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

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