BH4 - Block 2
You'll have to read the Block 2 instructions to learn the origin of the name.
Cooee by Jenelle Kent of Pieces to Treasure is Block 2 for Blockheads.
The instructions for this block can be found on Jenelle's blog - Pieces to Treasure.
(The block instructions are also linked below, and in the Blockheads 4 Archive.)
We also have a few things to share, a quick-tip for cutting stitched half-triangle squares apart, a list of the Designers for Blockheads 4, and the first of a couple of layout options.
Jenelle's 9" finished Cooee blocks.
The bitty Cooee blocks - 4½" finished. You'll probably want to make a few extra small blocks...
Jenelle loves making pillows with her toweling, she decorates her home with them, switching out covers with the seasons. If you're not familiar with Jenelle's Moda toweling, it mixes well with quilting cottons, and it's very soft.
A square pillow made with one 9" finished block. Did I mention that Jenelle is sharing the patterns for these pillows too?
The pillow pattern can be found here - Pieces to Treasure Blog
A cool tip to share! Whether you're making half-triangle squares to size, or making them larger, Moda Tammy has a terrific way quickly cutting the squares apart. (This is especially good when there are a lot of them!)
Stack the half-triangle squares as shown with the corner points of the squares - or the drawn line - placed on a line of the cutting mat as shown.
As the squares are stacked, you'll be able to see the line on the cutting mat to keep them straight. Place the ruler on the line you've used as the guide and cut.
Voilà! Practice with just a couple of squares until you get the hang of it, then you'll be off and running. (We know that Tammy stacks more than four squares when she's sewing at home.)

I didn't forget, the first of several layout options we have to share. This uses thirty-six (36) 9" finished blocks in a straight setting with sashing. The quilt top finishes at 67½" x 67½".
If you're on social media, be sure to check out #modablockheads to see the blocks everyone is making.
Moda's Blockheads Facebook Group is also excited, and there are so many beautiful fabric pulls to see - Moda Blockheads Facebook Group.
