It's Blockheads Wednesday again

And the block for this week is 
Path thru the Woods by
Betsy Chutchian 


To download the pattern for her block click here.
And to go to her blog and see what she did
with the block click here.


Have I mentioned before that piecing is not my first love?
This is why - you have to pay too much attention
or your block looks like this instead of the way Betsy designed it.
I almost left it this way because I like it too but decided to take it
apart and put it back together Betsy's way.


This is my Bird and Urn Wallhanging 
made out of my Coral Bells fabric line.
The kit is on sale this week for 30% off. 

Oh. and our book on special this month is
Porch Swing.  I thought I would show you the 
back cover because it has a quilt designed that I love
by a good friend of mine, Cherie Ralston.

You can get the book or the kit by clicking here.


So now lets go see what the other designers 
have done with Betsy's block.
Lynne of Kansas Troubles
Barb & Mary of Me and My Sister
Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic
Vanessa of Lella Boutique
Betsy Chutchian
Stacy lest Hsu
Laurie Simpson of Minick & Simpson
Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life
Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings
Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts
Carrie Nelson of Moda's Cutting Table

Jo Morton of Jo's Quilts probably won't be posting
in Blockheads much except when it's her block
 but you might just want
to drop in and see what she's doing.

If so, click here.

Well, that makes 12.
I seem to be Lucky 13.

See you next week ladies.

July 4th, 2018 & Moda Blockheads II, Block #5

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
Hope you have a safe one.


The kids (kids- one is 47 and one is 43 but they'll always be my kids). 
Anyway their work schedules didn't agree so Brian and his wife and 4
came up on Saturday and Max and his 2 kids - his wife had to work - 
came up on Sunday.
There were lots and lots of big booming noises and a
heavy downpour Saturday night so Pep relaxed a little
about fire.

I think today I will just sit and stitch while Pep watches TV.

This is Block #5 - Impact
designed by Vanessa Goertzen.
You can download the pattern by clicking here.


And you can go see what Vanessa's been doing
with her block by clicking here.


And since it's the 4th of July it seemed like a good time to
put my BOM pattern "Flags of the American Revolution" on sale.
Pep and I just watched a series on John Adams and the Revolution 
and it was awesome.  
The pattern includes comments on each flag and why it is included.
The center eagle came from an antique quilt.
Pep says it looks like a turkey that was run over by a truck.
That would be appropriate as Benjamin Franklin
thought our national bird should be a turkey - not an eagle.
You can buy the pattern for 25% off by clicking here.

have done with Vanessa's block.
