Happy Blockheads Wednesday! It’s Week 21 of Blockheads 5, Group 2 – just 9 more weeks to go after this! For today’s block, we are so excited to welcome a new Blockheads designer, Stephanie Sliwinski of Fancy That Design House. Stephanie’s style is inspirational, warm, and earthy with a boho-prairie vibe. Many of you know and love her beautiful tea towels and t-shirts, which you can find on her online shop! Stephanie has a new collection that is available for quilt shops to preorder right now. Things Above is a companion collection to her popular debut collection, Songbook. You can preview Things Above here – be sure to check it out and tell your favorite quilt shop to order it!

Something new we’re doing for this round of Blockheads is a weekly video.

I’ll post the videos on YouTube and share them here on the blog. You can watch this week’s video below:
