Moda Blockheads: Round 2 {Block 5}

5
If you're new here, welcome! I'm Vanessa Goertzen, the designer behind Lella Boutique fabrics for Moda and newbie to the Moda Blockheads design team. I'm sharing Block no. 5 today and it's a big one (24'' x 24'' finished). Meet Block no. 5 "Impact."
Impact finished block
This is what happens when flying geese crash. Boom! Instructions for the block are found here. You can see a couple different color placement options for mine, but of course there are many more. I can't wait to see how ya'll interpret this block. My fabric is Garden Variety--my newest collection shipping in October.
When I first designed this Impact block, I liked the idea of making more blocks and putting them into a full quilt. Which you could totally do as is. But I started playing around, making a few alterations the block, and eventually came up with the "Bling" quilt below in Nest fabric.  With fewer flying geese, the Bling block is slightly smaller (20'' x 20'' finished) and features an accent square in the center. The full quilt is 80'' x 80'' and can be made using 24 fat eighths. PDF pattern is available here.

I'm dying to find a spare moment to piece Bling. (If you have any ideas on how to add more hours in the day, please share.) Thanks for stopping by--I hope you'll come say hi over on Instagram (@lellaboutique) where you can stay the most up-to-date on new fabric, patterns, giveaways, discounts, etc. Speaking of discounts--I'm offering 15% off in my shop for all you lovely new Blockheads using promo code BLOCKHEADS at checkout.

    1. Thanks, Brigitte! It really will stand out in the finished quilt layout. Which is why I ended up changing my mind and giving it a stronger navy presence... XO

    1. I didn't use any special ruler, but these finish at 2" x 4". Hope that helps.

  11. How did you measure and square up this block? I do not have this size ruler. Thank you.

    1. I didn't square mine up, actually, but your question is a good one. Many times, if your block is bigger than your mat or ruler, you can take it to your local quilt shop since they generally have the bigger mats. I'm sure they'd be happy help you.
