe it might even conjure up a little spring for us…
Here’s all six blocks I have done so far. The little house was another alternate to the applique block. And the heart was one I substituted for Week 5’s block, which was the word “Love” paper-pieced. I’m not in the mood for learning paper piecing at the moment, and I think the heart is a nice stand in.
This is shaping up to be quite the interesting project.
