Are you a Blockhead??
Blockhead. noun block·head ˈbläk-ˌhed  A quilter who likes to make a wide variety of quilt blocks, who probably collects books filled with quilt blocks, who has lots of random quilt blocks but still wants to make more.

Blockhead Week 11
Lisa's Star from Lisa Bongean

An easy block this week! I suspect Quilt market is the reason. Whew, these past blocks are beautiful but challenging. Jo Morton has ironed the seams to her block open, check out her blog and the back of her block.o
This is the link to LisasStar! And Jo's journal. Remember, each blog will have links to all the designer's blogs. Enjoy!
