Ready, set, cut your pieces for the Mid Mod Shoofly Quilt Block

Ready, set, cut your pieces for the Mid Mod Shoofly Quilt Block

by Tania Denyer

Yesterday I introduced you to the fantastic Banyan Batiks Mod Graphics and the mid mod shoofly block I’ll be making with them. Today I’m getting the pieces cut in preparation for block assembly.

This is what your mid mod shoofly block will look like complete!

The mid mod shoofly block finishes at 12″ x 14″, the unfinished size should measure 12½” x 14½”.

Today I’m cutting fabric for 8 pieced blocks and 8 solid blocks.

For each of your mid mod shoofly blocks, these are the three components you will need.
