Three blocks are now available for the 2022 version of the Modern HST BOM - block 1.  When the QAL started, you were told how many HSTs and HRTs you would need for the whole quilt and you could size them anyway you wanted to get the finish size that would work for you.  My blocks will finish at 8" which means my HST are 2". 

I made all my HSTs ahead of time but decided to make the HRTs as needed.  Depending on how they are sewn together, there might be ways to make the block differently and eliminate a seam.  So far, this is working for me especially since my fabric choices are limited.  Two of the blocks used HRTs joined together - I created a FPP pattern to create them without the intermediate step of needing 2 HRTs. ,

Check out all the blocks at #modernhstBOM2022.  While most of my quilts are made from my own designs, I always enjoy having a project where someone else tells me what to sew.  My only decision is the fabric!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Patty I am anxious to see this one come together. I am "saving" a FQB of Thrive for sometime! Not sure what or when but needs to be soon.

  2. I think it's smart to wait and see if you can eliminate some seams. Great progress so far!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
