Traditonal Block Thursday: Weather Vane

Our last block for our #tbt Traditional Block Thursday is this beautiful Weather Vane Block. This block “dates back to the time when great-grandmother used that commodity to ‘calc’late a change,’ instead of listening to a scientific forecast on the radio. But her pattern, the weather vane, is one of the loveliest of our old-time … Continue reading Traditonal Block Thursday: Weather Vane


Traditional Block Thursday: Snowball

We are nearing the end of our Traditional Block Thursday Series, but there is one more technique I want to show you. Thus far, we have learned strip-piecing, half square triangles, quarter square triangles and flying geese. We aren’t going to delve into applique in this series – we’ll just stick with piecing, but there … Continue reading Traditional Block Thursday: Snowball


Traditional Block Thursday: Pieced Star

Today’s tutorial features the beautiful Samantha line from Penny Rose Fabrics. We will be making a Pieced Star today. There are many variations to a pieced star.

Traditional Block Thursday: Flying Geese

We are on to another technique here at #tbt Traditional Block Thursday. I am using the lovely Isabella collection from Penny Rose Fabrics to create these flying geese today. A little background about the flying goose block: the “goose” is the big triangle in the middle. They “sky” pieces are the two little triangles on … Continue reading Traditional Block Thursday: Flying Geese


Traditional Block Thursday: Ohio Star

The Ohio Star got it’s name in the early 1930’s, after it was published in Capper’s Farmer. It wasn’t a new block, that’s just when the name stuck. It has many aliases depending on how many fabrics are used and the fabric placement, including: Variable Star, Lone Star, Texas Spangled, Flying Crow, etc. The star … Continue reading Traditional Block Thursday: Ohio Star


Traditional Block Thursday: Hourglass

Today’s Traditional Block Thursday tutorial features a new technique! We are going to learn how to make a quarter square triangle (QST), also known as an hourglass block. It is pretty obvious by looking at the block how the hourglass block got its name. Just like the half square triangle, the quarter square triangle is … Continue reading Traditional Block Thursday: Hourglass
