I’m not saying this week’s block will win you big money, but it is called Good Luck Token, so you never know!!

I found this block to be very interesting to piece together. It took me some time to properly pattern it in the easiest way possible, without much waste. I love problem solving like that. I enjoy those “lightbulb” moments when everything falls into place. Creating the pattern for this block was one of those moments.

There is a new method in this block that we haven’t used before in the Quilt Concert Series. You will be using a template included in the pattern to create the individual triangles.

Block Tip!

Before you trace and cut out the triangles of this block, use Best Press or another spray starch on it. This helps prevent the bias edge from stretching and making the block wonky!!!

Good Luck Token can now be purchased for $2 at Shoppe Lovingly Lissa

Do you need to catch up with previous week blocks? The cutting directions and all even numbered blocks can be found at The Not So Dramatic Life Etsy Shop and all odd number blocks can be found at Shoppe Lovingly Lissa Etsy Shop.
