Moda Blockheads 2-Wednesday - Time for........

Block #10

Duck and Ducklings
by Jo Morton


To download the pattern click here.
To go to see what she's been doing and
what she did with her block click here.

This is my quilt Sleigh Bells.  
It was a Mystery Quilt one year so you had to 
get the kit each month in order to make the quilt.


Now Martingale has done an awesome job of
publishing a book full of pictures of each block 
along with the patterns.
I am really happy - they did a wonderful job.
Thanks Martingale.  :)

Hopefully most shops will be carrying it so go to your local quilt shop and see.
Or of course, we're carrying them in our store.

If you're a shop and want to order some for your store 
                                           you can order by visiting their website at 
                                               MartingaleWholesale.com              
                                             or by calling 1-800-426-3126       
   
I got an email awhile ago asking for the name of a quilt a lady had seen.
She described it as having
"a house and a tree and a cat".
I really couldn't think at the time but 
it might be this one.
  If so it is Cherry Tree Lane.

I decided to put this on the blog because by the time I
thought of it, I had, of course, lost the woman's email.  

Back to  SLEIGH BELLS.

Make a comment - any old comment - about winter,
about summer, about anything --
and next week I will have the Random Number Generator pick a
winner to send a copy of Sleigh Bells.

So now lets go see what the other designers 
have done with Jo'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

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

Until next week ladies, 
Keep quilting.:)

  4. I love walking my dog in the woods in the winter. The gray sky, the black, bare tree branches all make our brilliantly red cardinals stand out.

  5. I enjoy all our seasons! I like winter best though. :)

  6. Well dear Jan, I am fortunate to live on the southern coast of North Carolina. We have four pretty distinct seasons. Last year we had (for us) a cold winter and I promised that I would it complain if it got really hot & humid this summer...needless to say, I have had to zip my mouth since mid June! Thank you for all your amazing designs.

  12. I love Fall and Winter the best. First, fall starts to cool off the weather from summer (I hate the hot months) and then winter brings the RAIN!!! I’ve loved the rain since I was a little girl. Thank you for a chance to win Sleigh Bells��

  15. Martingale does make lovely books! Since I don't like cold weather at all, I think Sleigh Bells is perfect - all the fun of making a snowman without having to put a coat and mittens on!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Winter baking and nesting with needle and thread, or summer frolics with needle and thread... it's a tie!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sleigh Bells looks like a real winner with all your fun designs wrapped up in one happy quilt. It makes winter fun! I would love to include it in my quilt book library!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Seasons are different all over .... in Canada where I grew up..... winter seemed long and the summers short.... the snow was sooooo pristine. Now here in Arizona good weather exceeds the bad and it is pure heaven. Sleigh bells quilt reminds me of a Canadian Christmas

  20. Making this lovely quilt would help pass the time during the long, cold, snowy winters that we have in central NY

  21. I am one of "those" people, I like winter. I love to watch snow fall and even enjoy scooping it. Too bad summer last so long; I could use a little more winter and fall.

  41. Sleigh Bells is so pretty! This summer has been extra hot, so we can only dream about winter, can't we? It is so humid here in Alabama. We won't have any cooler weather until the end of October. Ugh! I love Jan's patterns and entertaining videos! Pam in Alabama

  59. Calgary is about to break all time heat records this afternoon. The previous record of 34 C (93 F) was set in 1991. We're at that now and a high of 37 C (99 F) is predicted. That's no big deal for some of you, but it is hot for the foothills of the Rockies. I watered the gardens early this morning and I'm cooling off in my basement sewing room.

    ReplyDelete
  60. We got tired of the heat after living in the Phoenix valley for 47 years and moved to the mountains. Love it and love primitive anything. I was always drawn to wool, but stayed away from it because wool and Phoenix don't go together. Now I can use wool!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I Love Spring & Winter! I live in FL. where temps can be a little wicked HOT! At least in Spring we have a Wonderful reprieve from the heat, with cooler breezes flowing daily.. Great for cleaning out my gardens & planting Beautiful new flowers..Winter can be the same, as well! A change of comforting cool temps & then, about a couple of times, we get below freezing temps, but only briefly.. Summer here worries everyone, because of the Hurricane threats & Hits.. (Last Year was Horrific.. Fall here is still Hot, so to get relief, when we can, we are off to the mountains.. I LOVE the True four Seasons, so for all who have that, Please Enjoy each one..

    ReplyDelete

  88. You are the queen of primitive/folk/country applique design, Jan! You are the first designer who inspired me to strive towards quilt making. The Snowbound quilt did it for me. After 20+ years of my own quilt making journey, I can now say I am experienced enough to take on just about any quilting challenge! Love your comforting, home-you designs.

Thank you for doing what you do to bring a little folk art into our lives, you and your team are deeply appreciated!
