I was putting together the blocks for the 2014 Mod Mod Sampler from Block Lotto, and here is my epic fail at sewing curves. I have successfully made Drunkard’s Path blocks with quarter circles, but these semi-circles were too much.
I needed to come up with something else for that space in the quilt. I looked at some traditional blocks, but this is a Modern Modular design. So I improvised, first trying string piecing.
Then I turned to my favorite bit of quilting, the 2-1/2″ square. I had a stack of red and blue squares and I needed a 7×7 grid to make my 14″ block. Here is the arrangement I came up with.
I keep sewing the split 9-patch as my leader-ender project.
I have sewn 76 blocks, and I want 120 to make a quilt top.
