100 Days – Week of Blocks – Octagonal Orb Block Tutorial


What better way to finish off the Week of Blocks than with a new block tutorial?

The Octagonal Orb Block was adapted from a fabulous pillow designed by Heather Bostic. The fact that it’s made with bunches of 2-1/2″ pieces makes it perfect for scrap busting or using precut fabrics.

  1. What an absolutely fabulous block! A great stash buster – and don’t you love when something looks like it’s going to be complicated to put together and some very clever person (thank you Elizabeth H.) makes it sooo much simpler. I believe I have a new project to complete on this dreary day :)

  2. What a beautiful block!! Thank you so much for sharing the tutorial for it, it is really an inspiration; just what I needed!

  3. Elizabeth! You continue to amaze me with your creativity and innovative designs. I am now printing the tute and hot off the presses will run up to my sewing room to sew a block. Been looking for a black/white/grey block with lots of movement and a touch of brights. This is it! Love it!

  4. This is a great block! I love that it’s not paper pieced-which I thought it would be. Easy peasy instructions. I’m anxious to have the time to make a quilt with this block.
