WIP Wednesday - Modern HST Sampler

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts is hosting a year-long Modern HST Sampler quilt along.  Every two weeks, a new HST block is unveiled.  We'll be learning different techniques to make the HST's.

We learned how to make two HST's at a time for the first block, Candy.  Here are the instructions.

Block:  Candy

For the second block, Ninja, we learned how to make four HST's at a time.  Here are the instructions.

Block:  Ninja

Alyce has so many great HST tricks! I always use her blog as a resource when I'm making them! Have fun; your first two blocks are looking good :)

Love finding different ways to make HSTs or flying geese, etc etc!

I love seeing these! Ugh, I keep wondering if I should play along, or just stick to the pan I made for 2016...but those blocks are so cute!

I love HSTs, do you have a favorite method of making them or are you just exploring all the options?

Maker Joy said...

Liking the strong colours - will it be a rainbow quilt?

Love the blocks. I thought about playing along on this one but haven't started yet.

I knew about making 2 HSTs at a time, but hadn't heard of 4 at a time! New techniques are always cool, your blocks look great!

Lisa J. said...

I've never heard of the four at a time either. Interesting. I like the size of the blocks.

These are nice big blocks and a great way to learn all the ways to make HST's. Looks like a fun QAL!

A whole year of HSTs? Thanks, but no thanks, you know how I feel about those things. 😧

I like how she has renamed the friendship star a ninja star. The block's shape has always reminded me of the same thing.
