Block Heads 2 - Block 27
Happy Block Heads Wednesday - one block per week Wednesday!
I love this quilt! Do the blocks look familiar? This is Lynne's finished Block Heads 1 quilt - it's included in the soon-to-be-released Block Heads book. I love Lynne's setting - it's in the book - especially how she used Jan's eight appliqué blocks in the corners of the second border.
You've probably already guessed that today is Lynne Hagmeier's block-day. She's one of the original Block Heads, and the one who got the Block Heads idea rolling as a way of celebrating traditional blocks and fabrics. Huzzah Lynne!
Moda Michele. She's my savior - and a sweetheart. The fabrics used in her Mountain Climbing block are from Betsy Chutchian's Evelyn's Homestead. (Thank you Michele.)
A huge thank you to Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life and Sherri & Chelsi for sharing her beautiful Mountain Climbing block. She's used fabrics from several Sherri & Chelsi collections, including Clover Hollow and the showing-to-shops-now Walkabout. (Thank you,
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.
Two more things to share today - as I wrote above, the Block Heads book is almost here. It's scheduled to be released on December 4, 2018.
There will be a book-signing at Fall Market for the book - and I think you can expect a few giveaways before the end of the year.
I also wanted to share Lynne's beautiful new On Meadowlark Pond collection from the August catalog.
It's hard to see in the picture but the darkest fabrics at the top are on a Black background. With the rich gold, almost pumpkin pieces, it's the beginnings of a beautiful quilt like this one from Lynne's Cozy Quilts & Comforts book.
A perfect Fall quilt... making mental note - must get more plaids.
