Block Heads 2 - Block 50

Block Heads 2 - Block 50

Three. This one and two more.

Today's block is by Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life and Sherri & Chelsi. There's a new fabric collection and a couple of Sherri's recent Block Heads 2 blocks to share. The quilt shown above is Sherri's finished Block Heads quilt and you'll have to wait two more weeks to see all of it.

Sneak Peek No. 2. I know... I'm not very patient about that either.

This week's block is titled Vintage, and it finishes at 12" x 12".

Michele's Vintage block is made with Betsy Chutchian's Hope's Journey collection.

Block 50 - Vintage.

Since we don't get to see Sherri's finished quilt yet, here are a few of her recent blocks:

That's Candy Striper - Block 44 - by Vanessa Goertzen - on the top and Gibby - Block 35 - by Laurie Simpson - on the bottom.

This is Sherri's version of Betsy Chuchian's Twelve Crowns - Block 45.

Block 46 - On Point Star from Stacy Iest Hsu.

Sherri made Corey Yoder's pieced Rainbow Vine block in place of Jan Patek's Bird and Basket appliqué block - Block 48.

Corey also created this pieced block to substitute for Laurie Simpson's appliqué block titled Ann Arbor - Block 49.

The other big news for Sherri and Chelsi is the debut of their latest collection - their eighth collection for Moda. It's titled Harper's Garden.

The collection is named after Chelsi's now 5-year old daughter, Harper.

Harper's Garden is being shown to shops now, and will be shipping in September.

And finally... Sherri has teamed with fellow-Block Head Corey Yoder for a terrific new book coming in June - Sunday Best Quilts.

Sunday Best Quilts - Every quilter has a "Sunday Best" list - those special quilts they dream of making someday. Sherri and Corey chose six different quilt themes - star, scrappy, red and white, Christmas, pineapple, and Courthouse Steps. They challenged each other to design a quilt in each style. The result is a dozen spectacular quilts.
