This is my block for the QuiltCon Block Challenge. I fell in love with the colour scheme and needed an excuse to buy more fabric so I ordered a half-yard bundle of Kona from Mad About Patchwork to make my block.

The curved triangle unit is paper pieced and the background pieces were cut using templates and attached using a standard pinless curved piecing technique. The design is the same as the one I used for the patchwork panel in this pouch except I used the fancy triangle version instead of plain rectangles. This block is a great representation of me as a quilter because it uses my two favourite techniques.

The design is from the book "Flying Colors" by Gail Garber. I used the foundation that was published along with an article in the July 2011 issue of American Quilter magazine. I used my computer to enlarge the foundation and scale it from a square block to a rectangle.

The unfinished block size is 12.5" tall by ~16" wide.

For her blocks in The Great White North Bee 3 Kelly sent some solid 5" charms and asked for blocks made out of HSTs to make a quilt like this.

These blocks were quick and easy -- I randomly paired the squares, sewed the diagonal seams and then randomly placed the triangle squares. I think that Kelly's quilt is going to be stunning!

For her blocks in The Great White North Bee 3 Kelly sent some solid 5" charms and asked for blocks made out of HSTs to make a quilt like this.

These blocks were quick and easy -- I randomly paired the squares, sewed the diagonal seams, squared the triangle squres up to 4.5" and then randomly placed them in the blocks. I think that Kelly's quilt is going to be stunning!
