The digital pattern PDF includes the numbered templates for this versatile modern block, with a full color picture on the cover for fabric placement. The instructions include a gray scale diagram showing template and fabric placement. Print the diagram for use in playing with coloring. See how different this quilt block can look just by changing the colors used on certain templates!
More blocks can be paper pieced to easily make larger size quilts. Multiply the 16 inch finished block until you get the size desired in length and width. Add sashing or borders for a traditional look or go modern with negative space.
Bonus pages show how to use the same templates to make amazing block variations. One variation is a 12 inch finished block that will tile across from block to block, giving you a quilt pattern with diagonal rows of double hearts. Try reversing the templates to change the direction of the hearts and make a quilt that alternates the directions of the blocks. There is no limit to the possibilities of what can be created from this Modular style FPP design.
