Stacy Iest Hsu submitted her first collection to Moda in 2015.  Lil' Red debuted in shops in January 2016 and twenty-five collections later, she's still expanding her repetoire with new fabrics, styles, colors and products.  And every time any of us thinks "okay, this is the best one!", she comes up with another great idea. 

This is Stacy's second time as a Block Head, and despite being a star designer and business dynamo, she's a full-time Mom and wife.  Yet her Block Heads quilt is finished... more on that in a moment.

First - Block 52!

Intersection can be made in all four sizes - 4", 6", 8" and 12".  The instructions can be found on Stacy's blog - Stacy Iest Hsu Blog.

Speaking of intersections... have you seen Stacy's "in shops later this month" collection with an interactive play mat filled with roads, trucks, and cars?  It's titled On The Go.
