Blockbuster Season 6: The Complete Collection

Are you looking for a BlockBuster from 2021? Then you are in luck, we have pulled together all the blocks from last year in one place to make it easier for you to find the block that you are looking for. 


Blockbuster # 55: Spring Blossom

We started the sixth series of Blockbusters off with a block that was a little challenging but fun to put together. Using Lemoyne quarters always adds something interesting to the design.

Required Companion Products: Rapid Fire® Lemoyne Star, Tucker Trimmer® I, and Wing Clipper® II


Blockbuster #56: Breezy Seas

It is always fun to be able to sew with straight lines but get the illusion of curves. In Breezy Seas the combination of half square triangles and Diamond Rects units creates a fun block that you just have to make.

Required Companion Products: Diamond Rects®, Tucker Trimmer® I

Blockbuster #57: Beacon

Twisting and turning of units can create completely different looking blocks. In Beacon we show you that if you place a unit in the same location but rotate it you could get something unique.

Required Companion Products: Corner Beam®, Four Patch Square Up®, Offset Four Patch Technique Sheet


Blockbuster #58: Hunter’s Compass

In this block we added some spice to your Traditional Hunter’s Star blocks by adding a Corner Pop using the Corner Pop® III tool. You can create a fun secondary design when you put a bunch of these blocks together!

Create a different type of star block with Stacked Star, where you have star points but then a square squared shape jumps out at you as well. There are so many possibilities available with this block.

Required Companion Products: Square Squared®, Four Patch Square Up®, Stacked Squares Technique Sheet, Offset Four Patch Technique Sheet


Blockbuster #60: Fireworks

Give your Corner Pop II tool a real workout in this block by corner popping multiple corners on units and squares as well as using different sizes. You will be really familiar with your Corner Pop® II by the time you are done with this block. In fact, this block was challenging enough that it inspired me to do a walkthrough video in my Tips & Tricks from the Tucker Team Series.

Required Companion Products: Square Squared®, Corner Pop® II, Tucker Trimmer® I


Blockbuster #61: Sweetbrier

Spikes galore! Isn’t it great when a block looks really hard but in fact it is easy to make? By using mirror image Split Rects units you create a fantastic spiked corner unit. By matching the side triangle and center triangle fabric on the V Block units, you get a nice tall center spike.
