The last modular cathedral: Groove block

This block is basically the last block rearranged. I'm naming it after the fabric line "Groove" because it's what inspired this shape. It's the end of the line for the Modular Cathedral project. I think I may have saved the best for last!


Ingredients:
four 5'' squares
eight 2 1/2'' squares
1 1/2'' strip for border (optional)

Fold all the small squares in half along the diagonal and press.


Use small dots of glue to hold them in opposite corners of the 5'' squares.


Construct the block. Press seams like your life depends on it.


Pin back the folds and topstitch.


Here's all the blocks I've made. Groove is my favorite I think, followed closely by the original. I could see making an entire quilt of either of those. I'll stitch these all together someday, though certainly not soon.

What a fun little experiment this was! I realized going back and checking my links that I never made a tutorial just for the basic block, or that flower one in the middle row, so I'll be back with those tutorials. Eventually.
