Does this sound like you?

We are participating in the Moda Block-of-the-week Event. Six of Moda's top designers have teamed up to create 48 individual blocks that will be published weekly.

If you’re missing any blocks, alternate blocks or links to blog posts, you can find it all on the BLOCKHEADS ARCHIVE PAGE.


Blockhead Week 24
This week’s block is Corn No Beans by Carrie Nelson
Carrie and the sewists at Moda's "Cutting Table" have created this block for use with 1-2-3 (4-5-6) fabrics in mind. One of the blocks at Moda is Scrappy, Jo Morton used 5 and Jan Patek used 2. Each look is perfect on its own.

Blockhead Week 23
This week’s block is Winneconne Star by Lisa Bongean
Lisa stirs her blocks and when she's finished a new block is created. Look at this simple 8 pointed star, for example. A whole new look is created by adding four patches in the center and the corners.
