Block Heads 2 - Counting Down

Block Heads 2 - Counting Down

Written by:

Five weeks.  To finish your Block Heads 1 quilt.  To sharpen your rotary cutting blades.  To start thinking about fabric.

You won't need this much but it sure would be fun to play with. Save the date - June 6, 2018! That's the release date for Block 1 of Block Heads 2.  Since Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles started us off the first time and it turned out well, we're not changing that!  She'll be back, as will the other original Block Heads - Betsy Chutchian, Jo Morton, Jan Patek and Lisa Bongean.  And me. We'll each be bringing a guest - but you'll have to wait until June 6 to find out who that's going to be. Blocks?  There will be some 6" blocks.  And some 12" blocks.  And maybe a few other sizes mixed in.  But you'll hear more about that soon. In the meantime, there are a few Block Heads 1 "finishes" I'd like to share. This quilt is by Pam Moroder via Instagram.  She used a setting similar to Lisa Bongean's, substituting Flying Geese for the half-triangle squares.  Isn't it spectacular? This is by Albany Walters, also via Instagram.  Using just a few fabrics, Albany has created a stunning quilt that looks scrappier than it really is. This is from Lorraine Hofman - yes, Instagram.  Those little Friendship Stars in the cornerstones are a wonderful little touch. This is from Ronda Shrigley Alley - Instagram.  Another wonderful setting with nine-patches and fussy-cut Stars for the cornerstones. And finally... From Carrie.  Two of them.  Carrie Straka did the machine quilting and this is my Used-To-Be-Just-Blue Reproduction Block Heads quilt. So that's it for today - Block Heads Wednesday, May 2. We'll be back in two weeks with more details about what we're making for Block Heads 2 - 2018. Happy Wednesday!
