Modern Monday - Block 21

You guessed it! Embrace the cliche! Happy V-day!
Block 21 - Heart
Before we start this week's block, I want to tell you that I am today's guest blogger on CraftyTammie! If you go to her site, you will see how to turn this block into a darling small wall hanging - plus you will read what 5 things I love! While you're there, check out all her guest bloggers for this week. Plus, she has tons of really cool giveaways and contests going on that you can enter. Please tell her hi from me while you're there!

This week is Valentine's Day, as we all *should* be aware of by now! So to celebrate, I created this fun little wonky valentine. It's paper-pieced so if you need instructions, try these tutorials: Fresh Lemons or Crafty Gemini Either are great to get you going or refresh your memory.


I chose an orange polka dot print and gray for my block. I printed the pattern on plain paper. If I were piecing multiple blocks, I would use special paper-piecing paper. To access the template, click here.


After paper-piecing, square up your block to 6 1/2" unfinished.
