Block Two – Layer Cake Quiltalong

This is block two for the Layer Cake Quiltalong being hosted by Konda at Moose on the Porch Quilts:

I am using “It’s a Hoot” by Momo for Moda.  It is a very colorful line of fabric (with lots of owls).  The two brown fabrics in this block looked like they had more contrast when I originally placed them side by side.  The brown polka dot is much darker than the floral, but the difference has disappeared now that they are in smaller pieces and sewn into the background.  Oh, well, I still like the block!
The directions for the block called for the use of half square triangle papers, but I used my new June Taylor half-square triangle ruler instead.  It is a very handy tool!  I will tell you more about it on Toolbox Thursday.
