Block Heads 2 - Blocks 25 & 26

Written by: 

Block 26?  Do you know what that means?  We're at the halfway point!  for blocks.  We still have twenty-six weeks to go.

Isn't this block spectacular?  It's wool appliqué on a flannel background.  Lisa Bongean.  Of course.  This is one of the blocks in Primitive Gatherings' 2018 Wool Summer Block of the Week.  There are 84 tiny berries on this block - and the cross-over stitching on the stems... this is gorgeous.

Today's blocks are from Lisa Bongean and Corey Yoder - and because I love flying geese and churndash blocks, these are two of my favorites.  Not that I made them... I'm still not back on track with sewing.  

Thank you Michelle!

Block 25 - Oshkosh Star

Michelle used Reflections by Jo Morton for her Oshkosh Star - and she loved piecing the little 2" star.  

Block 26 - Churndash Surprise

The fabrics are from Betsy Chutchian's Hope's Journey.

So this week's blocks are:

Block 25 - Oshkosh Star

Block 26 - Churndash Surprise

Remember... if the blogs aren't up or the links aren't working, check the Moda Block Heads 2 Archive.  Because if you're reading this, it's already been updated and it will have what you're looking for.

These are Blocks 19 and 20 from Corey - she did a star variation instead of the appliqué block.  She's mixing fabrics from all of her collections with beautiful results.

Lisa has been using a gray, black and "primitive ivory" color palette for her blocks, mixing fabrics from a couple of her past collections.  This quilt is also going to be really, really good.  

One last thing for today... Lisa Bongean has partnered with Annette Plog of Petite Quilts for a One Block Challenge.  You might have seen that Annette did this with Betsy Chutchian and Laurie Simpson earlier this year.  Now it's Lisa Bongean's block.

Lisa's block is called Diamond Plaid and you can get all the information about the Challenge on Lisa's Blog and on Annette's Blog.

That's it for Week 18 of the Block Heads 2.

Happy Wednesday!
