It’s time to share the next block in Heartland Heritage series. February is all about the Barnyard block and I thought it would be fun to share a quick tip for keeping our pieces in order.

Barnyard Block Fabrics

I selected 4 colorful fabrics from my pile that I think will pop off the background and really play nice together.  Since this is such an easy block to sew, I thought it would be fun to share my secrete weapon for bringing block pieces from the cutting table to the sewing machine.

Design Board

I like to use design boards. This easy method of transport might seem silly to some but trust me it really helps keep things in order plus, it prevents pieces from falling on the floor and disappearing. Trust me, with two French Bulldog pups in the house, this is mission critical.

The Barnyard Block from Heartland Heritage is so easy to make and fun to put together. See how I used my design board to stay on track.

Design boards can be purchased in a variety of sizes but for those of you that are crafty with the glue gun,  design boards are easy to make. Here is a great tutorial.

Overall the barnyard block consists of a few different units including half square triangles and rectangles. It has a log cabin style piecing and is easy to make.  I love the way my design board helps kept me on task.

Check out my quick video and see what I mean!

Once you have all your units stitched, trimmed and pressed it’s time for assembly. This block is a quick sew!
