Blockhead #7

“Game Board” by Lisa Bongean

There might be brave quilters who tackle the 4½ inches block but for me it was 9 inches.

The block reminds me less of a game board and more of the Tetris game on one of my first mobile phones. Anyways – it was fun to sew.

Here‘s the blog post where you will find the pdf pattern. And as always – go to the Moda Blockheads Facebook Group for further information and inspiration.

 

Blockhead #5

“Two of Five” by Barbara Groves

is this week’s block. For me it’s a traditional “Hole in the Barndoor” block but when I read the instructions I came upon Barbara’s explanation: Two of Five? Where did that name come from? This is Mary’s favorite quilt block and she calls it a Shoo Fly. I’ve always called it a Churn Dash. We decided on Two of Five – Mary and I are two of five sisters!” So the name makes perfect sense! Isn’t it interesting how many names one simple block can have?

Blockhead #3

“Kougin Amman” by Laurie Simpson is this week’s block for Moda Blockheads.

 

My block is 9 inches square. I told you that I will mix the different block sizes and I plan to do a layout inspired by Robin Picken’s “Square Garden” but changing the corners and some other bits.

If you want to sew the Blockheads as well (and want to know where the name of the block comes from) go to Laurie Simpson’s blog for the pdf pattern and sewing tips and join the Moda Blockheads Facebook Group where you will find the new block each week.
