How to Make Moda Love Quilt Block:

Step 1

Download the pattern and cut the fabrics as instructed, then group the squares and triangles, and start making the half-square triangles for the outer background. Make 8 half-square triangles each of blue and white, and red and white, simply lay the triangles together with their right sides facing and edges matching, then stitch them together, and press the seams open.

Step 2

For the inner background, make 8 half-square triangles for the black and white triangles, then 10 of the yellow and white triangles, and 2 of the red and white triangles. Once done, make the center unit by laying 2 red half-square triangles and 2 yellow half-square triangles together alternately, then make sure that the colored side is at the center as shown in the video, and stitch them together making sure to press the seams as well.
